Her Teapot Collection

22 June 2011By 5 Comments

I’m pretty sure you all know about collecting stamps or like most women do, collecting bags or shoes. I do have quite a number of bags but it’s not something I would have thought of collecting. Sometimes we meet people who have the hobby of collecting things and it so happened that I’ve met one and this person happened to be my boss. She invited us to her place nearly two weeks ago and it was inspiring to see her collection of teapots. So far, she has collected 54 of them. I was wondering how she managed to find a space for them but she has built or has let somebody built a long shelf on the wall and placed the teapots on. Some of them are placed in bookshelves.

She told us how it all began and I was amazed the same thing happened to me, though not teapots but some kind of a weird collection, if I may describe it. She said it started when somebody gave her a teapot as a present, then followed by other persons and the rest is history, until she’s found herself collecting this thing. Some of them she bought from different places she visited. It’s uncommon type of collection, isn’t it?

    Thank you for sharing your views. I drink green tea from time to time but black tea is not yet in my list.

    I just call it weird cos I haven’t known anyone collecting it but me. I will be writing on this in the coming days. :-)

  2. My MIL is collecting teapots too. And she likes drinking tea. Whenever we come visit to her house, she always prepare green tea.

      Hello Mhar, it’s good to know there are other people collecting teapots, aside from my boss. I thought it’s rare to be knowing people doing this.
