T Stands for Tuesday & Teapots, too!

Rejoice in the
Lord alway:
and again I say,
Phil 4:4

Hello T Gang!  I am back with another Teapot!  If you have visited before, you know that I want to document my teapots, before I downsize my collection. So, here is another one.

A former neighbor bought this for me at an auction about 30 years ago.  Isn't it just too cute?
I made a paper craft teapot for a centerpiece from a Pinterest pattern for our Virtual Tea Party!

Virtual Tea Party in 2012
 A group of us on SplitcoastStampers website had a virtual tea party.  We took photos and posted in our chat forum.  We also sent each other little gifts we made.  It was really fun.  I didn't think of taking a photo of my little teabag pouch someone crocheted for me.  I carry it in my purse with a couple of teabags.  Pretty nice gift.  Sorry,  I can't remember the recipe, but it was pumpkin bread with raspberry cream cheese, or something like that.  That was a recipe off of  Pinterest, also.  The Virtual Tea Party was really fun.

I hope you enjoyed my virtual tea party. 

Must show you some tea art, also!

I recycled and stamped  on a teabag again for two challenges on SplitcoastStampers over the week-end. One challenge  was to recycle something on your card, and the other was to use something on your card that you might put in your compost.  Some would put coffee grounds on the pile,  but since I am a tea drinker, it would be tea grounds.  I used a 3-D Sizzix embossing folder.  I stamped with, wait for it, Tea Dye Distress ink!  I also did some distressing with it on the embossing folder.  I used a fancy tag die from Spellbinders, and added some Dazzles. The tea names and tea cups images are from Mrs. O'Leary's Artful Illusions.  The sentiment is from SU! Tea Shoppe. 

Thanks for stopping by for T Stands for Tuesday!  Hop over to Altered Book Lover see Elizabeth and Bluebeard who are our hosts for T Stands for Tuesday!  Have a wonderful week!


  1. I love your teapots and a virtual tea party sounds fun. years ago when I first got into blogging and there was no facebook a group of us would have a virtual brunch on sundays, or sometimes picnics on the beach was allot of fun
    Enjoyed seeing your art too
    Happy T Day

  2. Your table looks gorgeous with the wonderful teapots, I'm sure the virtual tea party was great fun. Love the tea-bag art, too. Happy T Day, hugs, Valerie

  3. i love this TEA post. what a funny idea to hold a virtual tea Party! the Card is awesome!
    happy t-day:)

  4. A virtual tea party sounds fun, the photos were lovely and of course the teapots looked fantastic. I think you are very brave downsizing your teapots, I'm afraid I couldn't part with any of mine. However I don't have such a large collection, so that helps.
    Happy T day wishes.

  5. Your rooster teapot is amazing and I loved seeing your virtual tea party! The craft teapot you made is a beauty and makes a lovely centrepiece too 😁. It looks and sounds like you had so much fun and what a wonderful gift from your friend. I like the card you made with the stamped recycled teabag too. Wishing you a very Happy T Day! J 😊

  6. I love your cockerel tea pot! I love looking at your collection.
    Your virtual tea party sounds like great fun. Yes, the cake looks very scrummy, especially now that I am on a diet: no cake!
    Talking about virtual... I do walking4fun too. And I am about to start a new one. If I start the same one as you do, we could walk together.
    Happy T-Day,

  7. Oh what a pretty table setting for tea and cake! I love the virtual tea party idea. And your papercraft teapot is so beautiful as well as is your vintage looking card. TFS and happy T day!

  8. What would we do without Pinterest??!! I love Pinterest.. great ideas there. Vanessa Valencia has a nice Mad Hatter tea party every year and its like that.. So much fun when friends get together.. even bloggy friends.. :) Happy happy T day Sharon! Hugs! deb

  9. A wonderful post - what a fab idea this virtual Tea Party is and your card is simply adorable! Happy T-Day!

  10. That rooster teapot is my favorite so far :) I feel almost like I took part in your virtual tea party as I sit here with my cuppa and look at your photos. Happy T Tuesday

  11. A very sweet virtual tea party- thanks for having us! Lovely centerpiece and always enjoy seeing each piece of your teapot collection!

  12. That is a beautiful table for your virtual tea party. What a fun idea! I really like the rooster teapot too. Are you keeping any of your teapots? You need to be prepared for the next time you have a virtual tea party. And reaspberry cream cheese and pumpkin bread-now that sounds like the perfect snack with your cuppa. Hope it was a great T day. Hugs-Erika

  13. Love the idea of a virtual tea party! I do love the square pot you are pouring from! Belated Happy T day! Chrisx

  14. I am back from Missouri, where I spent two very sleepless days and nights. After returning, I crashed. Finally awake and drinking my first coffee of the day, I am thrilled to see you shared your T Tuesday tea pot and virtual tea party experience. It looks like fun and it is sort of what we are doing each T day, but without the tea pots and cups.

    Thank you for your contribution to T Tuesday this week. I loved your beautiful art, too. I must save some tea bags soon and make art like yours.

  15. I do love seeing all of your teapots and the virtual tea party sounds grand. Love your paper craft teapot too. ♥
    Thanks for stopping by my blog! Your visits are always enjoyed.
    Happy Late T Day!!!

  16. What pretty teapots! And a wonderful idea! Must check out some more of the posts!

  17. The rooster teapot is very cheery, but I really like the teapot you used for the virtual tea party. Such an unusual shape. The virtual tea party sounds fun and I love the way you set your tea table. Very pretty. Enjoy your day.

  18. Your virtual tea party was lovely, Sharon. That's a darling teapot card you made for it.

    The Tea Dye Distress ink was a very clever way to meet the challenge. The "cup of thanks" came out great! I love the embossing folder you used.

    Happy T-day! Hugs, Eileen

  19. What a fun time. Love your rooster tea pot. If you ever decide it needs a new home, let me know. You did a fabulous job on your Tea Art.
