A spot of tea

Today I'd like to share this cute vintage tea pot I found a few weeks ago at a local thrift shop. I haven't been JUNKIN' since. It's been well over a month since the last time I went junkin'. I feel as if the world of vintage cast offs is passing me by! If I did have some extra time right now to go shopping I don't have the storage space. Well, I do have the storage unit in the driveway( hummm that's a thought) but, that is packed with everything that was downstairs. Maybe I could find a little room in there!
So, back to this very PINK little Tea Pot. The roses are hand painted ( I think) and the overall condition is in good shape. There is some crazing but, I like that on old china I feel that's what tells the story of time. I wonder how many afternoon teas where poured from this PINK pot? and how many good stories were told? I wish for days like that, the kind of days where we can just pour out all our troubles and have them "fixed" from a simple cup of tea.
Once we are back to normal around here I have an antique tea cart project waiting for me. The tea cart, this tea pot and my tea cups will make a very cute vignette. I'm thinking about doing a mosaic on the tea cart...
Enjoy PINK Saturday please visit Beverly at How Sweet the Sound and all the other lovely bloggers posting PINK.

Your teapot is lovely. I miss when I can't go looking around thrift stores. I went today, and enjoyed looking and looking. The hunt is my favorite part.
