March Moments

Hello, spring?

Last week, Mother Nature delivered 20 cm of snow. Gotta love March snow days!

Teacup by Sutherland China
 St. Patrick's Day Tea #1: Irish Breakfast by David's Tea.

St. Patrick's Day Tea #2: Jasmine Crème Brulée green tea.
I used my David's Tea rewards to score a free cup of this sweet and creamy tea.

Cool Things I Saw But Didn't Buy #1
Spotted at Value Village: the biggest functional teapot that I ever saw!
It looked like it could serve 20-30 cups of tea and had a spigot at the bottom.

Cool Things I Saw But Didn't Buy #2
Spotted at Winners: an adorable "Hoppy Easter" mug on sale for only $4!

Cool Things I Saw But Didn't Buy #3
Spotted at Hallmark: a unique teacup bookend.

Have you seen any neat tea-related items recently?

I'm joining the following parties this week:


  1. I'm glad that you enjoyed some St. Patrick's Day tea times, Margie. When I saw that ginormous teapot with the spigot, I gasped! Really,,it would be great for a crowd, wouldn't it? I loved seeing all your other finds, too, that you didn't buy. Hope your snow melts soon. Happy first day of Spring!

  2. Now this is a great post, things you didn't buy! I am a firm believer of looking and not buying. I have had to stop collecting teacup and pots. I gave some away when I moved a year ago and still have some packed.
    Have a good Spring day!

  3. So glad you weren't tempted to buy all those tea things, but that bunny mug sure was cute. Enjoy spring.

  4. Mmm, the Jasmine tea sounds delish but I wouldn't be able to drink it if it's creamy. I haven't been out and about much lately so I guess I'm missing all kinds of goodies out there. Glad you're having fun, Margie. Happy First Day of Spring although here on PEI, it doesn't feel or look like it. What did you think of the new CBC Anne last night? I thought it was pretty good. I certainly liked Matthew better.


  5. I really like the big tea pot but wouldn't know when I'd use it.I have a hard time when I see really cute cups to say no, your much stronger than I am. The book ends are awesome I need to go to Hallmark and see if they have them in the U.S. Thank you for sharing, Blessings.

  6. I am amazed with your will power for not buying, that little bunny would be calling out for me, that bookend too. Thank you for sharing such lovelies. Enjoy your tea with friends.

  7. I like the two bunnies! Looks like they're enjoying a nice gossip.

  8. The bunny cutouts are perfect to enjoy inside and out.
    Good for you for resisting the tea things Margie. So...confession time is it? Alright, I saw a really sweet 4 cup pink teapot at Bowrings but I didn't buy it. Hubby was going back past the plaza yesterday and I pleaded with him to go in and buy it for me. I am

  9. How fun! I love David's teas! I am going to look for the Jasmine Creme Brulee...sounds delicious! Your finds are so cute! I had one of the huge teapots with a spigot when we had a bricks-and-mortar antiques and tea items store, and gave it to a local restaurant for display when we closed the shop. Such fun! Thanks so much for linking to Tuesday Cuppa Tea!

  10. I love all your interesting finds. That tea pot is huge! I'm guessing you didn't buy it? Don't you just love that snow? All the snow was gone from my lawn when I got home...not now, it's looking a little white out there again. Enjoy your week!

  11. Fun tea items. Winners has some very pretty things, but I resisted. I did see the teapot garland at Michael's that you mentioned awhile ago. So pretty, but I resisted that, too.
    It's feeling more spring-ish out here and things are starting to bloom. So exciting.

  12. Hi Margie, yikes, 20 cm of snow in March?! I am not sure if I would love that...
    But I do love your green St. Patrick's Day Sutherland China tea cup.
    The super big Tea pot is really cool! So much prettier than the big thermos's that you usually see if tea is served at big events.
    Hope the snow has melted and spring has come to your area and stayed around!
    Warm regards,

  13. Hi Margie!Love your green tea cup!Thanks for sharing!Hugs. Maristella.

  14. Margie, Wow! That is a whopper of a tea pot! It's good to do some window shopping without bring stuff home at times. Have a great day! Sylvia D

  15. Thanks for the tea link Margie, you sweetie! Going to order some, thanks to you! Have a lovely week end!

  16. I love your sweet bunnies peering out the window at all that snow! Such treasures to see and enjoy. Loved that bunny cup you found at Winners.

  17. You are showing such restraint!! The huge teapot would be a conversation piece if nothing else. I wonder how much tea you would need to make a good pot. The bunny mug is cute, but not as cute as your wood cutouts in the window. I haven't seen anything cute that's tea related (that I didn't bring home ... lip burner!).

  18. I'm impressed with your restraint! Especially since the bunny mug was on sale ;). We had snow last week too--which is just crazy! Although our 3 inches isn't really a big deal, especially next to your 8ish, but we had delays though!

  19. Margie, congrats on not buying that big teapot! I couldn't resist a huge white teapot (no spigot) many years ago. It serves about 20 and has been used exactly not once! When serving a crowd, it's really easier to just make 3 or 4 "normal" pots. But I couldn't resist!

  20. Dear Margie:
    Lots of interesting items - the bookends were sure unique! Thanks for sharing.

  21. Hi Margie,
    I love your green teacup. It's so pretty. I have a very large teapot that I use when the family comes for dinner. It's a black brown betty shape and not a pretty one but it makes the largest pot of tea for my crew of tea lovers. I'm wondering if the $39.99 one you saw at Value Village was a Sadler. Have a Wonderful Weekend and I hope we all get spring weather soon. Karen

  22. Neat stuff, Margie!

    I laughed out loud at that huge spigoted teapot. That's hilarious.

    Thanks for sharing, and for your visits and prayers.

    Hugs. ♥

  23. Margie, the Jasmine Crème Brulée green tea sounds delicious. I am amazed with your will power for not buying, I would not resist to buy that cute bunny mug.
