My teapot

I remember seeing the first teapot I would buy to start my collection!  My friend Cheryl had gotten me into Clearance shopping at Target.  A few years before I had started a rabbit collection (I really don’t understand that one, sigh).  Apparently I was finally ready for a grown-up collection:)  These are in the order that they came into my possession:)

  2. Of course this entry has to be one of my very favorites! As for what I collect, teapots, teapots, teapots, and birds, birds, birds! My biggest ever collection is DUST! Thanks, Sher, for getting me bitten with the Teapot Bug! I’ll never get tired of collecting them!
