Oh, I almost forgot to show you, another little present that was under the tree from Santa.... Yes, this lovely green tea set is another creation of Canadian artist... Cynthia Davis. (firstname.lastname@example.org )
It reminds me of the coming Spring ... which is only 3 or 4 months away ( ha Ha)..Wishful thinking!!!!
I'm quite smitten by this egg artisan. See how delicately she has trimmed the cup and painted the flowers. The teapot is a chickens egg, balanced on a tiny wooden base and the cup is a pheasant egg, beautifully coated in an pearlized finish. OOPS....The only thing missing is a saucer for the cup. ( Ha ha) ... but then who's drinking from their saucer!!!!
In many cultures, the egg has long been considered a token of love and friendship . It's a miraculous source of new life, believed to possess great magical powers... so it is the perfect vessel for our much loved teatime.
In her creations, Nova Scotian Artist,Cynthis Davis utilizes a wide variety of unique eggs starting with the smallest Zebra Finch, budgie,diamond dove, love birds,parakeet, button quail, cockatiel, robin, bob-white quail, pharaoh quail, serma chicken, pigeon, Japanese bantams, Hungarian partridge, guinea hen, pheasant araucana chicken, tinamou, chicken, duck, blue duck, turkey, peacock, goose, swan, rhea, emu, ostrich, and the most unusual and largest alligator eggs. WHEW ... that's alot of eggs !!!!
I do love the intricate features of these tiny vessels... Take a peek inside ... there's room for a wee spot of nectar.... Would you like a sip?
Emma and I have certainly enjoyed the pleasure of your company today... and hope that you will visit us again soon. We found a teatime poem in our online travels .
I'm sending you love and tea,
To warm your winter's day.
Think of me as you pour your cup,
And all the good things we would say,
If we could be together now
Instead of miles apart,
We sip our tea and memories
The sweet warmth fills the heart. "
