    I’m on the scrounge for teapots.

    Does anyone have any teapots that they don’t want and might like to donate to me?

    I’m organising an afternoon tea on Saturday to raise funds for our church.

    I’m looking for pretty teapots that you don’t want or need anymore.

    I’m happy to collect from anywhere in Stafford.

    Alternatively if you’ve noticed any going cheap in any of the charity shops then I’d appreciate a heads up in the right direction.

    At the moment ive got 45 attending and 3 teapots.

    (Not strictly true..., people have donated teapots but they are stainless steel and I want pretty bone China ones).

    Oxfam and the various Katharine House shops are worth perusing.

    I put an e mail out to the village and waited.
    I've had a constant stream of visitors this week bringing teapots.
    I think I might have enough now.

    Is this another one of those occasions when you get your baps out? If so, weather's looking good for it. :)

    It’s dainty sandwiches with the crusts cut off, a selection of home made cakes, scones with jam and clotted cream, all served on bone china cake stands.

    It’s in our garden so all hands on deck tonight and tomorrow morning.

    It’s been non stop visitors all day including two vicars.

    I’ve now got 25 milk jugs, 17 afternoon tea stands and 36 T pots.

    But I might not have enough spoons.

    It’s not massive, It’s small for the size of the house but perhaps bigger than say an average semi. We haven’t got acres.

    We’ve tried to make the most of the space that we’ve got, so we’ve got a garden for entertaining our friends.

    It’s easy to maintain, not everyone’s cup of tea, but I do love my garden, it’s a work in progress.

    I’ll post some pictures tomorrow @Glam
