Hoppy Spring!

I went to the Spring Fling at the zoo.
Lovely breakfast buffet, a mimosa or two, and cookies!

This morning I decided to make a pot of tea and eat one of those cookies.

Easter Tea

The Happiness is a Bunny Rabbit mug is by Emma Bridgewater.
The teapot is hand built porcelain and painted by New Mexico artists -- a husband and wife team.
I've had it for over 30 years.
One of my real treasures.
The cookies are on a bunny plate from Pier One.

I couldn't resist the zebra and the monkey cookies.
There were butterflies and tulips on other cookies,
but I was at the zoo and just had to have the zoo animals.
 Cookies By Design made the cookies.

Easter Tea/Hoppy Spring!

Happy Easter! Some bunny loves you.

And remember --

“Easter is the only time of the year when it's perfectly safe to put all your eggs in one basket.”

Thank you to our tea party hosts:

Wishing YOU well, much joy, a delightful cup of tea and a happy and blessed Easter.

I love anything with bunnies on it! And those cookies are so cute -- almost too cute to eat. Almost.

Vee said...

Good for you! Are you sure that you could eat only one? I'm wondering which one you might choose to eat first. Those are pretty amazing cookies and your tea pot is darling. As you say, a real treasure.

I gather you have a wonderful collection of bunnies, Snap. The teapot is charming. As for the cookies, I wonder if you stopped at only one with your tea. :)

If I ever get back to the UK I'm going to find an Emma Bridgewater mug that calls me every morning.

I like the bunny teapot and mug Snap, and the cookies are so cute. Did you bite the heads off first? We go through this when eating animal crackers with the grands.

Tea in Texas said...

Adorable bunny teapot! Your Bridgewater bunny mug is the perfect addition to the teapot. I love your zoo animal cookies. It is hard for me to eat the decorated cookies for they are almost to pretty to eat but I do. Have a wonderful Easter!


Martha said...

TheThe cookies are so cute but what I like most is that teapot -- I covet that -- what a sweet teapot! And so original!

Well that is certainly one happy table. I love how you always surround yourself with things that make you joyful. xox

How lovely! I have several Emma Bridgewater mugs at home here in Vancouver and also in England. Near my village in OXON there is a pottery place where they make similar to Bridgewater mugs and I can't stop buying those either! I don't blame you one bit for your choice of cookies; I'd get the zebra and monkey over butterflies and tulips any day. Hugs :)

Janet said...

I don't know if I could eat those cookies...I'd want to save them because they're so cute!

Have a marvelous and blessed Easter dear lady.

Cheers, hugs and blessings from Wanda Lee

This post made me smile...I am still smiling. The bold bunny teapot and large bright cookies combined with your words about this being the only time you can put all your eggs in one basket, well, it just makes me happy.

I love the teapot !
