Tea Things Tuesday

It's Tuesday and time for tea things hosted by Kim at Thank you Kim!!
Today I am going to share my Crate and Barrel teapot that I actually got at...Crate and Barrel!

It is white, very plain, and yet...

It has a wonderfully smooth texture, light bounces off it, it can survive the dishwasher, and it goes with pretty much everything. I have probably used this teapot the most. It seems to be just the right size too, medium.
So after my plain white teapot I decided to also share this cute little decorative teapot. Now this I did not get at Crate and Barrel, I ran across this at a thrift store and it was in perfect condition. I don't think it had ever really been used or displayed.

It's made to look like there are holes and chips and the little animals have made themselves at home. See the squirrel swinging on the handle?

I thought it was just awfully cute.
Happy Tuesday!

Both teapots are wonderful, Valerie! I love the plain makes a statement that says "I am comfortable with me"...does that make sense? And the whimsical one is just too cute...that was quite a find at a thrift store! Really enjoyed seeing both of them!

Hi, Valerie,
I always love to stop by on Tuesdays to see what pretties for tea you have. I love the white teapot. It is very elegant!! I, too, love the way the light bounces off of it. The Peter Rabbit teapot/candle display is adorable. Of course, you know I love bunnies. Thanks for sharing everything with us! Happy Teacup Tuesday. Vicki

Such a contrast in teapots today Valerie. I love them both. The simplicity of the white tea set is lovely and it's great that you can use any teacup with it and they will go together.

And that tea light teapot is just the cutest. What a perfect piece to have displayed at Easter time with all the cute little bunnies!!

Have a great week Valerie.

Hello, Happy Tea Things Tuesday!! I like both of your cute teapots. I have one just like the white one, but mine is probably smaller than yours. I love the one with the little animals playing all over it.

I have the white teaset and dinnerware. These can all be used for so many different occasions!

Very pretty. I saw several teapots while I was out yesterday but I managed to pass them by. Must exercise self control. :-)
