Teapot Tuesday

I've been going through some boxes of pots that I haven't looked at since I sold my other house.  At one point I did a series of walking pots.  This one was called....guess....Americana!


Earlier this afternoon we had a flock of about fifteen or more wild turkeys wander through the woods.  I tried to get a few shots of them from a window.  I knew if I went outside they would all fly away.  It's rare to see them at this time of year.  I can only assume that they are looking for food in our snowy landscape.  When they go into full display it's easy to see why Ben Franklin thought they should be our national bird.  They are magnificent!  Hopefully I will be able to get some photos of them when they start courting!


There's over a foot of snow on the ground.  We're supposed to get another few inches tonight.  At least the temps are going to be in the teens, rather than in the sub zeros.

It was minus six when I looked at the thermometer at 6:30 AM this morning.  I didn't do any work in my studio today as I could not get the temp over sixty.  If I can get it up to sixty-five I'm good to go.  It's amazing the difference five degrees can  make!

Stay warm, and din't drive if the roads are bad.

As always, thanks for stopping by.............*s*

  1. Dearest Suzi,
    Love that very unique teapot!
    Well, we did not have frost today but it was cold and wet and I had to drive for two hours back and forth to my therapy. I felt so cold when I was home this afternoon, have a little heater running in my office and that helps, wearing a wool sweater with a wool cardigan over it. Some days the central air conditioning somehow doesn't seem to get it cozy enough. I'm telling you how much I enjoy holding a cup of hot tea on such days!
    Stay safe and warm and I do hope you get to see more of those wild turkeys.
    Hugs,
    Mariette

    1. Hi Mariette....Thanks, I have a lot of fun making these!
      We had about four inches of snow overnight, but there's no wind. Tea and a warm spot are essential for surviving the cold.

  4. Fantastic teapot, I do love it, and the sense of movement! I wonder what the turkeys find to eat when there is so much snow around? Amazing how such large birds keep themselves fed through the difficult part of the year.

    1. Hi Peter.....Thanks! Turkeys are great scavengers! We don't put food out for them, other than what they pick up from bird seed. It's not good for wild animals to become too tame.
