Winding down….

Winding down….

It's been a fun ten years making and selling these wool felt tea cosies -- as well as the coffee and mug cosies -- and it's been delightful and marvelous that tea and coffee drinkers from around the world have liked them enough to want them in their homes too.  Thank...

Ahhhh, Fall

New in stock is the lovely, warm, Magenta wool felt for a great spark of colour on your table whether you're keeping your tea or coffee hot.   Also new is a Pistachio green which is offered as an option for the mug cosies and is integrated into some of the recent...

Coffee Daze

Coffee Daze

2020 has certainly not been the nicest of years but look, we’re 3/4 through and there’s a holiday season on the horizon.  I’m opting for the glass-half-full view today (am not focusing on nixed winter travel plans, for instance). Today is National Coffee day in Canada...
