Hand Painted Delft Teapot




The colors on this little multi-colored delft teapot and cup (cup sits upside down on teapot) are pink and blue flowers with green shaded leaves.  





It was a dark, rainy day a few days ago so I decided to make a pot of hot tea.  



Here it is all ready to drink with cream and sugar - this little teapot held three cups of delicious tea.  This little gem of a teapot/cup combination was purchased on a trip to Holland, Michigan years ago.  Holland is a lovely little town on the shores of Lake Michigan and famous for its huge displays of tulip beds and, of course, its delftware pottery.

  2. Hi sandy, I agree there's nothing like a good cuppa to give you a lift - but a little something sweet to nibble with it seems to make it a whole lot better don't you think?
    cheers
