FRIENDS SHARING TEA AND MY "FRIENDSHIP TEAPOT"









Welcome to "Friends Sharing Tea" .....if you have a post about Tea please feel free to link.  Your post could be any number of things - just so it is tea related!  I hope you will join me! You can also copy the button to the right for your blog!

My Friendship Teapot is one of my Favorites !






Patsy Clairmont wrote a book back in 1997 called "Tea with Patsy Clairmont" and one of the chapters featured this darling teapot with 2 little girls on it. Patsy also told the story about how her friend bought her this teapot and then the friend found one for herself.



After I saw this I looked and found one to give with the book to my friend. Would you believe she later found the same teapot for me! If you start your search you may find one too! I have seen this teapot in many Antique Malls around the USA. Probably from the 1950's they were very sturdy which contributed to their survival! Should you decide to go on a search.....this is a perfect gift for a FRIEND!  You will also see another one with sailboats.






I know I have seen this teapot on Miss Spenser's Blog and I am wondering who else might have one?  I have another one which was  cracked so it is in my garden!




I wish you a wonderful weekend and do link below if you have a post to share about tea!

I don't know if you'll see this comment way back here, but I'm on the search for this teapot! I love it, also!

What a darling teapot! I think I saw one of these early this year while traveling. It wasn't in good condition, and it was priced pretty high so I passed it up. I'm glad to know that they're not rare. Thanks so much for the invitation! Have a wonderful Tea Time!

Good morning Bernideen,
What a sweet teapot! I love a teapot which has a story behind it. I hope you don't mind my linking up my tea post this past week. If you feel it is not appropriate for your party because it is a Giveaway, then please delete it. Thank you for hosting and enjoy your day.

Blessings,
Sandi

Hello Bernideen,
thank you so much fo the hint. I always waited for your post but saw only the last one in the preview of my sidebar. Sure I love to join your new tea party. Your tea pots are always classy. I love those with flowers most but the twin pots are very cute, too.
Thank you for hosting another nice event.
Best greetings, Johanna
