Teapot Collector?!

    Although my twin and I have collected bird figurines over the years we have always admired our mom's teapots.  Strangely enough we have never been tea drinkers preferring to drink cocoa!  Here are some of our favourites:

They are all very lovely. Hubby and I drink green tea, but that's about it for tea. We drink coffee in the morning.

Have a terrific day Judy. :)

I love teapots, tea parties and (lol) tea:) The last pot with the rose looks so much like my mother's wedding china. I just wonder if its the same pattern. Of course I can't remember what her pattern is called:(
Thanks for sharing these gorgeous little tea pots at Freedom Fridays.

I love the tea pots. I don't collect but always thought they were beautiful. My bonus mom collects abandoned tea cups and I love going there and admiring them. As far as tea I could drink it only if it's sweet.

Nice.....I knew another teapot collector..it was always so fun to go look at what she had and all the creativity behind them. My sister does bells of all sorts. I'm boring...haven't found a love that sticks with me as far as collecting yet, but I still got a good few years left. = )
