Collecting teapots

 What with a computer down for a month, and 6 artshows in a row, I have been missing in action on this blog!
   I borrowed husband's computer and made a little movie about collecting teapots, something I have talked about more than once on the HH Gazette.

The cold months are the best time for pots and pots of hot tea! 
My lovely Daughter in law, Hara, has kept up my supply with myriad varieties of tea.
 Just look at all these tea tins from Hara!
 After I use up the tea, I still have these tins to use for holding flower seeds, beads, buttons and what-not.

 I must recommend to you the very best tea for winter time, if you love spicy, cinnamon and clove drinks, please try this:


 You can purchase through the Harney and Sons website OR on Amazon.
 If you like a milder herbal tea try the "Peppermint Herbal" or the 'Yellow and Blue", it has Chamomile and Lavender.
When the tea is gone, you still have the really cool tea tin.
Next, find a really special tea pot and some vintage cups... it is a lovely way to treat yourself. Oh, and don't forget the book you will want to read as you sip your tea in that comfy chair.

  3. sorry about your computer...love tea in the winter - have a couple of hand-thrown pots and a couple of antique cups (and saucers). Haven't tried this brand, but I definitely will. Almost half way thru the tea my friend brought me from China, so it's time to find more! thanks for the recommendations.
