I'm a Little (Big) Teapot Short and Stout


Welcome my friends for tea today. I spent a week on an island with sun and sand which has left me refreshed and ready to tackle the gardening season. After all, it's only a couple of weeks 'till spring!
I had taken photos of a couple of interesting teapots earlier in the year which are real conversation pieces.

A huge red transfer ware teapot that would be perfect for a church social and a blue lady with a pretty dress that makes up the pot.

These are 3 tiny hand blown teapots I picked up on vacation; the woman was doing them freehand so you can appreciate her talent.
My first post and Blogger is giving me grief.  I had to go to the old editor to be able to upload my photos and I can't manage the text the way I want, so this is as good as it gets today.
Please join me as I link with Sandi at Rose Chintz Cottage for Tea Time Tuesday and Kathy at A Delightsome Life to Celebrate Victoria.
Both ladies are hosting a spring tea event on March 22, as seen the right sidebar.

  2. Welcome back, Judith! You have been missed! The handblown teapots are very cute and quite the work of art! As for the red transferware teapot, you've got me swooning here! The lady in the party frock is also wonderful. All your teapots are extraordinary today! Thanks so much for sharing with us and coming by to have tea with me. Wishing you a wonderful evening, my friend.

    Blessings,
    Sandi

  9. So glad you had the opportunity to take a well-deserved vacation to be renewed! Love your teapots - they're marvelous - what an amazing talent to be able to make those teapots - don't know what's going on with Blogger - I think they're trying updates and their having hiccups!

  14. I love the transferware teapot!
    Blogger is giving me grief too. It's been a month that I haven't been able to upload photos without going back to the old editor....and sometimes the photos upload only halfway.

  18. The blue teapot is so interesting! I love anything with hand blown glass so those small items are enchanting to me. Good luck with Blogger. Glad you had a lovely trip. An island....how delightful. Blessings.

  19. Wonderful teapots...is the pink one Burleigh I wonder? And I remember those lady teapots...great fun!

  20. Nice teapots! Glad you had a good break. For the most part Blogger is wonderful, but it does do some strange things sometimes. Even when I try not to use italic on my blog, it comes out in italics. And the other day it was randomly moving around paragraphs of a post draft I was working on. Then we get to have fun trying to outsmart it and make it do what we want ... which only works some of the time! :o) Bess

  21. Your red transferware teapot would go with the cup and saucer I picked up last week at Homesense. I have enjoyed using it this week with my pot of afternoon tea. Your hand blown tea pots are adorable. Did you have a good time? V

  25. Judith, Me again, I forgot to mention that my younger daughter's favorite song when she was young was, "I'm a little teapot". She had her Grammie's flare for dramatic and when it came to the part..."just tip me over and pour me out".....well let's just say, she was very convincing as a teapot!, lol. She was 3 and 4 at the time.She will be 35 in April. Yikes! How does time fly by that fast? Hugs,

  27. They are all cute, especially the red one. I've got the same teapot in my collection and it is HUGE. It's hard to see how big it is in a photo, don't you think? I'd never seen anything like the little blown glass ones. Those are precious!
