I'm a Little Teapot

Every time you come to visit I usually ask if you have time for a cup of tea. So today I thought I'd show you a few of the teapots I've collected. As I was taking the pictures I remembered the little song I sang as a child:

I'm a little teapot short and stout
Here is my handle
Here is my spout
When I get all steamed up
Then I shout
Just tip me over and pour me out.
t had actions to go with it. Do you remember that song too?

This first teapot is a fun design by Mary Engelbreit. I love black and white checks and black and white dots, which is what attracted me to this one. The little pink rosebud handle on the lid is cute too.This one is a teapot and teacup all in one unit. The little handle on the lid is a lemon. It's just big enough for one cup of tea. This is what it looks like when it's apart. I love the little a checked cloth design looking like it's draped on the top.
I would never use this pumpkin for tea. It just wouldn't make a good cup and would drip when I would try to pour. But it's cute and looks nice on a shelf.

This one of beets is fun too, also just for decoration.
I love the blue (of course) and I thought the black and white was a great contrast against the blue. This teapot goes with everything I have so I move it around a lot!
I saved the best for last. This old yellow teapot is much bigger than the others and holds about 8 cups . There are no markings on it. It's probably from the 30's or 40's, could be Hull. it is such a nice strudy heavy pot and I like to use it for a casual tea with muffins and mugs.So those are a few of my teapots. I'm sorry I can't ask you in today but my sister is coming for a visit and I've got to get dinner ready. They'll be very hungry after a full day's drive. I already know what I'll be thankful for tomorrow!

Thanks for stopping by. Next time we'll have more time to chat.
