Teapot Tuesday 145

So, should I say we're in for another hare-raising experience this week at the tea party?  I was so excited when I saw this teapot knowing that I had just purchased this stamp on ebay, I didn't really pay attention to the part in Cindy's story where she says not to bring any more rabbits to the party.  Uh, oh!

Yes, but these are teacup bunnies - Rosemary and Sage.  They are of the rare three-toed variety and you see, rabbits are herbivorous which you might think makes them partial to herbs but that is not the case.  Rabbits are partial to almost anything green, but these bunnies know a good thing when they see it.   Sage and Rosemary have a little business going of growing and marketing their own Bunny Toes Herbal Tea.  You know when your parents give you names like Sage and Rosemary you have to put them to good use, right?  They thought they'd have their picture taken in teacups, you know, like that famous photographer who takes pictures of babies in flowerpots and stuff, and use that as the label for their new Tea Line called "for you".  You see how clever they were to add not only the herbs, but the bunny paws too?  You see them, don't you? 

To be honest with you, there is a spoon under the bundle of sage that came from Gardening from the Heart.  The herb in the corner comes from Herbal Expressions and is actually supposed to be lavendar, but the leaves and the flowers can be very similar to rosemary so I stretched a bit with that.  I think this is the first time I've ever used markers on colored cardstock and because the cs color is light, I do like the way it turned out keeping the colors true.  The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes.  The bunnies are colored with my Crumb Cake marker and the rest of the image is watercolored. 

Our destination station is a woman in Florida who is recovering from a hysterectomy and could use some cheering up.  I hope this helps!

  1. That is so, so sweet - what a perfect stamp to have this week. The expressions on their faces are cute - and I must admit I brought a rabbit along too. Nothing like your lovely story, though. I like Rosemary and Sage a lot better than the Anne Geddes type photos, which are a bit too cutesy or something for me.
    I like the two shades of green ribbon too :D


It's always so nice to hear from visitors. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment.
