Whimsical Teapot

Hi to everyone visiting 'Tea Things Tuesdays' at http://shabbypinkandpretty.blogspot.com/.

Thanks to Kim for hosting this and be sure to check out everyone and all their 'tea' treasures!

Whimsical "Elephant" Tea Pot

Today I decided to show my elephant teapot. The reason being is that I'm sad because 'Tara', the hulking matriarch of the The Toronto Zoo passed away at 41 yesterday. She has been at the zoo here forever.........she was my daughter's favourite elephant whenever we took her to the zoo when she was younger. She was one of the largest elephant's there and the first one there since the zoo opened up in 1974.

This tray I like to use for a 'tea' if someone comes over, it is very colourful and bright.

Teapot with her buddies..........

Milk or sugar anyone?

Hope you enjoyed my tour of my whimsical teapot. Have a great 'Tea Things Tuesday'!
