Several of you have asked me repeatedly how many teapots I have. I have still not counted although I suspect the number of teapots is upwards of 250. I might be surprised if I counted them all.
Many of you have also asked where I keep all of my teapots. Well, they are mainly housed in the dining room and entry way in china cabinets and on a massive buffet but you can also find them creeping into other areas of the house. I have them on the mantel, in bookcases, in my office, and even in the bathrooms. Right now I have my Christmas ones stored to put out later but my fall themed teapots are hanging out on bookcases in the living room.
Here are a few pictures to give you a glimpse inside my house.
I have a few more stored in the cabinets in the kitchen that are my brewing pots and a few more stored in the hutch bases as well as a baker’s rack full in my office. Yes, there are a few but I am always excited when someone gifts me one or when I find another that is perfect to add to my collection.
One day I will count and inventory them all. One day. But for now I will just enjoy them and continue to share them with you on Teapot Tuesday. Next week I will share yet another one that has not been featured on It’s Just Life before. Come back and make sure to leave a comment for Comments for a Cause.
Though I cannot flee
From the world of corruption,
I can prepare tea
With water from a mountain stream
And put my heart to rest.
