Ivy Tea





Look at my sweet, little, fat tea pot! She's an Ellgreave Genuine Heatmaster made in England. Probably from the 1950's maybe 40's.

Don't worry. I would never ruin a perfect pot for tea.... the lid was broken...
and she was free. My boss is a garage sale junkie. He brought it in to give away as a call blitz prize. I know... very odd, but I guess he figures different things motivate different folks differently. Funny thing is nobody wanted this little fatty. So, I won her easily. I just knew that she would be darling with ivy sitting by my sink.

The view by my kitchen sink... I'm in tea pot love...

Hi Liz,
I love your fat little teapot with the ivy in it! I used to put ivies in my teapots and I wish now I had planted in only broken pots. I had several pots end up cracked from the roots of the plants. I know better now. They make the cutest planters, don't they? Hope you're having a lovely weekend.

Blessings,
Sandi
