A teapot for me is a symbol of a kitchen, home cooking and coziness - everything that makes a house into a Home (yes, with a capital H). I have quite a few teapots in my kitchen, porcelain and cast iron, vintage and modern.
I use most of my tea pots to brew tea and switch from one to another quite often. I also have a small decorative collection of Victorian teapots, the kind with a stand and a burner, so one would place a teapot onto a nicely appointed tea table and light a burner to keep it hot.
All these teapots have been made at the very end of the 19th century, which means they're about 115 years old now. I found them on Ebay, restored them and covered them in a special lacquer so they would not tarnish anymore.
I made a few night lights in a shape of a teapot. This one is a pale pink color with lavender spots and silvery decorations. It looks very much like a real teapot - check out this picture I have with a coffee cup. It looks great lit up and definitely has an elevated coziness factor - just a thing you might need in your kitchen.
