Teapots come in all shapes and sizes. If you have followed It’s Just Life for any length of time you know that.
Teapots can be whimsical, functional, decorative or a combination of all of these. I have found a lot on my own and sometimes people gift them to me which makes them even more special. The teapot I am featuring again today is one that I found on eBay after a lot of searching. I knew they existed and even if it is not an original Wedgwood it makes me happy that I finally found a replica.
This is a replica of the John Wesley teapot made by Wedgwood —made from the one found in John Wesley’s house on City Road in London with the first one being made by Josiah Wedgwood in 1761. This one is definitely one that has a place of honor in my house because of my United Methodist roots which run deep. Please note the prayers on the sides—-I grew up saying “Be present at our table Lord” around our family table.
This is a really great teapot and it pours really well which is the sign of a great teapot in my humble opinion.
Isn’t this just the perfect teapot? I honestly love it and since June is the month when most United Methodist churches hold their annual conferences, it seems appropriate to highlight it today. Have a cup or two today and maybe even say one of the prayers printed on this teapot as you do. Leave me a comment and Comment for a Cause for VeDA – Vestibular Diseases Association.
“As far as her mom was concerned, tea fixed everything. Have a cold? Have some tea. Broken bones? There’s a tea for that too. Somewhere in her mother’s pantry, Laurel suspected, was a box of tea that said, ‘In case of Armageddon, steep three to five minutes’.”
