More Teapots

Hello everyone,
Didn't I tell you that I love teapots? I hope you are not bored with my teapot theme -next week.I promise I will have moved on to something else! We are still working on our 'project' and I am happy to say that the wallpaper is all removed and the walls have been painted so progress at last!
Even though I collect red and white transferware I do have a collection of blue and white also and I love this tea set.

Some of you might remember this one-from Reid House Antiques.
old teapot from yard sale for $1.
Another gift from my husband.
This one is for my English afternoon teas!
I can't resist chintz-can you?
This teapot came from TJMAX. The mother and baby ornament was a gift from my husband also several years ago after the birth of one of our children so it is very special to me!
Actually, the beautiful mother and child plate was another gift from Andrew after the birth of one of our daughters-isn't he good to me!
And finally a teapot for our grandchildren's tea parties.
Wow! Congratulations to Heather Moyse from little Prince Edward Island and her partner Kaillie Humphries who just won the gold medal in bobsleighing at the Olympics!!!
Thank you for visiting ,

You have such a wonderful collection, Carolyn. I love the chintz best but that little blue tea-for-one is adorable! The little mother and child figurine is special.

Hello Carolyn,

Oh my! My heart just stopped! I have been looking at your recent posts of your beautiful teapot-collection and they are breathtaking! My favorite would be the blue and white, but they are all special and very pretty. I could stare at them for a long long time. I think I´ll have to come back and stare at them soon again ;)

Have a nice day,

Hello Carolyn, I saw your transferware on Madelief's blog and it made me curious. It's my first visit and I think you live in a fairytale. Your home and garden, it's all so beautiful!
Love from Holland, Antonia

Hi Carolyn
I am just loving seeing all your beautiful teaots. You have an amazing collection of them and every one is special. I am going to host Tea Party Tuesday starting next week. Maybe you'd like to join in. I know you like to have tea parties.
We have been watching the Olympics and rooting for Canada. Even though we now live in the US we still feel loyal to our native land :)
Hugs, Rhondi

You have an unbelievable number of teapots!
I am so proud of our athletes, Canada is outdoing themselves, I think. Even if they don't win a medal they have nothing to be ashamed or upset about. YAY Canada!!!
