“Blue Wellie Snoozer” from the “A Cup Of Tea & A Lie Down” series

This wee snoring Fantail (Piwakawaka) perches on the side of an original Kiwi rendition of the Blue Willow tea sets so many of us grew up with. 

Instead of the very oriental themed images on the Blue Willow cup, “Blue Wellie” has icons of Wellington NZ – the Beehive and Parliament Buildings. A Kereru swoops in the air above Kowhai trees and Manuka flowers. 

Remember those shimmery silky tablecloths with the floral print? If anyone spilt something greasy (think 1970’s roast meat gravy) Mum would shoot you a look that could kill! 

The Blue Willow tea set only ever came out on special occasions and as a kid you knew that the likelihood of cake was very high on those days.
