Studio Friday - "Collections"

This is (part of) my majolica teapot collection. Studio Friday was a good reason to take it down off the shelves and dust it and appreciate it again. My sister started it all with the cabbage teapot.

Oh, beautiful! I used to collect tea pots - the cheap kind though. It was my very first collection when I moved out of my parents house and needed to do something that was my own. I don't remember what happened to them...garage sale probably! Very nice collection!

Of course, seeing as how we have so much in common, I also have a teapot collection! Not majolica though. Lovely photo!

Ok so I fell in love with these teapots of yours and have been looking at various ones on the internet. I have to say... my VERY favourite one is the pumpkin....... wow.. it's just STUNNING! I can see why you collect these beautiful tea pots! What gorgeous decorations they make! I could see myself actually using the pumpkin one..... it's just SO ME! I showed my hubby and gave him a hint that I need just one.... just the pumpkin one....so it's on my Birthday list ( thanks for being such an enabler ;)! HAHAHAH!!)
have a great weekend

I had no idea there wer teapots as lovely as yours. Do you use them for tea? They are really unique - I think I would spend hours looking at them and never get any work done LOL
