Teapots, Sugar bowls and Creamers

I thought I would share a few pictures of my teapots, sugar bowls and creamers with you all.  I think I have told this story before but some of you may not know it.  This sugar bowl and creamer belonged to my mother.  She told me when she was a very young girl, a man came by the house peddling his wares.  He was riding a horse and carried his things to sell inside saddle bags that hung down each side of the horse.  He was showing his things to sell to my grandparents and my mother saw this set.  She asked if she could have it and my grandfather said yes.  This was a rare treat as few things were ever bought at her home.  This was the first item to go into her “hope chest.”

And here they are sitting nice and pretty on the shelves Hubby built for me. 

Today is cloudy here with a coolness in the air.  I think we are supposed to get cooler temps this weekend.  We went over to clean the church yesterday.  It was our last week of cleaning until next September.  The men at church have been working on putting a roof over the entrance to the basement.  Grace got a few pictures of them hard at work.

They got quite a lot done and they are working there today as well.  I hope you all enjoy your day and God bless.
