A pristine pot

After a busy morning of cat pampering, it's time to sit awhile and enjoy a cup of tea in a beautiful, new to me, tea-pot. This, along with many other pieces of glorious pottery, was a birthday gift from my youngest daughter. She found it in a thrift shop in Ottawa and it was obvious that it had never been used. It is a perfect pot with a beautiful glaze, perfect pouring spout, bamboo handle and has a special addition to it that makes it unique.  It is signed by ANNE. It is not dated but I expect it is from the 80's. Our Annie sits next to it and purrs.
I love it's fat little belly which is another similarity to my Annie. *wink*
I could not have ordered one more perfect. Annie felt it only fitting that she model with it since her name is so close to the potter's. It also matches her green eyes.

It's one more beautiful addition to my home.
Time for tea;
in my pristine pot and steeped for 7 minutes.
Won't you join us.
