Teapot Arrangement

I'm a little teapot short and stout

Here is my handle, Here is my spout

When I get all steamed up here me shout

Just tip me over and pour me out

Did you ever sing that little song and perform the motions?


Today I am sharing my teapots with garden arrangements. Would it win a prize at the county fair? Probably not. But I like the looks of it on my table.

This teapot has rosemary. I don't think I have ever smelled a more fragrant herb. There is also some English thyme in the spout and a marigold in with the rosemary.

More thyme in this teapot.

Some friends invited us to pick blueberries last Thursday evening. We picked 2 gallons at the end of the evening after the sun was not so hot.

Join Lady Katherine for Tea Time Tuesday and take a look at what her guests are sharing today.

Now if I can just get everyone in the house out of the habit of piling things on my table and keep it looking like this! It is a full time job!

Something else to share:  we had a good time singing at the cowboy church tonight!  God blessed us with a slightly cooler evening for it was in a horse arena that was under cover but open air.  The crowd was certainly   encouraging, a good gospel message and we were able to share the gospel in song. Looking forward to more blessings this week. Have a great week everyone.


  1. I love your teapots and teacup! I grow rosemary, and love it so much! So easy to root, I just stick it in the ground and a new plant forms! I love the song, I sung it to my girls, now my grandchildren. Thank you for joining me for Tea Time Tuesday! Cowboy church is great when your at events that take you away from church. My girls use to show, sheep,goats, and pigs. We had Cowboy Church then. Summer is a time with horse shows and wonderful Cowboy Church!

  2. I really enjoyed the cowboy church too!

  3. I love your teapot arrangement. It is lovely. Oh, the cowboy church. I had never been to one until I started dating my fiance who is a cowboy thru and thru. I didn't know what to expect but I really liked it! Thanks for bringing back those memories!

  4. Very pretty...and what a blessing to enjoyed a good gospel message.
    Sweet Blessings,

  5. Jane I love your teapots and sweet little teacup. I have a lot of dishes in that Blue Onion pattern...but sadly, no teapot.
    And rosemary...oh, that it by far my favorite herb. Do you know that rosemary has aromatherapy properties? It promotes happiness...I have even gone so far as to tuck a fresh sprig in my pocket and pull it out from time to time during the day to sniff...and instant burst of well being *sigh*!

    Have a wonderful day...

  6. I love that idea and yes Rosemary is a very fragrant herb. I have a pot here at home (in need of transplanting) and it is lovely to walk by and have a sniff now and then.
    Love the china and the photo with the blueberries, very summery!
    Have a super week!

  8. Yes, I did sing I'm a Little Teapot and did the motions. Thanks for sharing your teapots. I have a collection that I am going to share on my blog one of these days.
