2nd Time Around: Teapots

Jackson 005

Welcome to 2nd Time Around. Please join us by linking a post that features something that is a 2nd Time Around to you…something from a garage sale, flea market, thrift store, estate sale, etc. Please link your post rather than your blog, and link back to this blog. Thank you for participating.

I seems that I’m noticing teapots everywhere I go since I started my antique mall and Etsy adventures! This chippy yellow cabinet is not in my booth (I wish) but in a booth near mine at the new antique mall. I love the cabinet, and can’t think of a better way to decorate it than all these vintage teapots!

I only have one teapot at my house even though I love them….I bought this one several years ago at an auction. It came with another teapot and a couple of cups. I love it because it matches my china with the lavender flowers.

Here’s another one I found recently and listed on Etsy. I sold within a week and arrived at it’s destination on Christmas Eve! The lady that bought it emailed me not to worry about it arriving on time…she printed a picture and wrapped that!

Do you have something you collect? Tell me about it!

Teapots are the best. They always look great in a cupboard, on a table, and especially in use!

I love your teapot, the little flowers are so cute. But I must say my heart skipped a beat when I saw the one's in the cabinet, there is one Hall's sitting right on the 2d shelf on the far left and 1/2 of a Hall's coffee pot sitting right above it, you can see where the bottom half would sit...I love my Hall's I wanted to just reach in and grab them...
Thanks for sharing.

I have a small teapot collection Diane. Several come from England because my sister lived there for several years and would send them to me. I enjoy mine so much. I love your photo of the cabinet full of them!

Oh the teapots are so cool. The green one with the daisy's reminds of my wedding pottery by Metlox. I only have a few pieces left. BTW come over and check out my post today it is a little different.
Have a great day,
Sherry

Hello Diane, I adore your teapots you have shown today. They are so much fun to collect. You should start a collection. However, I do know with your new booth, you are having fun finding them to sell.

I loved going to Atlanta with my sisters to sell once more. Just like old times.

Have a happy day.

Hugs xoxo, Jeanne

Those are some beautiful teapots! Maybe when my boys are older I'll start a collection of something. Right now all I seem to collect are dust bunnies!

You have a beautiful collection! Believe it or not, my husband is the one who would really love them! He is my tea-drinker and has a very special tea pot his grandmother gave him.

When I met him, I couldn't help but keep my eyes open for these treasures. :)

Thanks for sharing them!

I've wrapped some pictures of things that will arrive a tad late.

Teapots are so much fun! And had I seen that flowers one...I'd have snapped it up for my friend Daisy. :-)
