Cup Cozy Giveaway!!

Tis time for another giveaway on this here blog. 

This time I’m featuring my buddy Melinda and her shop called Vivid Texture.  She’ll be giving this original handmade Cup Cozy to one lucky winner.  She also writes a blog here.

What’s a Cup Cozy?  This is a Cup Cozy:



Here’s Melinda’s description of her creation:

Cup Cozy with Needle Felted Polka Dots

This grass green cup cozy is adorned with blue polka dots, which were added using the technique of needle felting. Needle felting is a process of stabbing wool with barbed needles to interlock the fibers.

The green felt comes from an upcycled, wool sweater. The top of the cozy has two layers to keep beverage toasty, and features a vintage button for pulling the cozy off of your cup.

About Cup Cozies:

Felt is a great insulator and will keep your hot beverages hot! I made my first one on a whim and loved how it kept my tea warm while it steeped.

Why a cup cozy?
A cup cozy will keep your tea or coffee hot while you are setting-up your work for the day, taking a shower, or whatever pulls you away from that steaming cup. Don’t be disappointed by lukewarm, keep it hot with a cup cozy!

Air dry after each use. Hand wash with cool water, or machine wash on gentlest cycle, cold water. Air dry.

The rules of entry:

1.  Head to Melinda’s shopand peruse her awesome products.  She does a great job in repurposing old materials and making new, functional items that are excellent quality and inexpensive.   

2.  Leave me a comment with your favorite item.  My favorite item is this egg cup pin cushion!

3.  I will pick the winner using the trusty Random Numbers Generator on Wednesday, August 12th at noon Central Time Zone. 


That’s it!  Good luck!
