At long last, I have found an item that's been on my wish list for YEARS: a teapot that can serve 10 cups of tea!
My heart almost stopped when I spotted this giant teapot at a church sale. It was in terrific condition!
Exhibit A of my lousy bargaining skills.
Me: How much is that teapot?
Church lady: Five dollars...what do you want to pay for it?
Me: [hands over a $5 bill].

Right: The 6-cup Brown Betty teapot by Price & Kensington (Made in England?).
The tea cozies sold at stores are usually for small or medium teapots. So I was thrilled when I found handmade 10-15 cup tea cozies at a local artisan boutique.
I love how the pattern features the different types of teas. It matches my coasters
This tea cozy is sooooooo pretty!

I can't wait to use my 10-cup teapot and tea cozy at our next office tea social!
