Blue Monday

Welcome to Blue Monday! This event is hosted by Sally at http://smilingsally.blogspot.com/. This is the day we participants post something Blue! Go over and check out all the Blueness and then come play along!

Today I would like to show you one of my teapots. This is a Currier and Ives blue and white teapot by Royal China. I've had this for many years along with so many of the dishes which I've collected for over 20 years.


I just love the shape of this teapot, but mostly, I love the designs on it!

This is the little lid with a lighthouse surrounded by waves and a rocky shore.


Look at all the details on the top.


The sides hold a picture of this lovely clipper ship.
See the scrolling on the spout? It's also on the handle, too! So much attention to detail!
Hope you like my little blue and white Currier and Ives teapot! I certainly do and will glady service you some tea from it anytime you want to pop in for a visit!
Now go on over to Sally's and check out the Blue!!
I'll leave you with a little Note Song~
"No Sugar Tonite"
No sugar tonight in my coffee
No sugar tonight in my tea
No sugar to stand beside me
No sugar to run with me
~ sung by The Guess Who (abbreviated version ;)

  3. What a sweet little tea pot. I am a big tea drinker and have a small collection of pots, some were sent to me from England by my sister during the years that she lived there. Those are very special to me.

    I'm surprise that your song wasn't "I'm A Little Teapot, Round and Stout." ;-)

  9. Hello dear Sheila, I do love your Courier and Ives tea pot and your other pieces as well. The detail is wonderful. I would love to have tea with you. smile.

    Thanks for your sweet comments about my aunt and my story today. She is so special to my family. Out of ten children there are three still living.
    I hate to see them getting up there in age. Such is life.

    Loved your little song today as always.

    Hugs...Jeanne

  19. I love your teapot. In all my currier and ives things I don't have a teapot, but I have the sugar and creamer set. Two of them I think. But the picture is not the same as yours. Actually each thing has a different picture. I just checked. May have to do a blue post on the sugar and creamer set.

  27. I used to hate blue. Can you believe it? And now it's all throughout my house. So funny how my tastes have changed.

  28. Oh, I LOVE it! It is so beautiful. I am afraid that I am coveting over your lovely little teapot. But then, since having a hubby in the Coast Guard, I have a thing for lighthouses and ocean motives.
    Thanks for sharing I really am jealous.
    *hugs*

  32. Good afternoon Sheila,
    I just love your little teapot. I can see why you love it so much. It has blue for the ocean, ships, even a lighthouse, and there you are living so close to the sea. Very beautiful. Happy Blue Monday!

  33. What a beautful teapot. I love sitting down to real afternoon teas with cups and saucers and teapots. Usually I have them stored in the cupboard but lately I have been taking them out and using them far more often. Love the design too - its quite unusual. the colour blue always reminds me of the sea too. Have a happy week!
