It’s been a week of snow fall here in the Western North Carolina mountains. That means I need to bring out the snowman teapot that has become my go to for snow days.
I just love how cheery he looks and that cardinal on top is the perfect way to top off that top hat. Every time I look at this guy he makes me smile.
Is it snowing where you are? I will post pictures later in the week of our snowfall –hoping we keep our electricity on and that there are no major issues but we are armed with lots of books, candles, flashlights, coolers and a grill to cook and heat anything that we need. Life is good here in the mountains. How is life with you?
“Perhaps there can be too much making of cups of tea, I thought, as I watched Miss Statham filling the heavy teapot. Did we really need a cup of tea? I even said as much to Miss Statham and she looked at me with a hurt, almost angry look, ‘Do we need tea? she echoed. ‘But Miss Lathbury…’ She sounded puzzled and distressed and I began to realise that my question had struck at something deep and fundamental. It was the kind of question that starts a landslide in the mind. I mumbled something about making a joke and that of course one needed tea always, at every hour of the day or night.” ~ Barbara Pym
