Tea Things Tuesday

Can it be Tuesday again already? Weird.
Nevertheless, it is Tuesday and time for.....
Thank you Kim at http://shabbypinkandpretty.blogspot for this opportunity to participate!
Okay, so today we have this teapot to share. This teapot is stamped Nordstrom and came with the box. I got it on ebay. I really vacillated on buying this one. I love it and yet, what does it go with, it's not really my style. I have looked for cups to semi-match and come up with black and then I think, would I really drink my tea out of a black cup? I don't think so.

It amuses me. I'll keep looking for a couple of pink cups to go with this. In the meantime, I'll just look at it occasionally and giggle.

I find it humorous (versus humerus - the upper arm bone, medical transcriptionist ya know).

Onward to my next item for show and tell...

Isn't this little miniature set fun?

Hope your Tuesday has some joy in it today!

Your miniature set is so cute. And your teapot is very unique. It certainly would look good with some nice pink teacups. With checks or even polka dots!

Such wonderful things. I love the clean lines and whimsical look of your teapot, and I think that your little miniature set is my favorite ever. If I were a little girl I'd have a pretend tea party everyday. That reminds me of the popcorn commercial with the big brother and dad at the tea party, and I think this set would be perfect for them.

Oh these are both great. Love that first one. I have some solid pink tea cups that would go perfectly with it :0)
Happy Tea Things to you...

What an interesting teapot that Nordstrom's one is. I'm not a big fan of the color black, but when you throw in the pink, it's all good to me. A list splash of pink makes everything pretty!! Your minature tea set is very cute too. Love the polka dots and pastel colors.

Hi, Valerie,
I really like your whimsical teapot. It looks very French to me. I bet you can find some solid pink teacups that would go with it. I also enjoyed the miniature tea sets. I loved to play "tea" when I was a little girl. Blessings to you and thank you for dropping by for a cup of tea! Vicki
