Animated Tea Cosy


Gardening, growing your own and greenhouses have become super popular over the last couple of years as we have been enjoying our gardens more, and this is what inspired me to design a greenhouse tea cosy.

The main part of the tea cosy forms the actual greenhouse. The structural parts of the greenhouse are white and the 'glass' is silver.

Being a gardener myself, I understand the delight of growing something from seed under glass and nurturing it to grow the biggest, tallest, and tastiest in all things. And I thought it would be fun to have an oversized tomato growing out of the greenhouse ventilation window.

I find that my greenhouse is a bit of an untidy place. I think it's because it's the working part of the garden, so there are often weeds outside, and a watering can is never far away, ready to feed my tomatoes. And I often have things in pots outside too, usually to harden off, or just because I have grown too many, and I have incorporated these things into the design. There is a lovely big sunflower around the back of the greenhouse in full bloom.

I thought it would be lovely to add a little bit of wildlife to the tea cosy, so I made a little hedgehog. He's hiding around the side and he's looking for tasty slugs.

It's a lovely tea cosy for summer teatimes in the garden and its perfect for gardeners who love to potter about in the greenhouse.

Go green with a fabulous greenhouse tea cosy. It's a green fingers delight.
