I find the best teapots at Homegoods. Seriously. Where else could you find a sea urchin teapot complete with bumps and barnacles for $9? I love the colors and detail on this one. It even had plates and sugar and creamer sets to match but I just got the teapot because it can stand on its own without needing anything else, don’t you think?
If afternoon teas had started in the Oligocene Epoch, instead of the seventeenth century, we are convinced that evolution, far from discarding that useful appendage, the tail, would have perfected it. A little hand would have evolved at the end of it — such a one as might hold his saucer, while a gentleman sips from his teacup. ~Contributors’ Club, The Atlantic Monthly, October 1917
