Fun teapots come my way all of the time but then again it makes sense since I seem to search them out. I receive a lot of teapots as gifts when people find one that they think I would like. I love that so many of my teapots have come from friends who think of me when they see that “perfect” one.
Recently a few of the North Iowa Bloggers and I hit up the local thrift shop for some bargains and great finds. Donna of donnahup.com needed some props for an upcoming church event so thrift store shopping was on the agenda after our monthly Social Media Breakfast. We stopped at the recently opened Salvation Army thrift shop located at 757 Village Green Dr SW. It is clean and well organized and we all had a lot of fun looking around. We might have giggled a bit too much because we were told twice during our brief time in the store that we “were having too much fun”. I don’t think you can ever have TOO much fun, do you?
We found a lot of great items.

But then I found a cute teapot nestled amongst the glassware with the ticket price of $2.00. Now that is a bargain for anything these days let alone a teapot with character like this one has. I think you will agree that this one is a winner from start to finish.It is in perfect condition with no chips or cracks and has such stunning graphics on it that it caught my eye. Don’t you just love that pigtailed little girl?
The perfect teapot for a chilly afternoon pot of tea, don’t you think? I love the whimsical quality to this one and know it is going to be a favorite among my readers as well.
Cynthia came in quietly and set a cup of tea before him. He kissed her hand, inexpressibly grateful, and she went back into the kitchen. When we view the little things with thanksgiving, even they become big things. –
