Christmas tea


I absolutely love this teapot! I have collected teapots for awhile now, but don't really buy them for myself. It's mainly a collection of teapots from my parents world travels. It's perfect for when they're going somewhere exotic and ask what they can get me. Instead of an obligatory t-shirt or shot glass, I ask for a teapot! So I have wonderful teapots from China, Turkey, Chile and beyond. This one is extra special. It's from right here in Minneapolis. Several years ago my hubby and I went to see Gulliver's Travels at our favorite local theater, Theatre de la june lune. We were a bit early, so we stopped at a funky little gift shop next door. I saw this teapot and I had to have it. It so whimsical, quirky and festive. It seems part elf, part winter sprite. So it was my anniversary present that year and each year since I look forward to bringing it out for the holidays to enjoy it's cheerful presence.

It is DE-lightful! Part elf part-somethingelse, it sure is! I knew I should start my Christmas eve with you! Hope to start my own version of scrapping on this auspicious day!

And, Merry Christmas to you all
