And/or, perfectly acceptable goods with which to lavish me for Valentine’s Day:

“Alice’s Tea Party” limited edition print, $55, via kjsdesign on Etsy

Sterling silver teapot necklace, $60, via ballandchain on Etsy

White porcelain teapot, $85, via New Moon Studio on Etsy


Mice having tea card, $4.50, via Foxy & Winston on Elsewares

Awesome porcelain teapots? You can find them at Teresa Chang’s site. They’re elegant, simple, and if they weren’t $400 and up, I would buy the lot. Chang studied under Ah Leon, who isn’t a shabby teapottist himself (evidenced by the provocative urn-like pot pictured here).

I’d like to start doing some ceramics, but if my little pinch-pots from seventh grade are any indication of my skill, I’ll never rival these beauties … that said, I have thought about signing up for a course at Brickhouse Ceramic Art Center in Long Island City. Hrm.
