Top of the Mornin' to you on the blustery March day in Oregon! It's Thursday and time to share some tea time treats! Yesterday, I finally got all of my Valentine decorations packed up and I wasn't going to do any decorating for St Pats....but, I caved! I have so many lovely St Pat's items and I haven't had them out for a few years, so I decided to decorate my tea room.
Today I will be sharing my teapots with you.This is one of my favorites~a sweet little cottage made by Belleek. I love little houses and cottages. This one lives in my tea room all year.
This was my first St Pat's teapots. Can you see the basket weave? I like how it's sprinkled with green clovers too. It says Hand Painted on the bottom, but no company name. It doesn't matter to me as I just really like it.
This is part of a charming set that I purchased years ago at the Expo antique show in Portland. The set includes a cream and sugar, teapot, 4 cup and saucers and 4 luncheon plates. It's marked Queens by Rosina. The handles are all a light green and it just adds something to the set.
This is the lovely sterling teapot the Jimmy brought back for me from Springfield, Illinois. It stays out all year and just changes with the different season. I like the shape of the pot.
This last teapot is made in Japan. It has a rustic look that I really like...more Irish country. I have found a few other pieces of this pattern as you can see in the photo. I hope you enjoyed a look at my Irish treasures. Time for a cup of tea?
