Tea Time



It is a beautiful day here today and I am sharing a few more photos of my teapots with you again.





I slipped in a little bouquet of flowers for you too!





None of these teapots are expensive and some are thrift shop finds.





This pretty teapot came from a yardsale for less then $5.





This chintz teapot came with 6 cups and saucers and a cream and sugar bowl.





This is my newest-a Valentine gift from my husband. When he saw how many teapots were taken from cupboards and displays all over the house for photos, I got the impression he didn't think I needed it!





I couldn't leave without showing you a couple of collages.





Well, that is it for me today but Sandi (a fellow Islander) at Rose Chintz Cottage Inspirations is hosting Tea Time Tuesday again this week so pop in and enjoy. Another Island blogger that I know you will enjoy visiting is Kathie at A Sparrow's Home for another glimpse of life on Prince Edward Island.

My quote for Tea Time Tuesday is Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers for by doing so some have entertained angels unaware. Hebrew 13 : 2

Thank you for visiting me

&

Enjoy your day!

Carolyn

You have a lovely collection of teapots! The collages of the flowers and teapots are beautiful. Thank you for sharing them.

Carolyn, it's such fun to see your different tea pots. Isn't it amazing that there can be so many different styles and shapes? I don't think about that often until I see several side by side. Your new one from your husband is lovey with that delicate ruffled edge around the top, but I think my favorite is the soft pink one with the round belly and the crown type top.
Thanks for sharing these.

Oh Carolyn, loved the tea pots. So pretty. Also, loved the singing from one of my very favorite movies, O Brother Where Art Thou. Thanks for your sweet posts. Sincerely, Susan from writingstraightfromtheheart.blogspot.com

Hi Carolyn,
I stopped by to say hello and decided to become a follower. I admire you for living in the same home for as many years as you have and making adjustments to it as your family grew. As a former realtor, I saw so many families move every couple of years looking for a better home instead of just making their current house the home of their dreams. Your home and blog are eye candy. Thanks for giving us a peek!

Such a lovely collection. Of course we always need more teapots. Husbands don't necessarily understand this type of thing.

Hello Carolyn
Always a pleasure joining you for tea.
I love all the teapots in your collection and think you have one super hubby that would buy you another one.

You teapots and cups are beautiful. It must feel good to have so much choice. You can use a different teapot and cup every day!! :-)

Lieve groet, Madelief

sweet bay said...

Those teapots -- and roses -- are beautiful.

June said...

Carolyn your hubby may think you don't need them, but I'm sure he still loves getting them for you. They are all so pretty in the collage you did of them and the gorgeous blooms. They look just out of an old Victoria magazine.~sigh~

Molly @ Star Cottage said...

Oh they are all so lovely. I am a collector of all things tea as well ;) My husband didn't think I needed all mine either, so I quietly walked him over to the garage and pointed to his collection of tools, of wich he has multiples of and he smiled and gave me a hug and said I think we are even ;)
Blessings,
Molly
