Devonshire Strawberry Picker Tea Cosy
Tea and Strawberries anyone? Find out what inspired me to design the Devonshire Strawberry Picker Tea Cosy.
Inspired by the popular BBC documentary â€˜The Edwardian Farmâ€™ and Ruth Goodmanâ€™s efforts to create a strawberry market garden, I have designed the Devonshire Strawberry Picker tea cosy.
I have made her dress Edwardian style, as a market garden worker may look. I was thinking of the well-known phrase, you are what you eat, and I drew her. And I have made her look a little bit like a strawberry in a red dress with a green shawl.
I have given her a basket of strawberries that she has picked.
I havenâ€™t drawn any arms, the sketch was getting a bit cluttered, but I think she does need arms to hold the basket and to maybe have a fruit in her hand.
She makes me feel really summery, and a Devonshire cream tea is the perfect accompaniment to this charming tea cosy. The perfect summer afternoon, tea and strawberries.
