Kitschy Koala Tea Cozy...

Just when you may have thought
I had slowly started
to cross the line from
"Granny Goodness"
to borderline 
"Kitsch"
with my

Kitschy Koala Tea Cozy...

I lost the plot...
and
dove head over heels into kitsch...

With the Kitschy Koala Tea Cozy...

I knew there was some "twee" in me...
just waiting to pour out...

Kitschy Koala Tea Cozy...


So with a lot of patterns to finish writting out...
I will just
have to leave you for now with some
pretty kitschy pictures to enjoy...

http://simple.wikipedia.org/wiki/Koala

"Koalas (Phascolarctos cinereus) are herbivore marsupials that live in eastern Australia.They are the only species of the family Phascolarctidae.

The koala is also often called the koala bear because it looks like a small bear or teddy bear. However, it is not a bear.Its name is just "koala"

NEVER EVER, is the Koala called native bear in Australia, and if it is, it is by uneducated international visitors.

Thanks Kaycee for your comments...
I did "copy and paste" out of the New Oxford Dictionary on my Apple...
I thought that some of my overseas bloggers and visiters might find it interesting and helpful to know the meanings...
Thanks for the update as it will help
many who want to know more about our native wildlife here in Australia...
Regards Michelle...

Love the Koala ....never got to see a real one while over in OZ (in NSW) last summer,although I looked and looked-but this one looks pretty neat!

It especially looks good on that garden table!
