Teapot

How very genteel!
A solid silver teapot!
Ladies! Gossip time!

If you would like to participate in this challenge then you can use any aspect of the household item for an inspiration. “Teapot” could be the teapot itself, its materials, the style, where it came from, its sentimental associations…be creative! It does not have to be a valuable teapot…metal, pottery, glass or whatever is about at home.

If you are participating please add your contribution as a link to your post in the comment section and add “TJ’s Household Haiku Challenge” to your tag list on your own post so others can find you! Just click on the speech bubble at the end of this post to access comments.

About the objects: The teapot is an English hallmarked sterling silver teapot from the 1850s. The teacups, sugar basin and jug are example of H and R Daniels porcelain, a rare maker of English porcelain in the Regency into the very early Victorian period. All the teawares are hand painted with flowers and sea shells.

  1. Your photos are always so pretty and inviting! I don’t own a teapot or anything tea-related, we’re coffee guzzlers, but you make me want to steep some tea!

    1. Years of collecting has meant that I have a good assortment of stuff to set up some fun shots. If you would like to write a Haiku on a coffee pot that would be great too! Its all about just having some fun. Best wishes for a relaxing Sunday 🙂
