A NEW TEAPOT FOR THE COLLECTION

I am of the opinion that a girl can never have too many teapots! I know ladies that have over 100 in fact!  I just couldn't resist bringing home one of these yellow chintz teapots to put together with some mix and match cups and saucers.......




As I have shared in the past, I am a fan of mixing and matching and my home reflects that.  It really is a good thing because this teapot doesn't come with cups and saucers in the first place!





When my grandmother was living, she gave me the antique pink bowl which I have filled with potpourri. Late note:  I sold many of these Bavarian cups and saucers and plates at my shop! 





Some real dried peonies sit on top the potpourri and add to the lovely smell....
























I hope you find some great tea time treasurers this summer!

Lovely! I'd have come home with that one myself! Lovely setting! Are the peonies from your garden?
