Teapots in the Sunroom


Yesterday, Stephanie of Steph's Cup of Tea and PeggyR of My Affairs with Art and Daily Life! asked where I store my 100+ teapots.
They are in several rooms of our house. 

These are a few of my teapots displayed in the sunroom.  
About ten years ago, when AJ began walking and getting into things as a toddler, GJ made the two white shelves and hung them in the sunroom so we could put some of my teapots out of reach.   Although AJ is way past the toddler stage, the shelves still work well for keeping some of my teapots stored, but where I can easily find them when I need them. 

Maybe if I count one room at a time, I won't get distracted...I'll give it a try. 
24 teapots in the sunroom.

What a pretty shelf for your collection! I especially like the pegs with the miniatures hanging by ribbons! Thanks for giving us a peek into your home! Have a wonderful day today!

Thanks for sharing the pictures! Norm has put a shelf up in our kitchen for teapots, but I certainly don't have as many as you do! But you probably started collecting long ago...

I especially love the hooks for your ornaments! It would be great to be able to display my tea-themed Christmas ornaments year-round!

Just what I would picture for a Tea Lady to have. Fun to look.

Funny! I don't think I have 100 teapots, but somehow they do multiply and I wonder where they are. I once visited a tea friend and everywhere I looked in her house were teapots, even in the bathroom. Isn't it amazing how we can incorporate something we love into our homes.
