Teapot Tuesday—Oink Oink

My sweet son got me a teapot for my birthday!  I finally got it when I went to visit him last week in Jacksonville Beach and I LOVE it!!! It is adorable and I thought that I should have the whole cuppa experience documented.  

So with the help of my Mr. Wonderful (Chris) I attempted to show how the piggy teapot works in real life—in the ideal world the wind would not have been whipping around at 70 miles per hour (I blame the bad hair on that, folks) and the photographer would have been able to focus a bit.  As you can tell from the pictures below there is a definite skill to pouring tea out of a pig’s nostrils.   One I did not have this day and will work hard to perfect.  But it made for some great laughs and yes…..the tea was fabulous even if I did lose half of it in the pouring!! Enjoy!  And thank you, Micah!  I love it!

  6. it is adorable!! I have this little do-hickey thing that you place in the spout and then the tea never drips. I do believe “do-hickey” is the official name. 🙂
