Happy New Year, everyone! My break went a little longer than originally planned, due to excessive snow in the UK, last-minute timetable changes and an impromptu trip home to Canada. I’m back in London now, and ready to embrace 2011 with open arms. But as we all know, January can be a dreary, depressing month. My top tip for beating the blues? Stay inside with a mug of something warm and steaming. To keep it that way, check out these handmade cozies from Etsy:
1. I received one of Anne Bursey’s Wool Coffee Warmers for Christmas, and can’t wait to put it through its paces. Like a touque for your Bodum! 2. I’ve featured KnitStorm‘s work before, but this bright orange cozy was too sweet to resist.
3. This set of two knitted egg cozies from Imali is just about the sweetest thing ever, don’t you think? 4. But of course, Riley Co.‘s Forest Fox Coffee Cozy could give them a run for their money. 5. I love the traditional style of this Cornishware-style striped tea cozy from The Fluffy Duck.
6. This chic tea cozy from Argyle St. is made from luxurious cashmere felt. 7. Inklore‘s Ray of Light linen cozy is modern chic at its best.
