Celebrate Friendship.... day 2 of the sneaks!

Sitting and sipping tea with a friend, there's really nothing like that quiet time, just visiting and enjoying the company of a friend you hold dear. And, that is what this latest set being released is all about!

Introducing....

This set drawn by Flourishes illustrator Lauren Pope is full of classy and classic images that take tea time to a whole new level! These tea pots were drawn based on Flourishes' owner Jan Marie Caruso's own personal teapot collection. One is Asian inspired. The other looks like a tea service used only at high tea, complete with silver tray. So, hop on over and see what kind of creativity is steeping over at our different designer's blogs!

Now to the winner of yesterday's From the Garden set! Random.org drew the number 7, which means Paula is our lucky winner!

This is so gorgeous! And I love the fact that the images are inspired by Jan Marie`s own teapot collection! Brilliant.

I have always loved tea pots and fancy tea cups. Making a pot of tea for yourself and another indicates you are about to sit down, and have a long sincere conversation. Meaningful communication is about to happen. Don't know where Iget this idea but just always think this when brewing us some. I am sooo glad to see such a nice representation of this special time!

I have been looking for a beautiful tea pot and cups for the last 3 years. They are so me, as I have a collection of tea pots from all over the world. Full size, mini, if it is new to me I have to buy it. So this set is so me, if I don't win I cannot wait to order. Great job ladies, love, love, love it.

LeaAnn said...

I absolutely adore these teapots! I have many, many happy memories of sitting with my English Auntie and Nanny as a child, sipping tea poured from their fancy pots into delicate tea cups, and feeling oh so grown-up. It wasn't until I was much older that I figured out my drink was mostly milk & sugar. But still, such sweet memories this set evokes. Thank you!

This set reminds me of a teapot quilt that I made for a co-worker years ago. She was a teapot collector. Beautiful set.
