The Pouring Teapot

This week's subject at the blog-a-thon is teapots, a subject dear to my heart!

Below is a floral teapot which was an Ebay purchase. Flowers are always nice!



I like the inexpensive creamy teapots. There are also many other pieces available in the same style and pattern.






The bird teapot was given to me by Mom. It looks so nice for spring decor.






House shaped teapots are out all year long, as they seem to suit every season. They sometimes are on a kitchen shelf and other times are in the china cabinet.




A few years ago, when we had an interior designer helping us with our house, she commented on the use of teapots as part of the decor, and later told me she had used my idea for another house she was working on. I considered that quite a compliment.


I may have to do another posting this week ....

Millie,
I love your teapots! The one from ebay with the flowers is very pretty. Your creamy white collection calls to me :0)
It is fun to be able to keep your pots out as part of your decor. Enjoy!!

Oh please do post some more! I love the lacy off white set with all its swirls and twirls to its pattern. They are all just beautiful. Thank you for sharing.

Oh, what lovely teapots you have! I especially LOVE the little bird one. It's very unusual and so nicely detailed. It's just wonderful! I really like your 'white' set as well --- very elegant. You have everything displayed so nicely. No wonder the interior decorator commented on your artful displays. Thanks so much for sharing!

I love your teapots too! Especially the ones shaped like houses. I've seen a few of those here (in Australia) but I don't have enough space to store any more!
