Boiling over

We've been using this stunning design piece to boil water to make tea ever since I let the kettle boil too long and burned the enamel off the bottom a couple of months ago.  We had to toss it.

We do have a heavy cast iron teapot that takes forever to boil and we are much too busy to wait for a kettle to boil.  Whenever we get the chance we look for a teapot that we might both like but haven't seen anything yet.

Most of these ones are vintage so we probably couldn't use them just in case there is something toxic inside which could harm the feathered friends in the house.  They are nice to look at though!

This vintage French set by Salins studio is interesting but too angular for me.  It's also $200.  The set comes in other colours too if you look around online

The colours coordinate well with this Pierrot mime teapot. Also nearly $200

Laide.  (That's French for ugly.)

I kind of like this one but it reminds me a little too much of the Tin I should be filling it with oil instead of water to make tea.

What's your favourite kind of tea?  I generally only drink Earl Grey and sometimes a lavender chamomile one if it's late at night.  I can't stand fruity teas.


  1. I think you need a tea pot as a wedding gift when you have that wedding party! (wink wink)
    My favorite tea by far is Aveda organic Comforting tea. It's sooo delicious. It has a natural sweetness to it. I also like to drink green tea, chai and some detoxifying teas.

  2. Loving the French set - so Art Deco. The black would look great at my house...!!
