Teapot Extravaganza

Today was the loveliest of days and it is so true when they say the company that you keep makes all the difference. Today I drove up to visit my dear friend Fiona in Toowoomba. You see we have this annual playdate to visit the sweet little Teapot exhibition and the Toowoomba Quilters Quilt show.
After hugs it is straight off for a hit of coffee and some delicious scones...
Beautiful aprons surround you whilst you have your Devonshire tea. Fiona is always such a lady.
Note the Twinings pinkie there. Yours truly was just hanging out to try out those scones...
We then set out to look at all the beautiful displays of teacups and teapots. Around the room are many vintage teatowels....showing my age in the fact I actually recognise some of them.
Warning lots of piccies!!!!
Lots of pretty teacups...oooh! Cute teapots......loved the plum pudding!
and then you have the "beautiful blues"....
Oh and the "pretty pinks"...
and then we got a bit silly.....overwhelmed by all this selfies in the mirror took place...
More teatowels...
There were also sweet little mini sets...
There were also some lovely vintage items....loved this little one.
We then headed off to the quilt show ( I will post tomorrow about that) and a delicious lunch was had at
"The Engineroom". A wander through the Antique store next door finished off the day beautifully.
I was battered by a ferocious storm on the way home....bit hairy! But as I reached the turnoff to home and was stuck in traffic a beautiful rainbow reminded me what a fabulous day I had had with a dear friend.
Thank you so much Fiona. You are definitely the 'hostess with the mostest' xxx
Namaste and Blessings,
Michelle xxx

  10. What a wonderful exhibition!! I must put that on my "to do" list for Toowoomba - maybe sometime in the next decade. LOL. There is a great tea cosy exhibition on the long weekend in June locally. So many fun tea cosies. I love my tea, in a teapot of course, so I have a little collection of fun teapots. So the exhibition is right up my alley.

  11. Oh I remember last year... good to see you at it again with Fiona.
