Here's a little challenge for you...  I have added a few new items to this room since you last saw it a few months ago.  Can you spot them?  
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!
