This year I decided to look for dishes for St. Patrick's Day to tablescape with. It was a little harder to find pieces than I expected but I did manage to find a few pieces that didn't look "cartoonish". I'm actually in love with Belleek Irish China but it's so expensive and not in my budget. My best friend heard me talking about my search and that I had not found much and she surprised me with this beautiful teapot she found on the internet!
Isn't it beautiful? It's made in Japan, although it reminds me of the Belleek teapots that are so expensive. It has a beautiful iridescent pearl glaze and appears to be vintage. I just love it! I collect teapots too so I was thrilled to receive such a wonderful gift. I've been blessed with such a thoughtful friend.
I rearranged the top of my piano to feature the teapot and added a green majolica plate.
Here's another look a my St. Patrick's Day tablescape/vignette.
I'll be posting part 2 of my tablescape next week!
Wishing you always -
Walls from the wind
And a hood for rain
And tea beside the fire.
Laughter to cheer you,
And those you love near you,
And all that your heart might desire!
