pachyderms on parade!



I was thinking that with all those cute elephant cups I had, maybe there was a more fun way to picture them! Here with my teapot....
and speaking of teapots, one day I was messing around...and around and around...and made the teapot on the left below.  That was a year or so ago, looks quite awesome.  We had a visitor Friday who really liked it and I was thinking "I have only made ONE?" so yesterday...made a smaller one, with a beagle! Potters and anybody else who might care can see the pieces that went into it in the last pic....happy weekend everybody!

Those elephants are precious (can an elephant be precious? YES here they are!) And the tea pot is a winner too! Good to see it before assembling!

I love the way you photographed them "on parade"!

I love the feet on them, they look fun.

I love the elephants! The teapot assembly is very interesting too. I've always wondered who you get the pieces like the lid to fit EXACTLY. I have store bought teapots that don't even come close. Great artistry I guess. :0) Have a great weekend! Stay away from the crazies.

Loooove the elephants on the deck rail, wish my deck rail looked like yours :o)))
Teapot is pretty snazzy too.

The title of your post alone was enough to make me smile this morning. :)

The picture, of course, is beyond awesome. Clearly, I need a job to afford new stuff!

There's nothing like a parade of elephants to brighten up a day. Yours all have such amazing individual personalities.
That is one nice teapot.....like seeing it pre-assembly!
