This tea pot is a favorite of mine. I rescued it from Value Village with a motley collection of other pots for $6/ea and gifted the others away, keeping this one for myself. It's a little banged up, but the scratches and chips to the terracotta only add to its friendly warmth. This is my preferred "friend come to tea" pot.
The tea cups were found a few years later at St. Vincent de Paul's for $0.25/ea. They are quite delicate and fit comfortably into a hand. The colours pair so well with the tea pot that I like to use them all together.
What pretty things do you have hiding in the back of your cupboards?
