Teapot Tuesday is so much fun for me to share with my readers.
It may be a teapot.
It may be a new tea that I have added to the collection.
It may even be a tea themed book.
But when I get a new teapot gifted to me by a very special friend it makes it even better.
I received a really sweet package in the mail this week from fellow blogger and friend Dianna who blogs at These Days of Mine. I have followed Dianna for quite awhile and love her blog. One of her passions is photographing the wild horses at Corolla. She is so talented and has captured some pretty amazing images over the years.
She so inspired me that I chose the Corolla Wild Horse Fund for a recent Comments for a Cause.
In typical Dianna fashion she sent me a thank you gift that arrived this week. She had looked long and hard for the perfect little teapot and here it is.
Just look at these details. I adore it and it is such a sweet reminder of my friendship with a very special lady. I am so grateful that our paths are crossed on the inter webs and I am so looking forward to the day when we can finally meet in person. It WILL happen. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, Dianna.
“The very sight of a teapot puts a smile on the face of most people. One cannot help but think of more serene and genteel times. From a whimsical child’s teapot to an elegant English Teapot, to collectible teapots that adorn some homes, they are a subtle reminder of all that is good in this world.” ~ Barbara Roberts

Oh my! This is one amazing teapot from Dianna. It makes me think of my dad and his love of horses. He would have liked it very much and although he usually drank coffee, he would have enjoyed a cup of tea from this teapot. I love everything about it especially the chain attached to the lid. Is the lid porcelain or metal? This one will need a place of honour.
It is the most adorable little teapot ever. It is porcelain and even though it doesn’t really show the scale it is small and not really a useable teapot but it is so doggone adorable and perfect from coming from Dianna! Thanks for stopping by!
Aw, Beth Anne, thank you for such a sweet post! It is my absolute pleasure to gift you with this little teapot to thank you for selecting CWHF for your charity.
And I cannot WAIT until Motor Man and I can show you and Chris those wild horses IN PERSON!
Thank YOU! It was such a special surprise and I love it. I can’t wait to meet you in person as well and I do know it will happen!
It’s adorable. I love how it seems like it’s almost alive.
That horse is jumping out at me! I love it as well!
First of all, Dianna is a gem. I love that lady! Second, that teapot is absolutely perfect! What a sweet and thoughtful (just like Dianna) thank you gift. 🙂
Agree on all accounts. IT was such a sweet surprise to get it in the mail and the details on it are amazing. A perfect surprise from Dianna.
I’ve never seen a teapot like that. It’s absolutely unique and made even more special by its reminder of Dianna.
It is more of a miniature teapot–not really one for brewing but it is really well made and beautifully crafted. I will always have a special spot for it !
Oh, the pretty little horses…my brother and I both went through phases of collecting any horse image. I still have our combined model “herd” on a shelf at home.
That is really fun that you still have your herd together! I always loved horses as well but never really had a collection.
Wow! It is GORGEOUS!!!
Isn’t it adorable? I absolutely love it! Thank you for stopping by!
What a amazing teapot. Dianna is wonderful lady and a good friend. We went to elem school together. What a blessing it had been that after about 50 yrs we got back together. Hope you meet in person soon.
Yes, this is an adorable teapot that i will always treasure because of the special lady who gave it to me. I do hope to meet her in person hopefully next year!
Love the details of this teapot. Another special one for your collection! It’s so amazing to see wild horses. Hard to imagine there still are some around. So happy we haven’t destroyed everything yet.
YES! I agree. So glad there are still people who are passionate about preserving the beauty around us.
