Tea Tuesday..again.

I'm a little teapot
short and stout,
Here is my handle,

here is my spout...;-)


This is another regular size one.
It is very old.
It belonged to DH's Granny Belle.
Not a fancy one .
It is a cream-ware pot with raised florals on it.
The bottom has a pretty scalloped edge.
The painted flowers look like decals almost but old.
Has a chip on the spout and some crazing .
DH does not remember seeing her using it but it sat on a shelf in her kitchen always.
Wonder if it had been her Mother's maybe.
Oh well will never know that but is a joy to have it on a shelf over the old enamel topped kitchen table in my kitchen along with her corn husk bottom chair!


Please check out our gracious Tea Tuesday hostess Kim's Blog for other wonderful blogs posting for Tea Tuesday!
I know I have loved seeing some of the most beautiful tea cups and other things on these visits.

  3. Hi Lola...it is so nice to have pretty china from family...they are true treasures...sometimes I think little chips and cracks just give them more of the "loved" look! Take care, and God bless!
