The Queen was in the Parlour, eating bread and honey...

With a special and glorious cup of Mariage Frères Happy Queen tea!!

Seeing their new tea for the Queen's Silver Jubilee has inspired me to make a collection of elegant and Queenly tea cosies, to add some sparkle and lusciousness to the gloomy grey of winter...

I'm not really 'into' the Royal Family from a moral standpoint, I'm more interested in Australia being a Republic; and yet, I am REALLY into dress-ups, which the Royals do well!

Now to look for some diamonds, diamanté beads and anything sparkly...

Swarovski crystals are very sparkly, and come in iron on forms perfect for textiles... If the neon pink is anything to go by, these cozies will be utterly sublime!

Oh how excellent, I was thinking about how much blind I can cover a cosy with, and Swarovsky crystals will be perfect! Thanks Anastasia xx

Aw, this was a really nice post. In idea I would like to put in writing like this additionally – taking time and actual effort to make a very good article… but what can I say… I procrastinate a lot and by no means seem to get something done.
