Doesn’t it amaze you at how many different variations of teapots there are? I am sure if you never really looked for teapots you would have no idea but for me it is like a treasure hunt every time I am in a store with options. This cutie by one of my new favorites (Cardew Designs) reminds me of warmer days and sunny beaches. Not a bad image to have when the winter chill is starting to blow in.
“What part of confidante has that poor teapot played ever since the kindly plant was introduced among us! Why myriads of women have cried over it, to be sure! […] Nature meant very kindly by women when she made the tea plant; and with a little thought, what series of pictures and groups of the fancy may conjure up and assemble round the teapot and cup.”
― William Makepeace Thackeray, The History of Pendennis: His Fortunes & Misfortunes, His Friends & His Greatest Enemy
