Teapot Tuesday

Happy Birthday to my big sis today!  Seems appropriate to feature a cute little teapot that she got for me.  This one is perfect for a cup or two and comes with a cozy sweater to keep it nice and warm !  All in my favorite color--red!!!  Hopefully we will be putting all of those sweaters away soon.   “She gave in to a hankering for a cup of tea even though she knew that the idea of a cup of tea-sitting still, calmly sipping-was more appealing than actually sitting still and … [Read more...]

Teapot Tuesday

This odd little fellow was advertised on Ebay as a hippopotamus teapot but once I got it I wasn't quite sure if that is indeed what it is.   I got it for $5 so it was a bargain but still---what do YOU think it is?   Maybe hippos look differently in Nepal?  All guesses are appreciated.  :-) She raised her hand to cut me off. "I am aware of your epistolary flirtation. Which is all well and good--as long as it's well and good. Before I ask you some questions, perhaps you would like … [Read more...]

Teapot Tuesday–Bermuda Style

Today's teapot is pretty special. I know that I say that about all of my teapots in my collection but this one really is.  I picked up this sweet little teapot on our recent trip to Bermuda and as I watch the snow fall today I am wishing I was back on that island.  The really neat thing about this teapot is that it has a story. Now look at this signature on the bottom of this sweet Bermuda teapot. Yes, that would be THE Carol Holding. One of the things that Mr. Diamond did in … [Read more...]

It’s Teapot Tuesday, Cupcake!

A tiny little teapot to serve a cup of tea with your cupcake!  When I bought it I thought it was going to be larger than it actually is but no worries---it makes up for its size in cuteness.   Buddy once again wanted to get into the act and decided to sample my tea while I was away from it…..suffice it to say I did not finish that cup. “Dad was at his desk when I opened the door, doing what all British people do when they're freaked out: drinking tea.” ― Rachel … [Read more...]

Teapot Tuesday with a Buddy

It's Tuesday here on It's Just Life and if you have followed me for any length of time you know that if it is Tuesday it means it is Teapot Tuesday where I share another teapot from my ever growing collection.  This week you get a bonus with my picture.  I am always trying to get the best possible picture of my teapots but sometimes it is difficult to get the lighting right .  When I shot today's teapot pictures I had a helper, as you can see. This teapot, I suppose, should be more aptly called … [Read more...]

Teapot Tuesday

Another fun teapot today featuring the color red. This one is the perfect size for just a couple of cups of my favorite tea on a cold day.  The design on the pale yellow background is especially delicate and lovely.   While it is not a pot to be put into service when there is a crowd for tea it is perfect for an afternoon pot to share with the hubby.   The best kind of rain, of course, is a cozy rain. This is the kind the anonymous medieval poet makes me remember, the rain … [Read more...]

Puzzling Teapot Tuesday

I have to share this one today even though it is not ''technically" a teapot.  At least not one that can be used for tea.  And no----I have not attempted to take it apart and put it back together again. I am afraid I would be tea-rble at that.   The soil. The elevation. The climate. The sunshine. The rain. The tea. Body. Mind. Equanimity. Harmony. Water. Tea.     The Minister of Leaves … [Read more...]

Teapot Tuesday

Today I am a basket case.  Or rather--my teapot is a basket case.  How adorable is this unique and detailed basket teapot recently added to the collection from my favorite eBay seller?   I am not sure how well it will actually pour as there has obviously never been a pot of tea brewed in it.  I think it might pour a bit awkwardly but the cute factor makes up for that in my humble opinion.     When the news reporter said "Shopkeepers are opening their doors bringing … [Read more...]

Teapot Tuesday

Today on It's Just Life I am featuring another "warmer weather" teapot hoping to warm us all up a bit from the chill of winter. This lovely lighthouse themed teapot fits right in with my lighthouse themed guest bathroom.  Because of course---every one needs to enjoy a cup of tea in the bathroom, right???  This one came from my favorite eBay seller who has 1000 teapots of her mother's to liquidate. tea leaves tea loves loves tea lives tea leaves tea? never. ~Uniek … [Read more...]

Teapot Tuesday

How cute is this set that my sister sent to me ???  A purrfect set of teapot and two matching cups for a purrfectly good cup of tea to share with a friend.  Come on over and I will put the kettle on and share.  If you are lucky I will make sure that there are no real cat hairs in the brew. Tea is also a sort of spiritual refreshment, an elixir of clarity and wakeful tranquility. Respectfully preparing tea and partaking of it mindfully create heart-to-heart conviviality, a way to go … [Read more...]
