Tea Tuesday

Tuesday is coming and that means time for TEA!

I was listening to Music from the Tea Lands while I composed this post.
Fun!




I'm sharing two teapots we purchased in New Mexico from the husband and wife team that makeup 
Rabbit Art Works.
He makes the pots and she does the painting.
Both teapots are signed and dated: one made in 1989 and the other in 1990.





The top row of the mosaic shows a close-up of the smaller pot and its lid.
The second row shows the larger pot and its lid.
The third row shows the back of both pots.




I have other porcelain pieces from Rabbit Art Works:
 some candlesticks and a vase with a beautiful kitty illustration.
I wondered if they were still in the ceramics business and I googled and YES -- they are shown in several galleries in Santa Fe.




I think I like these pots because they have personalities besides making a good cup of tea.
They are just the right size and shape (nice big bellies) for brewing tea. 

Tuesday is time for tea in the blogging world!
Teacup Tuesday is hosted by Martha and Terri.
Join in the celebration of Tea by visiting.

I have a couple more tea blogs for you:
Angela  at Tea With Friends
and

Have a wonderful Tea Tuesday and a JOY filled week.

Since I love Bunnies, I may have to find a gallery that carries their work when I'm in Santa fe in a couple weeks.

Your handpainted bunny teapots are lovely. I too like their full rounded shape.
