Three or More Tuesday - Teapots

It's Three or More Tuesday again. This fun show-and-tell day is sponsored by Tam at The Gypsy's Corner. Give her a visit and check out all the fun collections.

My collection for today is teapots. Here are five, but I have others scattered around too.

This one came from my Mom's house. I like the old mottled brown glaze and the octagonal shape.

This is the first teapot I ever got when the Lord of the Manor and I were first married. I bought it at a nice gift shop that used to be on the "Miracle Mile". I think it was called Gumps. Funny name, but they had really nice crystal, silver, pewter, and china treasures. Alas, there are no more gift shops like that here anymore.

This cute little teapot is shaped like an English cottage. It even has two dogs on the doorstep.

I got this teapot recently. I love the old fashioned shape and the red transferware pattern. I would love to have a Spode Tower Pink one to match my dishes, but they are rare. And expensive.

This teapot always makes me smile. It just begs for orange spice tea, don't you agree?
I hope you enjoyed looking at some of my teapots. I've got to run now as I have a sudden yearning for a cup of tea! Wishing you Happy Tuesday from Amongst The Oaks.

I LOVE your teapot collection! They are beautiful--I have cookie jars and they are displayed in of all places--my laundry room! Where do you display your teapots?

I collect pitchers, but I'm so picky! The last one I fell in love with, it leaked!

Your collection is just adorable!

I believe this is my first visit to your blog. Your teapot collection is very nice. I didn't set out to collect teapots, it just happened when I kept getting them as gifts or inherited them. I particularly like the red one. Thanks for sharing.

I love your teapots. I only have two I think. I would like to get a couple anyway. Another maybe.
