Tea cozy treasure,

End fifties my aunt and uncle imigrated to the U.S.A., as a lot of people imigrated in those tough years. The world was huge in those years, and my grandparents thought they would never see their dougther again. When they left, my mom made her this teacozy,

I love how she made and finished it with the band and lining.

As time passed by the world seems a lot smaller, and there have been many visits and warm contacts. On one of those last visits my aunt brought the teacozy back to the Netherlands and gave it to me.
I love and treasure it and it will stay in our family like one of those sweet family pieces.

Geweldig dat deze wereldreiziger na al die jaren nog zó mooi is! Ik hou altijd heel erg van objecten met een verhaal, leuk dat hier ook nog eens handwerk van een geliefde persoon bij komt. Fijne dag!
