For many years I have collected teapots. I think I am drawn to the whimsical yet functional design that has endless incarnations. I had quite a few at one point but sold or gave away most a while back. Since moving south I have have revied the bug and added a few new finds over time.
This beautiful chinese example is very old and in beautiful condition except for the handle which is missing a rattan wrapping. I got it for a bargain price at Scotts.
This Roseville Pottery teapot is maybe my favorite. It has a kind of pumpkin like shape that looks right out of a fairytale cottage.
I scored it along with the a creamer and sugar on eBay and aside from a minor amount of grazing the entire set is in mint condition. I have only seen one other set and it sold for 3 times what I paid.
Another older Asian style teapot I picked up for just $6 at an estate sale.
Maybe coffee is more your cup of tea? This deco set is by famed British designer Susie Cooper.
Another gift, which makes me love it all the more, this tiny camera teapot, though not vintage is wonderfully charming. I used the lensbaby composer to create this post.
Time to announce the winner of the Lensbaby giveaway, congrats to Ayenia! She was commentor #105 chosen via random.org. Lensbaby was so impressed with the response they upgraded her prize to the Double Glass Muse. How cool is that? The system bag goes to Facebook poster, Laurie Ann.
