If I Were a Teapot...

“I’m a little teapot,
Short and…don’t go there!♪

If you’ve been visiting this blog for a while, you’ll know I collect teapots. I love all the shapes, sizes and styles. I use several of them frequently; for I am a tea snob…brewed in a pot is the only way to drink tea, in my opinion!

Each has a special place in my heart. Some were won in the heat of an eBay auction, others are reminders of special trips and a special few were gifts. As I was looking them over in preparation to do another post about individuals in my collection, I started to think about which one most represented ME.

I know many of you out there in Blogdom admire teapots, even if you don’t actually collect them. I thought it might be fun to play “If I Were a Teapot!”

Here's how to play:

By May 31st, send me a digital image of the teapot that most represents YOU, and a short couple of sentences as to why you think so! Send to teapot.game@yahoo.com. On Friday, June 6th, I’ll post them all here. We’ll get to know a little more about each other, and enjoy seeing some new teapots!

You can use any picture you like. It can be teapot from your own or a family/friend’s collection, one you have found and photographed in a shop or even from a catalog. Here’s your chance to create an interesting vignette. You might even sketch or paint a picture of your teapot, if you can’t find "the perfect pot"! (If it’s from a catalog or website, please let me know the information so that I can give proper credit.)

Here’s an example I composed hurriedly this morning:

This is my Frankoma "Wagon Wheel" teapot.

It represents me, because I am a Country Girl at heart!

I hope you’ll all join in! Spread the word, please? The more, the merrier!




  1. Hi Chris, I found your comment on my blog. I am so glad you stopped by. I just came by to visit you and I love your stained glass windows! How exciting to have them done. I also collect tea pots. I will need to post them someday.{: I so enjoyd visiting here! Blessings, Kathleen

  2. Oh, chris!
    That is too precious! All of my teapots are packed up in the attic, right now! UGH!
    The 3 favorites, that are coming to mind are my Noah's Ark, leopard spot, and gingerbread man teapots.
    I wish that you could see them -- they're so cute!

    Thanks for coming to visit me! Your comment was so sweet. We're still waiting for everything to settle down and still praying for our country home! thank you for your kind words of encouragement!


  3. ~Kathleen, I can't wait to see your teapots! Get busy on that post!*Ü*

    ~Julie, I hope to see your teapot collection someday too! And I just know there is the perfect home in the country for your family!

    Thanks to you both for visiting!

  4. I am going to send you a few pics of my tea pots. Got to make me a note so I won't forget. Bye, bye

  5. Hi Chris
    I am so glad that you stopped by for a visit. If I knew you were coming I would have put the kettle on and made us a pot of real tea. We live in the south and they think tea should be cold here! I oblige in the hot summer months and serve it cold too.
    I love teapots too and have quite a few and I insist on it being made in a pot just like you.
    I'll send you a picture of one later.
    Glad to have met you and I hope you'll come back for another visit very soon.
    Hugs, Rhondi


I'd love to hear your thoughts...
