    When I saw the subject line, I was thinking of something completely different.

    Steve, you've sure taken off like the wind on these tea pots. Not only are you cranking them out, but they look gorgeous, too. This one is no exception...your mom's gonna love it.

    Tired of seeing these? Are you kidding? Bring 'em on, Teapot-Boy!
