Did I tell you about the day I walked into the local art gallery last month and spied a lovely hat in the items for sale? I was taken by it so I tried it on. It fit perfectly. I wore it about the gallery while I looked at the most recent painting show, pondering whether I should buy it. Did I really NEED another hat??? I even went in the bathroom to see how I looked in it. Rather cute, I thought, if I do say so myself.
So I took it off to check the dangling little price tag and noticed it was marked ........
"$xx - hand felted tea cozy"
Uhm. Oh. So. That's a first for me. I've worn tiaras, crowns, hats, dogs, even starfish on my head. But this was my first time in public with a tea cozy atop my brain.
Fast forward to Valentine's Day. Hubby's gift to me -
The tea cozy hat! I love it.
"Never trust a man who, when left alone in a room with a tea cozy, doesn't try it on." ~Billy Connolly
Yes, but what about a woman?
See the hole in the back? I thought it was for putting a ponytail through. I know, go ahead and laugh. I tried some of my tea pots under it and it actually doesn't work well as a tea cozy at all. Too tight in girth, the hole is too high up to be an use, to hard to take off. So, hat it is. I'm going to sew up the hole.
And all that brown and green behind you? Now under a foot of snow again. So I'll have more opportunity to wear it before the cold weather is gone for the season. Now I just need a purple sweater or jacket to go with it!
