Opened the shutters this morning and the sun was streaming in the lounge just catching my new thrifty silver purchases from the weekend.
Doing a bit of research, I found out that this teapot is called a 'bedroom' teapot .One for the tea in bed I gather. I would have called this a coffee pot myself - shows you how much I know about silver! It is a vintage Kenson silverplate EPNS A1 'bedroom' teapot with a matching Kenson pedestal tray. The funny part is I bought them from two different thrift stores and they have the same pattern - bunches of grapes.
I don't usually see any silver in thrift stores but it was my lucky day and both for under $15 I was happy. They are in beautiful condition, and with a bit of polishing up now and again they are looking shiny and fab.
Do you have any silver in your home?
The roses are from a climbing rose that just opened this morning. They have the most sweetest velvet-like petals in the richest red. I have no idea of the name, but in response to a few emails requesting the name of the rose in my previous post I can tell you it is a fragrant Hybrid Tea rose called 'Eiffel Tower'
Here's to a Very Happy Monday and a Happy week!
