My Grandmother in law has been collecting tea pots, displaying them on a shelf in her kitchen. Awesomely, she offered to give me some of her tea pots the next time I visit. Back in August, my husband’s family and I drove out to Utah to see her for her 90th birthday. I brought home two boxes full of tea pots! It took me a couple months to unpack the tea pots as I had no space to display them. For Christmas 2014, my dad bought me a spiffy new shelf from IKEA to display all my tea goodies. With that said, I was finally able to unpack the tea pots.
All the tea pots! (For you people that like spoilers)
Unboxing. I did my best to pack up the pots carefully. They had to survive a drive from Utah to LA. Unfortunately one tea pot didn’t do too well. That tea pot will become a planter that will watch me murder countless plants.
The first box has 8 tea pots, most of them around 750ml size with pretty prints. The brown one on the right is quite pretty.
I like the the tea pot on the left with the bamboo handle!
The second box had 6 tea pots, mostly unusual shaped, fun tea pots.
This dark blue one is quite heavy despite being ceramic. I like the glazing job in it, the blue makes the design glow.
There’s something about tall thin tea pots that I find attractive. They are probably annoying to clean if I didn’t have the Mandala Tea Smart Soak.
Tea pots with feet are so cute. I like to think at night they go walk around and steal cookies.
A watermelon tea pot! Unfortunately this one got a chip on the spout. I figure this tea pot is more ornamental than usable anyways. I do have watermelon tea I could make in this tea pot!
One of the tea pots from the last box appeared to have art printed on it. The painting on the tea pot looks like the Thomas Kinkades I see in the art gallery on a cruise ship.
Upon further inspection, I guessed correctly – this is a Thomas Kinkade print on a tea pot! Nice and whimsical.
Now all those tea pots are on my tea shelf! I think I need some wood blocks to raise the tea pots in the back to show them better.
It looks pretty crowded already on my new tea shelf. ^_^;;;
Thanks Grammy! Tea readers, which is your favorite tea pot?
