I found quite a treasure at another doll show I attended last weekend. I have been looking for one of these knitted tea cozies made with a porcelain half doll for a few years. My dear friend LaVonne found one and I have coveted, yes coveted, it ever since she showed it to me! She always says to me, just be patient, it will come to you someday. She is a wise friend. I almost jumped up and down when I found this sweet lady.
I think she is so darling, holding onto her hat with both hands. She is making her home now in Troutdale, known for our famous East Winds!
She was made with an opening for the teapot's spout and the teapot's handle.
I bought it from a lady who was so happy it was going to a good home. She found it in New Zealand and used it for years, but thought maybe it actually came from England. It doesn't matter to me! I love it.
I will treasure her and give her a very good home. She is made from a half doll, which I also love. She was made in Germany and has markings on her back.
I was doing a bit of research and came across this knitting book for making these little tea cozies.
I'm surprised that I haven't come across one at the many Estate sales I go to!
I also found several pictures of theses lovely ladies on the internet. I think I need to do a Pinterest board on them. Enjoy!
So Happy Tea Time Thursday. I hope to start decorating tomorrow for fall. I have gathered some new teas for tea time.I love the taste of fall!
