A Little Something Wild...

My little something wild today is my cute little elephant on my teapot.

This isn't my normal purchase but, this little elephant was up for some adventure and I can see him frolicking on an outdoor picnic adventure with my nieces.  The teapot is marked Dutch Wax by Coastline Imports.  

In my cup today is straight black hand ground coffee.  I bought a grinder and some whole bean coffee this week and you can really tell the difference. Delicious!

The treat today is some wild lemon poppy seed tea cakes made in a sunflower mold.  I was in a hurry so I made them with a lemon poppy seed mix.

I love the cup I have here today for coffee it reminds me of a cafe au lait bowl.  The cups are by American Ateleir and the pattern is Athena.

Thank you to for the sunflower cake/muffin molds.  I can't give you a link to them for the company doesn't show up anymore.  I a not sure what happened to them.
