Time for Tea and Two Winners

The winning names for the Valentine Mobile Giveaway are Carole and Lilli - I'll get your kits in the mail this week!

My youngest daughter gave me this beautiful teapot for Christmas. I have quite a few teapots, but wanted one that holds more cups of tea! This makes 5 big mugfuls - perfect for when the girls drop by. Blue and white is my favourite colour combination and I love the swirls and flowers.

This teapot was made in Vietnam, I believe, and was purchased at Ten Thousand Villages, a fair trading company that supports local industries around the world. They have wonderful handcrafted items there. If your town has such a store, check it out!

  1. What a fantastic gift! It's always nice to have a larger size for company, isn't it? Hope you have a great week!

  2. Hi Lorrie,

    Happy New Year (a little bit late).
    I wanted to thank you for your friendship, prayers and kind words.
    I have missed visiting but hopefully I will be back on track soon.

    Your teapot makes me think of Spring.
    Today we will be almost 80 degrees which is very spring like for Az.

    Have a wonderful week.


  3. What a lovely teapot! I love all things blue and white, I love tea and I love the fact that you can brew up five big mugfuls of tea in this pot. It really can not get any better than this!

  4. Such a pretty teapot and the fact that it can hold a few cups makes it all the better.

  5. Now that's a wonderful teapot. It's just beautiful and your daughter did an excellent job of selecting.

Friday Favourites: On a Winter's Day

  Thank you to those of you who suggested this pretty amaryllis might be Apple Blossom or Charming. I looked up both and think it's more...
