There were some pretty good tea cosies in the various Tea Time swaps, this was the last one I believe http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=196045.0

I made a tea cosy for it, and certainly not a traditional one

It's swedish, and when I'm at it: Welcome back to Sweden, Ms Marple.  Wink

I'm soooo into this one, whenever it is. I wouldn't have time to organize though.

Hi Xray Kitten, thanks!! I'm super excited about moving home  Grin (although houses in Stockholm are so Shocked expensive we can't find somewhere nice to live so it's a bit stressful at the moment...) And hi to Kenners too, nice to meet some Swedish Craftsters!

Well, we're moving in August, and I thought as soon as I get a broadband connection up and running (but first a house to put the computer in...) I'll start sign-ups. How does that sound to everybody? I'm really pleased so many are interested, think this should be a fun swap!!

I'm still interested, too, whenever it is.

For Melyssa_Marie:
So, these are based not only on tea selection, but also the food.

Miss Molly's - Medina, OH -
This is the one we go to most often. It has an extensive selection of teas. I recommend the tea sandwich sampler - yummy. I've never had a bad experience, and I love that they have Chai Teas (the David Roos collection, including some that are caffeine-free and some that are sugar-free). They have scrumptious scones (changes daily) and serve them with the best devonshire creme and raspberry preserves. Be prepared for the decor - extremely Victorian. You'll routinely see baby showers and birthdays with ladies in ridiculous hats - how many places can you play dress-up without being considered a freak? They have a cute, yet slightly pricey gift shop with lots of tea themed things, and you can buy their loose tea to take home.

Clementine's - Olmsted Falls, OH
This is a good trip because it's in the Grand Pacific Junction, so as long as you don't go on Sunday, you can stop at all of the little shops - there's a fantastic bead store, and Jorgensen's Apiary - check out their Bare Naked Foot Cream - the best!  They have a pretty good tea selection, and flavored coffess, and the food is great. I recommend the quiche - to die for. The have the most decadent desserts. If you get a table upstairs, you have plenty of room to move.

Tree House Gallery and Tea Room - Avon, OH
It's been awhile, but I like this place alot. We went in late summer, and they had the best summer salads - full of fruit and flavor!  The tea selection was limited, but the food is worth it. This one is also tucked away with lots of shops, but the best was at Tree House itself. It was chuck full of those primitive pumpkin-headed dolls with the square teeth and big eyes - a style I like to call psycho chic!

Rose Cottage Tea Room - Chardon, OH
They have a smaller selection of teas. Good quiche and we tried the high tea fancies - all good, depending on personal taste and preference. Our waitress was a little scattered, but ok. Probably my least favorite of the ones listed.

We also once took our mom to high tea at the Ritz-Carlton downtown. The tea steward was very knowledgable. It was very formal and fancy. I'm a picky eater, so I wasn't up for most of the tea savories, but the fancies were good. Just don't go hungry - I made them stop for a hamburger on the way home.

I know there are more down in the Akron-Canton area, and also closer to Downtown Cleveland, so I think we'll be working on getting to those soon. Hope this was helpful.
Do you have any faves?
