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 m 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.
With all of the cold weather we have been having a pot of tea is what is in order every day. Have a cup or two today and maybe even say one of the prayers printed on this teapot as you do.
“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’.”
