I have one of the best husbands in the world — hands down. Today’s teapot has a story as do most of the teapots in my collection.
5 years ago in August my father in law passed away. I had been splitting my time between Ohio and Iowa in an effort to help out with his care and with my brother in law Carlton. Chris and I were able to move back into the family house for about 5 months after his death to take care of things but before we did that we had a little getaway to Chicago on the way home to Iowa.
It wasn’t a big trip but just a stop over for a couple of nights to kind of reset ourselves and prepare for what was ahead. We did some sightseeing and a little shopping and with that shopping came a teapot.
This one is most likely my most expensive teapot in my collection . I know it at least has carried the most expensive price tag.
Isn’t it a beauty? I have shared it before but it is worth sharing again, don’t you think?
I have not brewed a single pot of tea in this one yet and it resides in the china cabinet that Chris’s dad refinished which seems fitting. One of these days I will brew a pot and say a toast to my father in law in a fitting manner.
