Are We Walking to Alaska - A True Story

I love a good cup of tea - and I love teapots
 These teapots are in a hutch in the kitchen - when I am at the baking island this is my view - it is always cheery
 Sweet Bunny teapot - great for 
springtime tea parties
 Violets and pansies
 All the teapots are from thrift shops, antique malls or yard sales - except for the Desert Rose - which came from my Granny - Desert Rose was her everyday dishes for years and years.  Many of the teapots were gifts.
 I have several tea-for-one sets - this is one of my very favorites 
shhhh, don't tell the others that I said so.

 I have more teapots than will fit in that one hutch Red Transferware is nice for summer tea
      I have many seasonal themed teapots that only                  come out during certain holidays. 
 Springtime tea
 Red Transferware is perfect for summer
 Autumn brings out the Sears Cattail teapot ,
it is 73 years old
 Scarecrow and Pumpkin teapot 
for hearty Autumn tea
 And for chrismtas - Santa, Snowman 
and lots of holly
The holly teapot can be used on into winter,
long after christmas

A garden tea party 
Every teapot has special memories

I love all the teapots they are so cute. And I could never imagine walking to Alaska, I am going to look for that book. Thank you for sharing on Classic Home Link Up.

A special tea pot makes a cup of tea into something to be savored. I bag in a cup will never work for me. Love your collection!

Rose said...

If I had room, there are so many things I would love to collect....I love your teapots, and always see so many teacups that I love. I really enjoyed seeing your collection.

I love your teapot collection. My favorites are the pansy pot and the violet cream pitcher and sugar bowl. I have always loved pansies and violets, maybe because their bright little faces are the first to pop up even before the snow is completely melted in the spring.

You have a wonderful teapot collection. I have the holly cream and sugar plus a small candy dish that belonged to my mother-in-law. I think the pansy teapot in the last photo is sweet.

The one with violets reminds me of a hot chocolate set I got from my grandmother. - Margy

What an amazing teapot collection! I have always liked the Cattail pattern, but have never come across a single piece while out thrifting. I also ♥ red and white transferware, pattern doesn't matter!

I like the simplicity of the Sears Cattail design.

I love those violets and pansies! I have a collection of violet ceramics, sugar and creamers, candlesticks, little dishes, love them.

Oh I don't think a gal can ever have too many teapots, or teacups for that matter. You have a wonderful collection of teapots, JoAnne. Wishing you a happy day and don't forget to enjoy a cuppa or two; I wonder from which teapot you will pour??

Kay said...

That's a beautiful collection, JoAnn! I doubt if I could choose a favorite...and so nice that you don't have to. You can enjoy them all!

Julie Fukuda said...

It's all I can do to find a space for the one tea pot I have and that is for Japanese tea. Well, I do have another one that belonged to my great aunt but I am almost afraid to use it. Interestingly, it is Noritake ... a Japanese made set.
I would serve you tea if you were here, as I'm sure you would like it.

You have a wonderful and extensive collection of teapots. It would be hard for me to choose a favorite. I do like the floral patterned one (second photo).

What a pretty collection! I love the one on the top right of the shelves which I think is a pineapple - I love pineapples! xx

I forgot to say, Happy Valentines! xx

Love em, love em. I agree I could never pick my favorite but partial to lilacs. I would love to visit you for tea and bagels.

what a Lovely selection of tea pots, specially the bunny....

This is a wonderful post! Thanks for sharing your extensive teapot collection. You have a wide variety of styles. I especially like your holiday themed ones. (The bunny teapot is so cute and perfect for Easter.) I have fond memories of the Desert Rose pattern as that was my aunt's dish set.
Also it is really nice how you visually displayed them so everyone can enjoy looking at them. Too often they're kept in the back of cupboards.
Enjoy tea time this week!
