Just kidding. Not about the new items though, because there are some new things in here.
A couple of weeks ago Jonquil had a challenge for us to count the number of new items in her room. To my complete surprise I came closest with my count and thus was the winner of an embroidered teacosy!
Maybe it's because I am a tea drinker, but I love all kinds of accessories related to drinking tea. In this room I have quite a number of them already. Recent additions are the Jack Cashmere teapot (which I showed in this post) and the painting by Elly Ypma 'Portrait of Machteld Muilman' (original in the Rijksmuseum by Frans van der Mijn, ca. 1745-1749).
The embroidered flowers and the colours of Jonquil's teacosy fit perfectly here. Of course I won't be putting it over the teapot as I still want to see that as well.
Isn't it pretty? The embroidery is so fine! When I put it next to my own embroidery 'doodle' from a few weeks ago, it showed me I still have lots to learn ;-)
Thank you very much Jonquil, I love it!
