Mary Engelbreit Christmas teapot

In the midst of decorating for Christmas, there's always some small treasure we're happy to see again and display. Today, I thought I'd share with you this cute little teapot of mine from Mary Engelbreit.



That was a view from the side. Now here's the front:



And the back...



Have you ever seen such a cute little house all decked out for Christmas? I almost wish I could move in!

It actually sits in the china cabinet in my tearoom all year round but at Christmas time, I really enjoy getting it out and using it. It's such a special treat!

I hope that today, you'll be able to join me in relaxing for a few moments, as we're busy with various preparations for the celebration of our Savior's birth. Slip away from the fast pace of the season for a little while and treat yourself to a nice cup of tea, coffee, hot cocoa or apple cider in your very favorite mug. :)

Wishing you a wonderful day and many sweet blessings!

Cute teapot! Thanks for sharing. You are right that we need to take a few minutes to relax during this time. I love having apple cider in the afternoons for my afternoon "tea".

Blessings for your day!

I love Mary Engelbreit. She was my inspiration for many years of decorating. Now I think I am just a more grown-up version of M.E. Although I was really disappointed in her new house. Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day.

Hugs,
LeAnn:)

Thank you! Your teapot is very cute.

Adorable teapot - all the more special because it isn't merely a decoration in your house! : )

I'm so glad you stumbled upon my blog and commented, because I have already enjoyed reading so much of yours. We (my daughter and I) are definitely going to make that white fudge with craisins for Christmas.

Your tearoom is beautiful and I'll go ahead and admit to being jealous. I'll try not to dwell on it though...

Sit A Spell said...

I love tea pots and TEA! I'm ready for a cuppa right now...I do use my tea time as a time to sit a relax a bit and focus on what is truly important. What kind of tea do you like?

the voice of melody said...

Sharon, absolutely you can add me to your bloglist. Thank you!

"Sit a Spell", I have mostly been drinking white and green teas for the past couple of years. I like a nice fruity tea, such as a green tea with strawberries or lemon, or white tea with pear, but often I also have just a plain white tea. Nothing too fancy. I might do a post in the next few about my favorites. Looking forward to hear about yours too!

Chris said...

Thanks for your visit, I always welcome that. Your teapot is so beautiful. There are some things that you get out once a year and you just can't stop looking at it and remembering where it came from. I know I have some things like that.

What an adorable tea pot. Mary E is always great for a charming moment. I have never bought a tea pot but have considered it hundreds of times. Perhaps this will be the year. I do like a good cup of tea.

Melody, thank you so much for stopping by the tea society. The teapot you show here is adorable and whimsical. I just enjoyed a cup of Christmas Clove Tea, myself.

You asked about the Shelite on the side bar of my blog? She is our family dog, Lizzie. She's 13 now but still does rather well fo herself. Your Lizzy is quite adorable as well.

Thanks for stopping by and come back any time.

I love Mary! What a cute teapot. I'm also loving all your recipes. I really don't need any more incentive to make sweets, as they're already my favorite thing, but I may have to try a few of them out. (The truffles will be the first thing I make.)
