Do you think this is enough teapots?

That's not even all of them. I couldn't fit them in one picture, my kitchen counters won't let me go back that far. I actually have 17 on display right now. I just put them up this afternoon. I have at least one or two more that are in the garage. I might even find more out there that I didn't know of.

That is nowhere near enough teapots. A lady MUST have a teapot for every occasion. And she can never ever use the same teapot twice in the same year, otherwise it would cause scandal!

Damn right. Now if only my boyfriend could understand this. Then again, if he can't I suppose I can replace him with a new one who understands the fine art of tea.... though I am converting him.

I love teapots so I think these look fantastic!

Me too, obviously. About half were inherited, but still awesome

I think the fact that they were inherited adds more of a "classic" feeling to them - though they have quite a bit already :) Lovely

No such thing as too many tea pots :)

Ooh! I'd love to have a fun collection of teapots like that one day.

I just got myself two infuser mugs yesterday. I'm pretty excited about that. I've been drinking Earl Grey this week like it's going out of style.

I'm rather fond of PG Tips, but Twinings Lady Grey is lovely. My boss gave me a wonderful white peach tea because she doesn't rink hot tea during the summer.

A good portion of those are inherited since I got everything in the house. That doesn't mean I wouldn't eventually have collected that many myself.

I've actually been thinking about trying the Lady Grey. I'm glad you mentioned it. I'll definitely have to now. :D

Hee, cute! So you've been keeping this teapot hoarding habit a secret, huh? ;)

It tends to happen. Part of them were my gran's. They came with the house. Some have been mine for years, and others are new acquisitions.

Ah, yeah my perfume bottle collection started like that. My grandmother had an impressive collection of Avon bottles displayed on her wall.

I wasn't fond of the display my gran had up. Then I realised just how many teapots I had about the house.... Viola! Teapot Display!
