Show & Tell Friday







Thank you to
Kelli at There's No Place Like Home for hosting the Show & Tell. I hope you'll be able to stop by her place and check out all the other displays.

Here is my Show & Tell...

I just have to share with you what my husband wanted me to have for Valentine's Day this year. It's this gorgeous teapot that you see here gently lying in its padded box.

It's made by I. Godinger and the pattern is called Primavera. This particular pattern has butterflies, dragonflies and a few properly placed flowers on it.
Here's a close up of a butterfly. I brewed a lovely pot of Green Tea in it this evening as I wanted to see how it poured. Surprise - no drips!!

One of the things that I love about this teapot is that it is an exact match to the serving plate that I was given for my birthday last year by my friend C. (And you know how we girls like to have a matching set!!) I feel thoroughly spoiled!

Here's a close up of the delicate edging on the plate.
Here they are together as a set. Aren't they beautiful? Next week I'll be putting them to good use - as part of an outreach get-together with a few acquaintances and friends. They'll have their choice of tea and I'll make some delicious filled muffins to offer as well. It will be such a fun time!

Now I'm sure you'll want to get going and see all the other treats at Kelli's, so thank you once again for taking the time to visit with me - I hope you'll leave a comment to let me know you were here.

Blessings,
Jessica

Oh yes, you are so right, we girls love to have a matching set! Congratulations, you really got a wonderful gift from your hubby on yesterday's Valentine's Day! By the way, I guess primavera is Italian and means spring!

Have lots of fun with your teapot!

Best wishes from Germany,

Cute butterfly collection. My sister loves butterflies and they made me think of her. Sounds like tea is going to be beautiful too!
