On the following site http://gracioushospitality.blogspot.com/2008/03/week-3-decor-tea-blog-along-with-us.html we are all invited to tea. Well to display our teapots, this sounds like fun. The top photo, from left to right, Shows a Tudor theme(Henry V111 and his wives), A Stuart theme (Charles 1)and Elizabethan theme(Elizabeth 1, Walter Raleigh and Francis Drake).I bought them a few years ago, I think there were others at the time but they don't appear to be on sale now.



So here's a teatime poem,


I wish we could sit down together,

And have a cup of tea.

But since we can't

When you have this one

I hope you'll think of me.

Hi, Iabsolutely love your tea pots. They are so beautiful. I have never seen anything quite like them. I love the tea-a-thon. It's so interesting to stop in at other people's blogs and take a look at their collections. I really like your blog. I love to read too.

The English teapots are a very nice series.

Oh my, I have never seen anything like your tea pots! I love them all and being a cat lover that may be my favorite! Thanks for sharing your beautiful collection.

I've never seen Tutor themed teapots before, but I really like them! They are classics and so very elegant. I'm glad you joined the Gracious Hospitality tea blog-a-thon. I enjoyed your post very much!

Mog - Hi! Thanks for popping in to see me over at Esther Sunday! Nice to meet you... love your teapots - especially the kitty one, as it has a whimsical appeal to me! Since you saw the book on my post - have you read "Undaunted Courage" by Stephan Ambrose? About the Lewis and Clark Expedition? It is very, very good. Love, Esther

Love your Tudor themed teapots - beautiful and unusual!! The kitty tea pot, and the blue and white are very pretty, too (I also love blue and white china).
