Here Come The Bunnies!

Easter is just around the corner.
I pulled my favorite bunny porcelain tea pot and mug from the cupboard.
They were made in New Mexico by a husband and wife team.
He did the hand building of the pieces and she was the artist.
They are some of the first ceramic pieces that Mr. Dragon gave to me.

Ready for Easter

I love the bunny wearing tennis shoes.
Guess he's getting ready for a busy Easter!

Bunny Tea Pot

The teapot reminds me of Old MacDonald's Farm with the veggies and bunny!

Porcelain Bunny Mug

Then there is the mug with all the wonderful hearts filled with bunnies.

Easter Tea

The egg-shaped bunny plates I found at Pier One.
Orange-cranberry scones.

I selected Tazo Zen tea to steep in my bunny pot. 
It is a green tea blend made with pan-fired green teas from China
and blended with lemon verbena leaves, lemongrass and spearmint leaves.
It has a sweet, lingering taste ... very Zen.

I decided on Tazo tea today as a way to celebrate the life of Steven Smith,
the co-owner of Tazo tea who passed away recently.

Wishing YOU well, much joy and a wonderful cup of tea!

I'm joining some tea parties in the Land of Blog:

Teatime Tuesday
where Sandi is celebrating with an Easter Tea.

Dear Snap:
What a darling teapot and your scones look really delicious! I think your whole presentation is perfect for this week! Love it all!

Ruth W said...

Your bunnies are wonderful! Especially the tennies...makes me think of the Walking Ware china...things with legs and shoes...that came out of England in the 1950-1980s. I loved those! Just darling! Thanks so much for linking to Tuesday Cuppa Tea!

Martha's Favorites said...

I love the cute mug and tea pot. They are just perfect. A cute Easter Tea. Have a blessed Easter. Hugs, Martha

Sharon Wagner said...

I think a bunny wearing tennis shoes sounds like a good idea. He can get me my chocolate much faster!

Deb @ Frugal Little Bungalow said...

A pretty collection and tea...made me smile :)

Pondside said...

First, your header - so pretty. I always enjoy the headers you create. Then the cups and teapot - they are lovely. I particularly like the way the teapot shape is inspiration for the bunny's body - or perhaps it's the other way around!
Finally, Tazo Tea. I love it too!

That is the cutest bunny tea post and mug! Wishing I had an orange-cranberry scone!

Karen said...

Love all those bunnies! Happy Easter to you.

Hi Snap,
Lovely Easter tribute, love all your bunny stuff, cute. I wanted you to know that I received your postcard in the Liberate Your Art swap. Very pretty photo and love the quote on the front. My name is Pat Mark and I live in Tigard, OR which is a suburb of Portland, OR. This is the first year I did the swap, found it to be a lot of fun and am looking forward to my next card in the mail. Have a Happy Easter.

What an adorable tea-pot. Easter is a wonderful time of year if it ever stops snowing here. Hugs, Deb

Vee said...

What nice gifts! I am particularly fond of your bunny tea pot. You enjoy whimsy and beauty as I do. Your tea sounds very refreshing and as if it would be a great perk-up.

Denise said...

Lovely,all of it :) So nice to see the first signs of Spring. I so enjoyed all Your pretties and only found out the big bunny was a balloon after reading a comment-silly Me- Blessings to You and Your family this Easter.Denise......Wait....That's not a balloon, I was right-ceramic ?

Carrie said...

Bunnies! This time of year is so much fun with the start of pretty flowers and bunny things everything. Your teapot is terrific, and what a fun story behind it that it is handmade and painted! Happy Easter :)
