Teatime Tuesday on the Front Porch

It is once again time to enjoy Barb at Grits and Glamour for her Teatime Tuesday party. Barb is on vacation, but being the gracious hostess that she is, she is still holding this event. In fact, you have a wonderful tour of her party this week as she holds a virtual tea party with decadent looking desserts and beautiful china. This is surely on of the best parties that I have attended.

So, let's move on and take time to

I love tea and have always admired teapots, but have never had one. I used a teakettle to make hot tea. After joining blogland lately, I decided that I HAD to have a teapot or two. I am not into frilly or froo froo things. Don't get me wrong, I love these things, but they are just not me. I love dishes and glassware, but I am more of a homestyle girl. So, while looking for teapots, I kept this in mind.

I set out over the weekend looking for something to use so that I could participate in this event today. I first found a cute little off-white teapot that I practically stole. It was just calling, "Take me home" and I did. But, I haven't had inspiration yet in how to use it or which dishes to pair up with it. So, the hunt continued. I actually bought 4. None of them are fancy or expensive, but they each spoke to me.

I decided to go with the more whimsical one for my first ever blog teatime.

I also found that cute little sign above while I was shopping and just had to have it, too.

I just somehow liked the look of this little teapot. It is nothing special, but something that I instantly liked. Maybe, it is the color.

Here is a close-up of it.


I hope you enjoyed by little teatime today. The tea was great,
but I really have to get busy and do some baking before the next event. I attended the funeral of a favorite uncle yesterday, so this little time for me was very welcome today.

Please be sure to go to Barb's site to view her virtual teatime and access the links to all the other parties.

Thanks for stopping by my blog.
