TEA FOR ONE

What better way to warm the soul on this cold winter day than with a cup of Korean walnut almond yam tea poured from the most adorable vintage owl teapot! I found him yesterday at a local antiques shop for only $5. He's only 5 inches tall so he makes the perfect teapot for one. I had to find a smaller cup to use with him. Luckily, I found one on my shelf of Yixing clay teapots.


Here are my other finds from the antiques shop. Yes, I have rather odd taste! That's a vintage skunk pincushion and a vintage patchwork quilt. I collect vintage pincushions and will share another one I recently found in a future post. I was drawn to the green color in the quilt, which was in very good condition.


My kitty companions, Figgy and Winnie, are keeping me in good company today. I had to get up early for an early-morning phone interview for a magazine article I'm writing, and these two guys got up right with me and watched over me from their perches in the parlor. 


Wishing you a warm Wednesday from all of us at Ashton House!
