You may remember that I like teapots. Just a little bit. My love of teapots started years ago and has kind of grown over the years. When people find out that I collect them they start looking for them for me. Sometimes I get pictures. Sometimes I get texts with pictures. Sometimes I get “pins” on Pinterest and sometimes, yes sometimes, I even get an actual surprise teapot from one of my friends or followers.
They are spilling out all over my house and one of these days I promise I will share pictures of my house and where I have them all
crammed displayed but that is for another day and not today.
I recently went back over to Webster City for a morning shopping trip. The city was kind enough to sponsor the North Iowa Bloggers one day last December and I have been itching to go back so I drug Jeni from Jeni Eats along with me and we stopped in at SOS Vintage again. You may recall I found a lovely teapot there on my first visit.
This trip I was not disappointed as I found a few treasures there that ended up in my car coming home. The first is this magnificent Frankoma Aztec Prairie Green Teapot that I am in love with. Just look at the details on this baby. I love that Frankoma pottery is made in the United States (Located in Oklahoma) with locally sourced clay. That makes it truly American made.
The other item I bought was this sweet tea chest. I am not sure where I am going to put it or what I am going to do with it but don’t you love it? Thanks to Denise of SOS Vintage for snapping the picture of Jeni and myself with my sweet purchase.
