Everyone seems to know about my love of teapots. Imagine that! I guess my Teapot Tuesday posts have kind of given that away, right? I have people that send me pictures of fun teapots they find on their travels. It is very fun to see what everyone comes up with and what teapot finds they send my way.
A week or so ago I was out running errands and I got a message from fellow blogger (and upcoming Chicago trip companion) Loni who has a fun blog at Lifestyles of the Pantsless. She said she was at a garage sale and there were teapots–lots of teapots. Even better the proceeds of the garage sale were going to Children’s Miracle Network (I think). So she texted me the address and since I was out anyway driving around I stopped by.
The one that caught my eye happened to be this cute set which actually has a music box in the base of the teapot. It is the second teapot that I have that is musical—how fun is that? It plays music when you pick it up if the music box is wound up. I think it was a great find and I am thankful to Loni for taking the time to let me know that there were teapots afoot in Mason City.
Sweet little teapot set, don’t you think? I love it. Happy Teapot Tuesday everyone.

What a delightful find !
It really is! Thank you, Carl!
Did you limit yourself to purchasing one teapot at this sale? I’m in your band of friends who can’t see a teapot now without thinking of you.
Let me guess… It plays “tea for two” doesn’t it?
Cute! I have an old teapot that also is musical which I picked up at an estate sale years ago. I love it.
Oh neat. Don’t you love estate sales? Some of the best finds there.
Thank you! And thanks for stopping by!
I can just imagine how nice it would be to have a teapot that sang for you while you are enjoying your tea.
It is a very sweet little pot.
A very lovely teapot !!!
Thank you, Laura!
It is a great find, especially with the cream and sugar to match and tea cups!! What song does it play? I also love the quote and will use it. Perfect for me being away from my tea drinking friends. (Although I am making some new ones here)
I have to go pick it up again to hear the song—-I honestly can’t remember but it wasn’t Tea for Two!
oh how unique!! this would be so perfect for my girls and their tea parties. they’d be picking up the teapot constantly to hear the music. 🙂
I love the design
It is pretty cute and I love the little plates and cups that come with it.
I love it.
Cute! It is only fitting that you purchase every last homeless teapot in Iowa before you move away. 😉
I think so, too!
I don’t know how you store all those teapots! And how are you going to move all of them?
