Tea Cup Tuesday



Oh hello friends, Here are some roses fighting for space waiting for their time to bloom and on my window sill this is where I keep a few of my mom's keepsakes so I can see them every day. This happens to be a teapot that was handmade by a local Lake Tahoe artist. The artist and my mom took a pottery class together. My mom was just a beginner but they became friends prior to her passing and she had given her this hand painted tea pot~ Now I have this to remind me of her. It also reminds me that with honing in on our crafts one day we each shall bloom when the time is right~ So keep creating, keep inspiring with time and patience we can make beautiful things just like this artist did. Never give up on your dreams~

  3. I think alot of women 'back when' went to these china painting classes. I have a few plates that my great-grandmother painted and adore them. In the same style as your teapot! The colors are similar as well as the design. Oh, and beautiful rose photo...I bet it smells heavenly!

  5. Very beautiful, especially because of the memories that go with it. As I said in a comment on another blog, I think those things that are laden with memories are the most beautiful things we own, don't you?

    Blessings,

  13. You have a beautiful teapot, and this is a beautiful post! LOVE your blog in general actually, so I've just become a follower! I have two blogs.. one that covers just one specific cross stitch/embroidery project, and then one that covers everything else! I love crochet, sewing, and all kinds of crafts. It's just GETTING to them that can be tricky sometimes!... Enjoy your day, and have a great weekend! ~tina

I would love for you to share your One of a Kind Lovely Teapot with me next week on Tea Time Tuesday! I just love this Teapot! The rose is so pretty! Put it in a vase with the Teapot to make a vignette! So pretty together!
