Teapot Tuesday

Isn't it adorable??  A lovely teapot with an apple on it.  Friend and blogger, Audrey, from Minnesota Prairie Roots, along with her husband, Randy, recently paid me a visit and spent the night at the Chiles Bed and Breakfast.  She came in with a lovely bag and surprise of all surprises---a perfect teapot for my collection.   The teapot is adorable and I have seen this one before but do not have one in my collection so I am thrilled to welcome it into the family.  What a thoughtful gift and … [Read more...]

Who doesn't love a teapot that honors one of our most revered professions?   Firefighters are a vital part of any community whether they are volunteer or paid. Where would we be without them? Today's teapot is a tribute to those who have chosen this as a profession---and a very important profession! Thank you! I drink a bucket of white tea in the morning. I read about this tea of the Emperor of China, which is supposedly the tea of eternal youth. It's called Silver Needle. It's … [Read more...]

Today's teapot is a lovely blue floral patterned one that I got a great deal on at one of my favorite shopping places---Marshall's.  There are always bargain teapots to be found there and at HomeGoods so if you are ever in need of one make sure you check their aisles.   When you have nobody you can make a cup of tea for, when nobody needs you, that is when I think life is over.
