Tea Blog-a-thon Week 4 - Tea Linens

I'm joining in LaTeaDah's Tea-Blog-a-Thon with sharing a few tea time linens. I don't do the beautiful needlework some of you do, so I'm sharing what my friends made!
A friend made this beautiful tea cozy from vintage linens. Another friend bought it and gave it to me! Above is the front side.
This (above) is the back of the tea cozy. It also has a thick vellum lining to keep the tea pot hot!
My friend Jan made this pretty tea cozy for me as a gift! It is the same front and back. It is made of quilted fabric, with the tea cup appliqued on.
Above: I like the name tag she sewed inside with her name on it!
I'm cheating a little here with the Sandy L. Clough tea towel, it isn't handmade, but is very pretty!
This is where it is displayed. You saw the shelf above recently.

I have some bun warmer linens, but couldn't find the one that ties all over making little spaces for buns (scones) Oh well, it isn't handmade anyway, but is so cute. I hope y'all know what I'm talking about, it's hard to describe!

Isn't this Tea Blog-a-Thon fun!

P.S. - On ABC tonight at 10 EDST (after American Idol) watch The Last Lecture, A Love Story For Your Life (on Diane Sawyer's show) You'll be glad you watched it!
(Thursday's note: If you missed the Primetime show go to www.ABC.com and they have some videos there you can see.) Or, go to YouTube and see the original video, type in Randy Pausch, The Last Lecture.

Katherine,
Both tea cozies are so sweet. I love the tea towel too. I think I've seen the bun warmer linens you are talking about.

You are a blessed lady to have friends to make you something like that. I love your tea cozies. Each of them are so pretty. Your tea towel is pretty too.

These are just darling! I know things like these are even more special when handmade, but I love the Sandy Clough tea towel too!

What beautiful tea cozies. I especially love the floral print because it looks like chintz china!

Those tea cozies are so elegant! I just love them. And the tea towels and all your pretty tea linens are charming. Thank you for sharing them!

Both of your tea cozies are wonderful. But I especially like the one with the yellow rose! What wonderful gifts from dear friends!

Thank you for stopping by and visiting my blog. Oh, I wanted to buy the yellow shoes. Very badly wanted to. But I knew what I already had on hold at the front desk. Did you see the sweet little yellow leather shoes on the shelf near the yellow pitcher? Those were the first I saw and I was tempted. Oh, so tempted. I checked the other day and both pairs were still there. Maybe! Hmmm...

Your tea linens are lovely. I always smile that your friends know so well your love of yellow roses.

I've seen Randy Pausch's talk before. He's very brave and his message is a good one.
