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.

I hope everybody is having a wonderful summer, the weather has been great here in New Jersey once the rain stopped. Maybe there was 5 days in June we didn't have rain. We are making up for lost time now. July has been perfect. Last week I tried to link my post and had trouble. Seems my browser wouldn't except A Picture is Worth 1,000 words. Go figure, it's been a few months since I posted anything on 2ND Time Around Tuesday hosted by Diane. Please stop by and pay her a visit, great ideas await. Today I'm sharing this chocolate pot only one cup was missing and I thought it was priced right even if the cup was missing. A few weeks back I spent the entire day hitting up all the local thrift shops. It really paid off. I came home with bags and bags of great stuff. The bags are now packed away in my storage unit parked in the driveway due to the construction taking place here. But, I know in just about 8 weeks I get to pull them all out and enjoy the "FIND" all over again. The chocolate pot didn't need to get packed it's sitting in my china cabinet looking oh so sweet!. Thanks for your visit. Come again.
