Teapots from Winterthur
















From these pictures I have cropped and
enlarged individual teapots.

Some crispness was lost in the
process but I think it is worth
it to be able to see them better.





Winterthur is located near
Wilmington Delaware
and is a real treat if you love
Early American Antiques.



It has an on-site program that
teaches restoration of antique
furniture.
















Maybe this will put you in the mood for
a nice soothing cup of tea.
It has gotten much cooler here in Pennsylvania.
Maybe I'll enjoy a cup before the school day
begins...Now should I go for invigorating
or soothing? Hmmm...

Edited to Add: When I opened the cupboard to choose my tea what did I spy but Mocha Cappuccino looking at me. It was not tea, but oh, was it good. Served up in a yard sale find of a mug. Very pretty, indeed.

I love the teapots and have two myself, but I'd rather have a cup of coffee.

Visited Winterthur several years ago. They do have a beautiful collection of teapots. And, yes, your lovely photos are putting me in the mood for a lovely spot of tea on these cool and breezy fall morning.

The teapots are lovely! Thanks for sharing them. We have not visited Winterthur. Sounds like a great date day to me.

We have been drinking our evening tea again as we sit all cozy in the living room, knitting or whatever.

Such a lovely ritual!

I've only been to Winterthur once a few years ago. I don't remember seeing the teapots. I was excited about seeing the gardens. Thanks for sharing.

I love the teapots! I went to my cupboard today and spied some hot chocolate and it sounded so good! I know fall is on the way if something hot to drink sounds good:) Have wonderful 1st of September. Your friend, Elena
