The teapot parade. . .

I'm a little teapot. . .
Short and stout.


Here is my handle.


Here is my spout.




When I get all steamed up,




Hear me shout,





"Tip me over and pour me out!"





Do you remember singing this song as a child and doing the motions with it? I do. Today, I am showing some of my favorite teapots around my cottage. Please visit our faithful hostesses for "Tea Things on Tuesday": Martha at http://marthasfavorites.com Sandi at http://sandimyyellowdoor.blogspot.com/ and Terri at http://artfulaffirmations.blogspot.com/
You will enjoy seeing all of the lovely tea things our participants have to share this week.
"A little cup of friendship
With a bag of tea.
When you drink this
Think of love from me."
Wishing you the best of weeks and much happiness, my sweet friends. Thank you so much for your kindness and the friendship you show!!

Hi Vicki,
Thanks for paying me a visit today. I took a look at your blog and all the pretty tea things. Oh, it's a lot of eye candy...lovely things. It's just my style!!!!! So I joined your blog :) :) :) I think I love things like this because it reminds me of a gentler age somehow...beauty in the everyday things. I love that!!! You sure have a lot of teapots etc. Emilie Barnes has a couple of decorating books and you can see her huge collection of teapots, teacups, saucers. It's beautiful just like the photos you shared with us.
Oh, where do you find all those lovely vintage images that you post on your blog? They're sweet!!! Love and hugs, Heather :) :) :)

I found your thoughts about God so encouraging the other day.
Have a blessed week my te friend. Pam

Julie Marie said...

Hello Vicki... I always am so happy when I look at your beautiful blog... your teapots are just gorgeous! I'm not sure which one is my favorite, it's too hard to choose... yes, I so remember that little song, and doing the motions to it as well... what fun we had as children! Love to you... xoxo Julie Marie

Pink Roses and Teacups said...

Hello sweet friend! I love this teapot collection! Especially the first one with the roses, and the pretty blue one! I love anything with pink roses! I do remember that song too. Thanks for all the pretty sweetness!

Snap said...

Vicki,
I do remember this song! What a fun post and I love your teapots on parade!!!

BECKY said...

Oh my goodness, Vicki! If you could only hear me gasping over your beeeee-u-ti-ful teapots!! A couple of them remind me of some of my grandma's china, too, which makes them even prettier! :)
AND, I not only sang that little tea pot song, but I tap-danced to it when I was about 5 or 6! I took lessons then, and we did a little performance on an excursion boat in St. Louis! I remembered the dance and the boat, but I had totally forgotten that song, until now! Thank you SO much for that memory!!

wingedbook said...

Vicki, with school just 3 weeks away I'm finding myself thinking of you, hoping I can do this "teaching thing" even half as well as you did it :)

I've been looking at your posts from NM, beautiful nature and beautiful pics of your grandkids. Glad to see you are thoroughly enjoying yourself,
Laurie

Kathy said...
