Britto Teapots


My friend Lucy from Luluspetals was inquiring about my teapots. These ones are Peppers,  designed by one of my favorite artists, Britto.  I have a Mary Naylor one in the Kitchen. Pepper's the big tea drinker in this house.  Bryan  and I love our coffee, on  occasion we have tea. Mine is always well steeped, almost black. Also  favored by my Scottish buddy Barb. Who says I make the best tea in town. Mom carried on that tradition from my paternal Scottish grandmother. Try leaving that tea bag in a little longer, or using two bags per pot! Make sure the water is bubbley boiling and see if you don't like our way too! 


We did the twelve days of Christmas around here, getting little things daily. Our traditional purdys chocolate ( it's the best, but I'm a chocolate snob). I gave Pepper the heart shaped teapot,  I bought myself a few   tables for the living room, Bryan got some cd's, new boots, a coat,  I got a scrabble card game called slam! Pepper got a huge crib board for four people, which also deviates from the game a bit. I got a requested book which I'll speak about later, some earrings, and other goodies. All in all we never missed the Christmas morning opening....instead we have enjoyed the season with family, friends and laughter! What joyful time it is, I'm still enjoying my ornaments! A releif from the three months of disarray around here!!!

thank you thank you sweet colorful Sherrie!
I LOVE the heart shaped tea pot!
can i find any britto's anywhere?
I would LOVE to own one! I think i may have seen something similar in a tea CUP at home goods.. can that be?? or maybe i should Ebay?
I am also a Coffee lover Sher.. but tea is my choice all day long.. coffee only in the morning.. and occasionally I slip a cup in during the day. My favorite tea of the moment is Tzao Zen. mmmm
(sold at Starbucks but nearly 1/2 the price at target)
your 12 days of Christmas sounds beautiful! the book has perked up my curiosity! hope you will spill the (coffee) beans on it soon! keep enjoying your balls ( i mean ornaments! haha)
love u to pieces soul sister!
