One of those days when......

Did you ever just have one of those priceless days where NOTHING put you in a bad were just happy from the inside out??? Maybe I am odd ball and really shouldn't be blogging about this, maybe you all have these days everyday...I usually don't but I am having the BEST day. No matter I haven't bought the flowers for all the pots or that the foam I spent so many hours trying to cut for my glider is now rain soaked, or that I have laundry coming out my ears and didn't sleep well. I don't even care that the whole house needs a good spring cleaning or that the plastic we have to cover our old windows with for winter still isn't all down. Wanna know what put me in this mood...I certainly didn't wake up this way....2 priceless friends I have met thru blogging!!! Now mind you I normally do not smile while washing dishes...I don't have a dishwasher...unless you count my 2 hands...but today while I was sitting this up...I had the hugest smile!!!

A while back I entered a give-away....I enter alot of all have such generous hearts whats a girl to do???? I may enter and walk away and think all day what I could do with the pretties... some things just pull at my heart strings and make me want to do things differantly. Like this particular give-away. It was a tea pot. Now noramlly I don't get excited over teapots...although in truth I do have a collection of 9...all from my mommma or granny. This tea pot spoke to me...maybe I felt I was coming down with something or what I don't know but this lil guy spoke to me telling me how fun it would be to have a tea time. After my grandson went home to sit and relax with a cup of any kind of tea. I envisioned myself on my new covered glider in the summer and around my lil fireplace (electric of course) in the winter. This lil tea pot and I were to be good friends. Then of course life takes over and I had to give up my fantasy to deal with probably a leaky diaper or a hungry 18 month old! lol Then came the news...the tea was mine...out of the blue...mine!!!! My pictures will not do it right...he is a fine stately tea pot..strong and we shall have many happy memories together. I owe this to Miss Diann at You must visit her if you are not a regular already. Her common sense approach at being "thrifty" takes the sting out of the cut backs so many of us are forced to do. And her tablescapes have so inspired me to look at my set them on the table nicely... I spend alot of time cooking and if for no one else to please me with an equally pretty table. I have inherited so many beautiful vintage tableclothes and napkins from my mom and granny its a shame to put back for good like they became stuff and really wasn't enjoyed. Maybe I am the good they saved it for. Hopefully it will last for my daughter and granddaughters to enjoy as well. So heres my new lil friend...the tea pot.
Isn't it just a beauty? The handle, top and trim are like a brushed antique pictures surely do not give it the beauty it has. So thank you Miss tea pot and I will create some lovely memories and you will be included in each one!
See he has already made new friends!


  1. That is just so sweet! You brought a smile to my face. :)

  2. I love this tea pot. I seems to me that is suits you and that it belongs with you.

  3. Oh Beth! What a sweet post! I was just so thrilled when your name was selected as the winner!!

    And as you already know, I do believe in using all the pretties that we have. When I use something that was handed down to me by my grandmother or great grandmother, It is like I am honoring them and they are still here and part of my life. I imagine them smiling at seeing their treasures being used by me. I may not have the latest "this or that" but by golly, when I sit down to figure out what bill gets paid, I can make myself a cup of tea in a beautiful teacup that I picked up at flea market for a $1.00 and it takes a little of the sting out of the daily "blah" stuff that we all struggle with.

    thank you for such a lovely post and I am so glad you like your teapot!

    Have a wonderful day!
