Care for a Cuppa?
One of the few I regrets I have in life is selling my teapot collection. I don't even drink tea but I love the shape of teapots. It began when I saw a friend about to throw a cracked pot and I grabbed it. She subsequently gave me more and eventually I had about 10 quirky cute pots that sat on a shelf across my kitchen window. They were filled with a variety of water plants and I loved them.

As you may imagine when I saw the headline "TEAPOT EXTRAVAGANZA" my eye was well and truly caught. This sounds like a place for me. Are you wondering as I was if it may be time to start new collection?

St Albans Church in Toowoomba will be displaying over 500 teapots - 500!! Some decorative, some functional, lots of novelty teapots and even some antiques.
