Happy Tea Time Thursday! It seems that this Easter season is just zipping by so quickly! Today I am sharing this sweet little Bunny Teapot that I found recently at the Salem flea market. It is very soft and very sweet. It was made by Takahashi. I used to but a great deal from that company when I was a gift buyer.
It was a great deal and I just liked the look of it before I discovered who made it.
This is a fun little porcelain bunny stand that I found at our local craft shoppe. The store was using them to display teacups...great idea! I am using it to show off my egg covered box that my mom gave me when I was in high school. I have always loved it.
At Christmas, Jimmy gifted me with these darling little books by Alison Uttley. She was an English writer who wrote over 100 books. The Little Grey Rabbit series is just so fun and very popular. She was born in England in 1884 and lived until 1976. She was a teacher and an artist. Like many other woman writers and illustrators of the time, she wrote to support her son after her husband died.
LITTLE GREY RABBIT GOES TO THE SEA is a favorite of mine. I love all the illustrations.
The illustrator for most of the series was Margaret Tempest who lived from 1892-1082. I really couldn't find much information about her. The last 5 books in this series were written by another illustrator~Katherine Wigglesworth.
I haven't had the opportunity to read them all yet, but I am hoping to do that very soon.
I might have to have a cup of tea and sit down with some fun reading!
