    Congrats, on being featured as a guest blogger!
    Tea has a wonderful tradition in our house. With endless varieties, it lends itself to any time of day. I’ve been working on a post about tea as well. The tea pot and matching cups you found are adorable. Do you have other collections for your tea time as well?

    Good post on My Girl Thursday. Ahhh, the intricacies of tea. Mmmmmm.

    I like your teapot set. I usually only thrift things that speak to me in some way as well. I want to be a reseller but mostly I just drift to whatever I find attractive or useful.

    Sorry I’m behind… but great guest post! A tea! I’m more of a coffee drinker per say… when I was in my early twenties I dated this guy… his father was British and his mother was Polish… they had tea time in the morning, before noon, at noon, in the afternoon and before bed… His mother also said that she didn’t wash her teapot (WHAT???) because it made the tea taste better… She came over to my tiny apartment one time, and I was so nervous because I had to make her tea… I had this cool clear tea pot that I had gotten from Ashton Green…. And then a few weeks later, she had a gift for me… a new teapot, a sugar bowl and a creamer… totally not my style… but I still have it, like 10 or more years later… I use the sugar bowl all the time to hold sugar (duh!) and the teapot, only when I have people over, like my Mom and my sister… I never use the creamer… lol… Now when I make tea for one (me!)… it’s (don’t be horrified!) usually, but a cup of water in the microwave, zap it, boil and dump tea bag in. Although last night, I “stole” (technically it’s not stole, because it was left in a box for people to take) a bag of Lady Earl Grey… and I used the electric kettle to boil the water. It was soooooooooooooo yummy!

      i’ve heard about that not-washing-the-teapot thing! it’s so interesting to hear about the different ways to make a cuppa … i love the ritual of it, really, and getting to that first sip. i relate tea to relaxation (even though many teas have caffeine) and coffee to getting energized.
