I'm not tea-sing either—I adore this coy little Valentine teapot! Her saucy expression is quite charming, don't you think?
Now why do you suppose this one says "Connie" and "Gail" on the back? Was it given by both of them? Are they the grown-ups who gave this to a child, perhaps a student? I always, always wonder about the stories behind these Valentines!
One thing I don't wonder about is a love for old linens, which many of us seem to share on our tea blogs from time to time. If you're a crafty sort, here's a package of iron-on transfers to help you create some tea-themed linens of your own. For a chance to win, just leave an "Enter me" to this post between now and 7 a.m. EST tomorrow. Good luck!
