Favorites


I love Callas.
When I saw this one I knew I had to have it ... the beautiful golden color with a deep purple center.


Teapot




When we lived on Galveston Island, we'd go downtown to the Peanut Butter Warehouse.
It was filled with antiques and junk and so much fun.
This teapot was one of the first things we found.
There is no marking of any kind on his bottom.



Toby Tea Pot Mosaic


He has a crackle finish. He makes me smile.
You can see why he is a favorite.

the Chinese Emperor Shen Nung in 2737 BC, when a tea leaf
accidentally fell into a bowl of hot water."

I'm laughing, too, but for a different reason... I think you're teapot looks like a "she"!! Lipstick, a front laced bustier, eyebrows & rouged cheeks...don't you think? If so, then her position is a wee bit obscene. LOL Still laughing...please don't be offended? Its too cute, either gender!!

LOVE the photos of the calla lilies! I carried an armful in my wedding. We don't seem to grow them in OH. bummer :-(
Thanks for sharing yours, though.

fondly,
Rett

p.s. STILL laughing! ;-)

I agree with the previous comment....I think the teapot looks like a woman! Interesting!! And makes me giggle.

The flowers are simply gorgeous. The vibrant colors would put a smile on my face every time I looked at them.

I love Calla Lilies and am always trying to grow them. Love your teapot too - even the slightly risqué theme!

Pat - Arkansas said...

Beautiful! I love Callas, too. These are particularly beautiful. Love that unique teapot!

Frog Hollow Farm Girl said...

Hello from Frog Hollow Farm! Thanks so much for stopping by my post on the Philadelphia Flower Show - I see by your Calla Lilies that you are also a flower lover. We are 27 degrees here today - but my husband is determined to start his brocolli seeds indoors - we are both just waiting for spring to come and stay. Ciao, bella!

bouquet last weekend. . .luv them!

KathyB. said...

I agree with Rettabug. My first thought was that this was a lady teapot and "my oh my, what is she doing?" A wee bit obscene, but most definitely makes me smile.

eileeninmd said...

What a cute teapot and I love the pretty callas. Beautiful photos.

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

The calla lilies are stunning in their beauty, Snap! I can see why you could not resist them!
Your teapot is very much a conversation starter. I do believe Rett was right about her pose :)

I love anything that is a little unusual...the teapot is perfect! And the bright color of the flower is beautiful! Very cheery and happy! ♥

Suzy said...

Gorgeous calla! The colored ones are essentially annuals here, but I still like planting them. I do have a pretty creamy white one that comes back for me.
