A new little teapot

Pin It Now!

First I need to mention that if you are having trouble loading my blog it seems to be a problem with Internet Explorer 6. If you are using this old version it is advised that you upgrade your web browser. Hopefully those of you that are having problems will see this before you get that annoying "not responding" message. I'm getting a lot of email from people saying my blog freezes when they open it. One of my readers said once she changed to Firefox she was able to view it again. Now that we've taken care of that business...on to the cute teapot/cup. This was a gift from Susan, one of my readers. She was out here from Arizona (I think) and went to Carmel and then came to Campbell to see my favorite store, Vintage and Vogue. Unfortunately she was there during the week while I was at work so I wasn't able to meet her so she left this gift for me to pick up.

It's a cute little teapot on top of a cup and this beautiful box of Earl Grey tea! Thank you so much Susan, I LOVE it! I'm so sorry I wasn't able to meet you there!

That is the cutest little teapot and I'm sure it feels perfectly at home with you.

Glenda said...

How sweet that is. Nice for siting outside in our wonderful weather. A cuppa and a nice bunch of magazines, what's better then that ? Oh, and the smell of your roses doesn't hurt either.


Ciao

Cindy that is a beautiful teapot,
so cute,how nice to get a present.
Isn't it great to get a "happy"
every once in awhile. I love blue
and white too,I guess because it
was my daddy's favorite color.
You have a good day.:o)

Hey Cindy: I use Firefox exclusively now for my blogging (and viewing) as IE was not cooperating. Someone suggested I download Firefox and I'm so glad I did.

Just a little heads up you might want to pass on to your readers.

What a darling teapot/cup. It's a shame you missed out on meeting one of your blogger friends.
I am going to check out Firefox as one of your commenters suggested. I have a lot of problems reading blogs at times.

villa extra said...

hi Cindy, sorry for my lack of comment the last weeks, I've been so busy..but your blog has gone even more beautiful and still..whatching your kabinet is a sort of shock...we love exactly the same things!! Even Michel B. one of your favorites is on my list. "Why not take all of me"...a song I can not get out of my head once I've heard it.

That is so cute!!!!

Pearl Maple said...

Beautiful, the delicate floral pattern topped off with the tiny rosebud is an elegant tea pot.

Di said...

re the problems loading your blog - it could also be your Linked Within widget. I use IE 8 and many blogs with Linked Within will not load. I took it off my blog and everything worked fine.

Just thought I would give you a heads up - others have mentioned it also.

That is one charming and lovely tea pot! Blessings!
