My very first teapot...and an award!

You will never believe me when I tell you this. I have never owned my own little teapot. Yea, tea house girl here has never owned a teapot and that all ends right now! Last night when I was at TJ Maxx, I found this simple yet sweet little teapot and it had my name all over it. For my first one I wanted to go simple yet still elegant. I think I accomplished that, don't you? :) Oh and thanks again, mom!

I can't wait to use it!

Also, I was awarded the "Friendship" award from Citygirl over at City Girl Lifestyle! Thank you so much Citygirl! You know, both of us have a few things in common. We are both in the legal profession (she's an attorney and I'm a you attorneys are actually real people underneath all that legalese - hence Citygirl's blog). Also last weekend we both went on a yoga retreat, although in different states. One other thing, she talks a lot about food and I love that about her! If you haven't checked out her blog, swing on over and say hi to her! She's a real sweet gal. :) Thanks so much Citygirl!!

I've decided that anyone who comments on my blog today gets to take this award with them! You are all my good friends. :)

I am so glad tomorrow's Friday! It's been one busy week at work! Next week...just half a week of work and off to camping with the horses!

Love the teapot! I don't have a teapot... well I have a couple of children's teapots, but that doesn't count.

I love the way you photographed the teapot.

Thank you for all your kind comments on my blog.

Congrats on the teapot and the award! I love tea, have a few teapots (one is Wedgewood- very old- my Grandma's) but have NEVER made tea in one. Go figure... Hope all is well- have a wonderful weekend~

Lovely, lovely tea pot! It's great that we can still find sweet, vintagey items at the discount stores. i was just there yesterday (seems like you and I got there a lot, LOL) and found the CUTEST 'lil dress for my baby girl to wear to her big brother's bday party tomorrow. Hey, check out my post today (vintage paper dolls) --it is RIGHT UP your alley!

And congrats on the award, from one fellow new bloggy friend to another!

What a lovely little teapot!! And thank you for the sweet words. I did not realize you were in the legal profession too. I promise I am quite human, despite being a lawyer :)

I think the teapot is absolutely perfect in every way! And it goes well with Quincy's coloring, which is the most important thing. ;)

Congrats on your award and enjoy the lovely teapot!

That teapot is super cute! White is my favorite. It is perfect for your country~cottage.

Well, I have not been able to get your pkg. in the mail to you before leaving on vacation, so it will be a little bit longer....sorry. A Big part of your gift is something from IKEA, which is located in the city and I haven't been able to get into the city yet.

I hope you have a great time horse camping...I will look forward to hearing all about it when I return from the 'Big Blue'. Lovies, Fairmaiden

I love your perfectly simple and elegant New Tea Pot!
I stillhave my first, and many others now too. It is a HALL Aladins Lamp- looking Cobalt blue one. The tea leaves strainer is missing so the lid is a bit loose but I love it!
I hopoe this will be the first of many beautiful Tea Pots for your parties!
