The final selection in my mini vegetable teapot line from Avon is what I am featuring today. Obviously this little guy is too small to brew in and the warning on the bottom of the pot is a clue that this line was meant to be decorative only. I love the rich color of this little guy and the lid is topped off with some pretty intricate blossoms. While I am not a lover of eggplant (too squash like for me—remember my aversion to all things squash as well as cooked carrots?) this one makes me smile.
It really is even better in real life, trust me. I am learning how to use my new Square lighting kit and have not had a lot of time to play around with it so I am still learning. I think when I perfect using it I will have much better photos but for this week these will just have to do.
“Perhaps there can be too much making of cups of tea, I thought, as I watched Miss Statham filling the heavy teapot. Did we really need a cup of tea? I even said as much to Miss Statham and she looked at me with a hurt, almost angry look, ‘Do we need tea? she echoed. ‘But Miss Lathbury…’ She sounded puzzled and distressed and I began to realise that my question had struck at something deep and fundamental. It was the kind of question that starts a landslide in the mind. I mumbled something about making a joke and that of course one needed tea always, at every hour of the day or night.”
