Lilacs for Spring

Another tea cosy?!


Just had to knit this one because I loved these shades of purple and lilac together.


Looks good with my vintage Royal Vale lilac tea cups and saucers.



Just right for spring ... well, what passes for spring here in the west of Scotland!


Trying not to think about biscuits today!



Joining with Tea Time Tuesday.

Love, Liz

How pleasant to have lilacs for Spring! Your purple and lavender tea cosy is beautiful and cheery. I love the Royal Vale lavender flowers on your cups and saucers. This is certainly a wonderful way to spend tea time.

I bought some purple shades of wool last week with the idea of making some cushions. Your cups are very pretty.

Hi Liz,
Oh, I cannot wait for the scent of lilacs but it will be a while before they bloom here. Winter is still very much with us. Your tea cozy is very cute and the teacups are lovely. A pretty tea post! Thank you for sharing and joining me for tea. Hope you're having a lovely day.

Blessings,
Sandi

I love the pretty lilacs you used for this tea cosy and they do go so well with your pretty violet tea cups and saucers. Biscuits....something chocolaty wrapped in purple foil or maybe a nice Cadbury's mini roll?

Very pretty together. Love those colors. and your tea cozy is so cute. do you get tea stains on it near the spout? How do you get them out? I would love to use one like that, but would hate to stain it. Thanks.

Such pretty teacups, but I have to confess I'm loving the tea cozy in the two tone purple.

How wonderfully charming! I'm more excited for spring's return than I've been in many years and cannot wait for the lilacs, purple and white alike, to start blossoming around our town again. I gather some from friends and relative's yards and fill as many rooms in the house as possible with them (as their scent is amongst my most favourite in the whole world).

Big hugs & many thanks for your lovely blog comment,
♥ Jessica
