a spot of T

I am a little teapot short and stout
here is my handle
here is my spout
when I get all steamed up
then I shout
tip me over
and pour me out


I apologize for getting that song stuck up in your head :)
but this teapot always makes me think of that song
and having kids around
we sometimes break into song
and the matching hand motions
for any number of silly songs :)

you're never too old for songs and the matching hand motions!

... (off the subject) and the delphiniums have officially exploded now!

... for more lovely spots of T, visit the blogs listed in my sidebar "Tea on Tuesday Blogs"

I'm going to have that song in my head all day. Yep, I'm even going to blame it on you every time I sing it (grin). The little tea pot is perfect for this song, too.

I laughed so hard when I saw the tea bag tag (say that three times fast) I almost fell off my chair. I'm still laughing. Laughing and singing. What could be better this T Tuesday. Hope yours is as happy as you have made mine.

I couldn't find a private email but wanted to let you know I'm mentioning your tea blog list in my next "tatting tea Tuesday" post. Several lace tatters focus on tea and tatting on Tuesday also.

cute tea pot cute song and now I'm off to do a little tea dance.

Reading the comment before mine. Tatters!!! I just love tatting. Not doing it, I dont know how, but the results of others doing it. I think it has just about died out here.

Sweet T post Kimmie and I agree with you! Your garden must be such a pretty and colorful place!
The tea tag quote really speaks to me today!
Happy T to you as always!

Takes me back to when my son was little ... 40 years ago.

Oh I sang that song a few hundred times in my teaching days!! (Only we sang 'when the kettle boils, hear me shout...' :-)
Love the colour of your delphiniums.....
