Scottish Tea Cozy

Hello everyone,
Wow, these weeks just fly by. While sweetheart and I were on our trip to the coast I found a wonderful shop in old town Eureka. The shop sells beautiful clothes from Scotland and Ireland and other specialty items. I was so excited when I spotted this adorable tea cozy. I love going on trips and finding  wonderful things that I can enjoy long after our trips are just a memory.
I also found a tea towel with four different symbols representing Scotland's heritage.
The Lion Rampant is referred to as the 'Royal Flag of Scotland'
I set the tea table with some shortbread, fruitcake and raspberry filled cookies from Tuesday Morning.

My Thistle tea cup is such a traditional symbol of Scotland
The Thistle is the National Emblem of Scotland
The bagpiper of Scotland
I picked my zinnias and blue delphinium for this bouquet.
I love my flowers...Even when the weather is so hot outside you could fry and egg on the sidewalk the little darlings just keep blooming. I think this photo looks like a watercolor.

The white tea cozy is made of wool and the pom-pom on top reminds me of the pom-pom on the top of my Scottish tam. The beautiful cable design is amazing.

Thanks for visiting today. I hope you have a wonderful week.
