Teapot Pins

I have been collecting teapot lapel pins for many years.  Some of these are gifts from friends and family, and some of them I purchased at various tea shops.   The large pewter pin in the middle used to play "I'm A Little Teapot" and was a gift from my family. 

This is my favorite pin. I have worn it to many afternoon tea venues.
I purchased at a craft show many years ago from Kentucky artist, Robbie Moriarty
She has changed the design since I purchased this, but she makes a similar pin, "Tea Time." 

My neighbor Mary K. and her sister Virginia gave me this pretty Christmas pin several years ago. 

I decided I needed a little glitz and purchased these online. 
This is a hand painted tea-themed pin I purchased to wear on my denim jacket. 
I enjoy wearing all of these pins at different times.

Love all your pins and your favourite is the one I like best too.
Thanks for sharing them; very seldom see teapot pins.

Well, as you can imagine, I don't care for today's post at all! (KIDDING!)

My goodness, there are so many designs I've never seen before -- isn't it amazing how frequently they used the teapot and teacup as a design element? And you are lucky to have that Christmas pin ... I got outbid on its sister on eBay last year but still hope to find one just like it!

Lovely, lovely collection, Linda!

Love seeing your pin collection. I like your favorite too. What fun! Like Angela, it is surprising how many different teapot pins are out there.
