It must be time for a give-away! No good reason — just “because”!
I’ve mentioned that we had some interior painting done a couple of weeks ago. Painting necessitated moving EVERYTHING in the kitchen/living room/dining room, and we have a lot of stuff. The biggest challenge was the display of teapots I have above the kitchen cabinets. I don’t know how many times I was up and down the ladder, but it was a lot! Then the job of washing everything. Followed by climbing up and down the ladder countless more times to put everything back.
But a couple of things happened that week:
1) I counted my teapots.
2) I decided I could spare one. It’s a brand-new Hues N Brews 40-ounce teapot (with infuser) that I forgot I had! It’s been in the china cabinet, waiting for its very first Tea Party. It’s pretty cool. It has a basket for loose tea right inside the pot. It has that mid-century look, and reminds me of Fiesta Ware, only in a pastel (if you want the orange one, you’ll have to get it yourself from Amazon!).
So the commenter who has the closest guess of “How Many Teapots Does Sue Have In Her Kitchen” will receive a gift basket including the above-pictured teapot and some other tea-related goodies, and of course some fabric. (In case of a tie, I will go to a random number generator site to break the tie.)
Now, a few of you have been in my house. I’ve never noticed anyone counting teapots. Plus, they have not all been visible at one time. Plus, it has been an expanding collection!
SO, to help level the playing field, here are a couple of pictures I had on my blog in the past showing a sampling:
So what time is it? For the person who has the closest guess, it’s TEA TIME!
Leave me a comment with your best guess of the number of teapots I have in my kitchen. Comments will close at 12:00 CDT (noon) Friday, August 12, 2011. One entry per person. Good Luck!
