"Tea Time Tidbits" Special Posting #9

My husband and I were reminiscing just a little bit this past weekend that it was 10 years ago next month that we went on our whirlwind trip (5 days, 4 nights) to Paris. We celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary (which is in January) a little early and went over for Sweetest Day weekend the October before that milestone anniversary. I remember coming upon a kitchen store--I love kitchen stores...I suppose a kitchen store to me with all of its rows of necessary things is like a hardware store to my husband--one day while there, and this little sea foam green teapot was sitting on a shelf just waiting for me. It was love at first sight, and now it sits on the hutch in our dining area among all of my other tea treasures. It is a 2-cup pot trimmed in gold and says "Yves Deshoulieres" on the bottom which unfortunately I couldn't pronounce if my life depended on it. It's a beautiful, cheery reminder of that fabulous trip, and I think of Paris every time I look at it.

Paris is on my "to-do" list. The only problem, my husband will not go to Paris. So it looks like it will be me and the girlfriends!
Have a blessed week.

What a blessing that you could go to Paris for your anniverdary! My sister went and loved it. Your little green teapot is beautiful..I love that shade of green, and the gold trim is a beautiful compliment to it's rich color. I like the plate and cup behind it as well...a ovely display! Have a wonderful day!
