Announcement   Thank you for visiting Tea Hens! Yes, that's a play on words. I've always enjoyed a cup of hot tea in the morning, at noon, at three, and occasionally in the evening. My favorite cup right now is Taylors of Harrogate's Scottish Breakfast Tea although Murroughs Welsh Brew is a close second.

And, while I don't have any pea hens I do own a barred Plymouth Rock named Henrietta. Her sister, Edna, who can be seen in my shop banner, had to be put down in 2015 after a long and productive life. Both "girls" provided me with many hours of entertainment plus eggs! Henrietta doesn't share my love of tea but she'll eat anything else.

I've been sewing and crocheting since my grade school days and, like many who love these handicrafts, have accumulated quite a stash of fabric and yarn. I've also admired many lovely tea cozies over the years. So, putting those two together (along with my chickens), I decided to start up Tea Hens to offer quality tea cozies for you and clear more closet space for me. With few exceptions, each cozy will be one-of-a-kind as I work through my stash. I hope you find something you like!

NEW! Well, new here anyway -- my Tea Hens blog. I'm hoping to update it more often in 2016 having failed to do so in 2015. For now, please enjoy past entries: http://teahens.wordpress.com/

This is beautiful! I can tell you put in a lot of work with the detailing with the beads. Very well made and durable too. Excellent product with speedy delivery service. Please don't hesitate to buy from this shop.

About

Tea and Chickens

I was inspired by young friends with Etsy shops to start a shop of my own. I enjoy sewing, crocheting, gardening, cooking, keeping chickens, playing music, and reading. The first challenge was to take my hobbies and talents and turn them into goods for sale in a shop. For some reason, tea cozies and tea wallets popped into my head almost immediately.

The first cozies I made were chicken-shaped and I giggled every time I looked at them but they really only appealed to a select few who shared my sense of humor, so I broadened my scope. I make dome shaped cozies because they are easy to construct and also offer a nice blank canvas to embellish if I want to.

The tea wallets are my own design and I like them because there are so many other uses for them. From tea bags to cards to ladies' personal items, my tea wallets can hold them all, and very prettily too.

I also make cloth trivets and table runners to go under the tea pot. I don't call them pot holders because they aren't nearly heavy enough to pick up a really hot item like a casserole dish straight from the oven, but they're perfect for protecting a table top from a hot pot of tea.

I work from home on my kitchen table. I do this mostly for my own enjoyment. I take my time to make each item well and unique. I don't rush because I don't want my work to look rushed or mass-produced. I also want to continue enjoying what I do rather than have it turn into a major chore. Inspiration for colors and designs is not something that strikes me 24/7, so I take my time and let my ideas unfold naturally.
