I'm #1....I get to be the first post on this weeks Alphabe-Thursday because Ms. Jenny told me she likes me BEST! Really that's what she said...Oh that's not what she told the rest of the class....It's because she needs to keep an eye on me so I don't disrupt the class.....sigh....I knew it was too good to be true! :(
This weeks letter is T
T is for Teapots!
Let me first apologize for the photos just as I started my session a huge storm came and it got very dark...but nothing stops a blogger
This is my very first teapot and my favorite
Years ago I lived on Cape Cod and worked at Woods Hole Oceanographic (that experience needs a whole post of it's own)
I lived for awhile in an apartment over a garage with a roommate
She had this old teapot and she didn't even know where it came from. I fell in love with it and used it for tea daily. When we moved on she gave it to me.
It was old and chipped and well loved when I got it
It is a HULL USA Teapot
This teapot was found at a Thrift and was the nastiest thing covered with grease and dirt...but it needed a good home and once it had a good cleaning it is quite charming
More orange-red it is made by Universal Pottery, Cambridge Ohio
This pot isn't in great condition and was purchased at a Thrift shop
I used it as a decoration on top of kitchen cabinets in another home so the glued lid didn't show, it is in Baltimore Green
This Burgandy teapot is the same as the green one but it has the tea infuser with it and no glued up lid
Both of these teapots were made by the Hall for the McCormick Tea Company as a Premium, these colors were most likely produced in the 1940's
This teapot is in great condition!
This really sweet yellow teapot is one I bought at an Antique Mall several years ago, I love the hooked lid
Made by Hall this pattern is called PARADE
This is of course a Fiesta Teapot
Recently acquired I love the color
It is Periwinkle (the photo is terrible, it's really a pretty color)
Most everyone is familier with Fiesta
This color was made in 1989-2006
So this is my T is for Teapots. I used many of these to decorate in another house and now they have no where to live. I won't part with the original green one but the others maybe looking for new homes soon. Still I love them all!
So check out all the other T posts here
