I bought more stuff. I couldn't help it, and it's not my fault, and ... other blame-diverting words.
It all started here with a blogpost about this teapot, shaped like an espresso maker. I think this so cool! I want one!! It's all mixed up, just like me. Then I just need to find a coffee maker shaped like a teapot. Heh.
So I went in search, but I couldn't find anything on it. Nada. Zippo. And Colin of the CoffeeCrew doesn't say where he found it.
I tried the Teapots, Teapots blog, but couldn't find it there either. BUT, I did find a post about interesting spot called TeaPot Island in Kent. The photo shows a woman standing next to a ginormous teapot fountain. Another must-visit place to add to my travelogue, for sure! There's not much detail on the Teapot Island website, but they do have a VERY interesting photo gallery of unusual teapots.
That was good for an hours' worth of diversion, but then I continued my search, and landed eventually at The English Tea Store, where they're having a closeout sale on some of their teapots! So ... well, you know how it is. I had to. It was a moral imperative. I bought two Amsterdam teapots, one large, one smallish. Very cute, very cheap, even with shipping. See, isn't it cute?
I am now putting the credit card away, in a box, high on a shelf, behind something really heavy and difficult to move.
