Today's Singalong: "I'm a Lidless Teapot"


I'm a lidless teapot

Short and stout

Here is my handle

Here is my spout

On the top there's something I'm without

But do like Linda of Friendship Tea says and buy me anyway (especially if I'm just $5) and do not doubt!

*Today's blog post was inspired by Linda J.'s March 6 post titled "Teapot Without A Lid." Since it's still a little early to plant anything outside, I've been playing around with a few houseplants, and I can't help noticing that Linda's recommendation is both a pretty and a thrifty means of displaying plants!

What a pretty teapot. I haven't seen one like this with such a nice shape (love the little feet) and the look of tole painting. I like to put African violets in my lidless pots, too. Nice photos.

Love your "lidless teapot". It is so pretty! What a great idea to use as a planter.

What a very pretty teapot and a good use for it too. Definitely worth $5.

Just discovered your blog, and I enjoyed reading it. The teapot which you show here looks handpainted. Do you have any information about it?

Another way to use a lidless teapot is as a flower vase. Seven or eight roses look absolutely beautiful when arranged in a teapot. I have a blue and white patterned lidless teapot that I just love, and when I fill it with roses from my garden, it cheers up the entire room!

That is a beautiful lidless teapot! I can see why you didn't pass it up!

Ginny, welcome, and thanks for reading! I checked the bottom of this teapot, but as I thought, this one is completely unmarked. Wish I knew more about it though, because I'd *love* to know what sort of lid it originally had!
