Tea Dreamer

My little oddity in life is a fascination with the egg man. Let's see...if I count the humpty dumpty shaped teapots in my studio...there are 24. I can't quite explain it, he just browns my toast. I love looking at the different ways that artists and companies have depicted ole humpty, and sometimes, Mrs. Humpty too. The yellow teapot is a Lingard from around 1930. I have him in green too. What do you think he is saying?

This is a more recent rendition from England. And if you have a humpty teapot, it just wouldn't be right without a humpty teacup...or 80 humpty teacups in my case because I thought I might want to give tea parties at a children's hosptial someday. OK, I know it's a little unlikely, but I'm a tea dreamer.

  1. Hi ran across your blog and thought I would say hi. I don't think I have ever seen a humpty dumpty tea pot. I really like the tea cups, kind of reminds me of a smiley man in the moon face.
