Teapot Tuesday

Kim from Shabby, Pink and Pretty has once again invited me to participate in Teacup Tuesday. But today I am sharing about a special teapot.

Several years ago my dear sweet husband bought me this lovely blue and white Russian teapot.

He found it locally at an Antique/Gift shop. I fell in love with how finely it is painted with little bits of gold trim.

When my dear daughter went on her second Missions trip to Russia, she brought these back for me.

The matching sugar and creamer, both with lids. They are both so fine and delicate.

I love this tea service set. They have been presented to me by two special people that I love very much.

Please be sure to stop by Kim's blog and enjoy what she has to share today.

Have a wonder filled day!

Of course I would like it because of the blue and white but the shape of the tea pot and sugar and creamer makes them even more lovely.
