The Pouring Teapot


Links this Week: Mr. Linky is not being very sociable this week, and anyone who has linked after #14 may not be seen by all readers. I have posted a "new" Mr. Linky at the bottom of this post. If your link is #15 or beyond, would you please repost to the second Mr. Linky? I will then 'try' to delete your original link so as to keep 'the house in order'. I'm sorry for the extra time and effort this takes, but I don't want anyone to miss a link because they can't read it on their computer screen. Thanks so much!

May 18 - May 24

The Pouring Teapot

This week is all about sharing about teapots. Do you have one? two? or three? maybe more? Is it for display only or do you use it for tea? What is the tea server you use most? Your favorite teapot (or is it something like a quart jar?). Tell your teapot story, give it's history, and tell what it means to you. You can share more than once if you'd like. Antique, new, Asian, English, or something in between --- we'd love to know!
Photo above: this teapot was given to me last Christmas by my son, Rylan. He shopped carefully for this lovely little teapot from St. Petersburg, Russia. I love the translucent glaze on it and the beautiful hand-painted design.

  1. What a thoughtful son you have to have giving you such a sweet gift.
    I don't have much for teapots yet, although I do have one that my father-in-law got at a yard sale along with a set of stoneware dishes with leaf prints on it and he then gave the set to me. I guess I could share that one since it is all I got. :)I love all the ones you display here on your blog though. If you don't mind me asking, how many teapots do you have? Just curious.:)
    Well have a great day La Tea Dah, it's a beautiful one here.

  2. Now that was a very thoughtful gift! This teapot is wonderful and not only because it is Russian :0)

    By the way, I need to learn how to teach my son to get me a teapot!! That is sweet that he knows you so well.

  10. I love your Russian teapot, so pretty. I'm sad that this wonderful blog-a-thon is coming to an end. I've enjoyed participating and even more, reading everyone else's posts. Thank you for doing all this!

    Just a suggestion, but you may want to move your badge up for the blog-a-thon. I think if it was easier to find, more ladies would link to it as they should.It's kind of 'buried'.
    p.s. love the teapot. I just love a gold accent on a teapot!

    It seems it would be perfect to drink tea from on a quiet afternoon.

  18. Such a beautiful teapot and an incredibly thoughtful son!

    Thank you so much, LaTeaDah, for all of your efforts in pulling everything together for us all these weeks. I especially appreciated reading your comments as I traveled from blog to blog. You're a wonderful encourager and very thoughtful yourself.

    Hugs,

  19. Your teapot is beautiful, but Mister Linky seems to be having a problem this week. The typeface is twice the size it usually is and after number 14 the rest of the entries are cut off so that they can't be read. When I scroll down to the other Mister Linkys in previous weeks, they all look okay and show everyone on the list. Could you check to see what has happened this week? Thanks.

  20. This was fun. I'm enjoying seeing all the teapots! Thank you so much for hosting this!!

  21. IS it just me or is Mr. Linky hiding the last row of participants? I'm still able to click on the edge and get there, though. :0)

  22. Hi LaTeaDah,

    What a difficult assignment this is... hahaha, just kidding! I am so glad I was able to participate this week.

    I couldn't join last week because the tearoom I know that's in our area closed. I was bemoaning to my husband how I couldn't join your blogathon, and a few days later, he told me he heard on the radio a new one had just opened. So, we will be going there soon.

    Thanks again for being such a gracious hostess!

  32. Hi LaDonna,

    This week's post is up at my blog. I tried posting my link to the top Mr. Linky but it didn't show up so I tried the bottom one and it shows up there.

    Thanks,
