After a thoughtful alert from my tea friend in cyberspace, Gerri, I was hoping to be in the neighborhood of a Kmart, which my town no longer has, so I could find some of Country Living's new teapot ornaments. I happened to pass right by the one in Rome, Ga. over the weekend, and voila, there they are! I think this may be my favorite of the ornaments I bought.
Kmart really has some lovely ornaments this year, and these are the three teapot designs I found. I'm sorry to have to tell you I paid full retail price ($4.99 each), since these weren't on sale, but sometimes a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do.
One thing that made me even happier about these lovely ornaments? The packaging has those "bubble" type closures, so you can re-use the packaging for storage! Nice!
I also found a vintage Hallmark teapot ornament (if 1980 counts as "vintage") for just $3 at an antique mall.
On the interior is a little chipmunk decorating a tiny bottlebrush tree. So thanks to Gerri and the antique mall, it was a great weekend for finding teapot ornaments!
