13 Collections ~ Part Nine

I’m joining Becky in her October Square Photo Challenge over at The Life of B. The rules of the challenge are simple: most photos must be square and fit the theme word Past. Look for #PastSquares. This month we’re travelling back in time in the western Queensland town of Miles and surrounds. We’ll explore the local area and join in the festivities at the Miles Back to the Bush Festival.

Miles Back to the Bush Festival

What do you call a collection of tea cosies?

Dozens of tea cosies appeared in Miles during the Back to the Bush Festival. Made by knitters, crocheters and textiles artists from all around Australia, the tea cosies were sold with the proceeds going to charity.

Some colourful vintage examples accompanied Jean’s doll collection.

An elaborate bespoke tea cosy decorated with embroidered gum leaves was displayed in the Art Gallery at Dogwood Crossing@Miles.

And the Festival Pop-Up Store overflowed with fabulous hand-crafted cosies of all shapes and sizes.

So what do you call a collection of tea cosies?

There seems to be no collective noun for tea cosies so let’s nominate our own. I’m voting for “A Snug of Tea Cosies”. What’s your choice?
