                                                           An Invitation to Tea

                She is absolutely gorgeous and the perfect doll for today's tea theme!!

Every time I see a new "Anna" creation, I feel like I want to sit down and create one of my own!!

 She is made of paperclay, a medium I have been dying to try. I used to sculpt with Sculpy, 15 or 20 years ago. Not like this tho' !   Hmm, maybe a trip to the craft store is in order...... LOL


             for some BEYOND FABULOUS TEAPOTS- check out this contest!!!!! 

                I am drooling and suffering SEVERE teapot envy after looking at each and every one of these artisan created teapots!

But, TEA is a very good and soothing thing!! And, it is Tuesday!

 So, out comes my slightly more mundane teapot, as I am brewing some fresh ginger tea!

Have a cup on me, enjoy looking thru' the above links at Anna's wonder-full dolls and the equally wonder-full teapots.

 Last, but not least, drop by Patty and Kim for a list of other tea lovers.


Countdown to Mountain Meadows Quilters Retreat 2012 - don't miss out !


  1. What a beautiful doll. I will surely check out those links. And that tea pot! Wow! Gorgeous. Happy tea day and I'm glad you stopped in today. :)

  2. The doll is gorgeous and perfect for tea day. The teapot is a real winner! Thanks for the links! Happy Tea Day!

  3. I'm not a big doll fan, but this one is amazing. Such detail.

    I fell in love with the tea pots. Did you notice the glaze on some of those? They are incredible. I fell in love with the bird, and of course, got a laugh out of the one shaped like a tea cup with smaller cups inside. I'd have trouble keeping the water in the round E and F pot hot, though (grin). The one with ceramic shaped like wood coming out of what looked like a chicken feeder was a lot of fun, and I have a friend who would DIE for the zebra.

    Have a super tea today, because these tea pots sure brightened My day!

  4. Paperclay = WOWEE! gorgeous and such delicate fingers too

    any tea would taste better in a pretty tea pot like that!

    Happy T to ya Pat

  5. I have never tried paper clay before - you will have to tell us all about it! beautiful art doll - she is timeless! and the teapot is too - amazing!

    Happy Tuesday!

  7. Hello, again!
    The teapot is just stunning! Where did you find it?
    What is it made of? Metal? Pottery?
