Hello and welcome! For tea time today I am using one of three teapots I bought about a month ago. My daughter, sister, and I went on a fun weekend shopping trip and while we were in a thrift store I spotted these teapots!
The teapot on the left is named "Dorset" by Wood & Sons, Burslem, England. The middle teapot is called The Post House, made in England by Wood & Sons. The right teapot is named "Chantilly", by T. Furnival & Sons.
I have been collecting brown transferware for my log home after seeing so many beautiful collections on other blogs. When I saw these beautiful teapots (or are they coffee pots?) for only $14.98 each I could not believe the price! But, even though they were a bargain, I told myself I really needed only one. I don't know how many times I put all three in the shopping cart and then put two back! Anyway, I was good and brought only the Post House pot to the cashier. When she rang up the price it was $7.50! She told me all collectibles were half price today! It didn't take me long to grab the other two! How could I resist? They are so lovely!
I am using the teapot named Dorset for tea today.
The day after I found the teapots we went to a different thrift store and I found the two teacup trio's. I was so excited, I thought they were a match, but afraid not! They are named Sheraton, made by Johnson Bro's. in England.
I set the tea table in front of my Tiger Lilies. A lot of my garden flowers are going to seed, but my Tiger Lilies are making a nice show. I have always been fond of these bright orange lilies with the black polka dots. I remember seeing them in my Grandma's flower garden. I was so delighted to see these growing in my flower beds. I think a little birdie dropped the seed, a little blessing for me, as I didn't plant them!
I don't buy as many magazines as I use to, but I always enjoy The Cottage Journal.
Well, please enjoy some tea time in the garden. Our usual autumn weather is here, warm one day, and quite a few cool ones. Hopefully I will be able to do a few more tea's outdoors before the cold settles in!
Thank you so much for visiting! Next week my friend Sue and I are hosting a large tea at my farm cottage. I'll be posting about it later! God bless and have a wonderful week!
I will be joining the following parties this week: Teatime Tuesday, A Return To Loveliness, Tea In The Garden, Teacup Tuesday, Tuesday Cuppa Tea, Share Your Cup Thursday, and Show and Tell Friday.
