A new teapot Christmas ornament
Have any of you come across new teacup or teapot Christmas ornaments lately? The only ones I've seen are little porcelain ornaments at T.J. Maxx, and I've already got quite a few of those. They also had some of the cloisonne teapot ornaments, but those are a bit too Asian looking for my frou-frou pink feather tree. So, I was happy to find, at the Fairhope Pharmacy's Christmas Round the Corner Shop, this Old World Christmas teapot.
I love that it has a different design on the back!
And as I was at the counter ponying up for my ornament, I happened to glance up and saw this building in a Christmas village on display. A tea shop! The clerks in Fairhope were all quite friendly, and the one here graciously permitted me to snap a photo.
I've never collected Christmas villages, and don't intend to since I already collect too much stuff as it is, but ... isn't this adorable! Turns out it is from the Dept. 56 line of Christmas collectibles. If one of you would like to buy it, I'll come visit it!
