White Wednesday on Thursday

Isn’t this the cutest tea pot you have seen in a while? I found it at GW for $1.99 and thought YES! I finally found a white tea pot for my kitchen! When I turned it around this is what I found out what it really was…

A tart warmer! Looks like it has two eyes and a BIG mouth doesn’t it? It’s cute though , I used some small tea lights at first but found huge tea lights at the Dollar Store they last alot longer than the smaller ones also used a gingerbread tart and it smelled so good all day long!

I have the teapot warmer on my kitchen counter bar with this fall arrangement…the small, galvanized bucket I found at a yard sale a couple summers ago for .25 and I plopped in a fall arrangement from Dollar General, $3.00 and added the pheasant feathers, turned out adorable!

I found these fall, glittery, felt/foam leaves at the Dollar Tree too and put them on the Go plate, teacup (underneath) and glass topper that I made Oh and the pumpkin is from the Dollar Tree too. Placemat is from Target ♥ TARGET!

A view of my kitchen window sigh, I’d love to paint the cabinets white and I’m sure I’ll get them done next spring, we are having a huge picnic for my Stepdaughter next summer, she is getting married on January 1st in North Carolina, you know how it is when you are having company one thing in decorating leads to another? I’m keeping my fingers crossed about the cabinets and hopefully some glass doors on some of them, trouble is Mr. I is a do it yourself person but he is short on time and would never pay somebody to do it…so I wait!

The clock you see to the right I won from CSN I love it but just can’t decide or find something to go with it, I’ll take a better picture of it when I get that done:)

I’m linking to Kath’s Faded Charm’s White Wednesday and also Debbie Do’s Garage Sailing Party, have a wonderful day…it’s raining here in Pa. and I work tonight so I’m enjoying this rainy fall day!

Hi Rhondell,
I love your cute tea pot tart warmer! I haven't seen one as cute and since I adore tea pots, yes, I'm lovin it! I like the wreath on your window and the lace topper on your window too. Very pretty kitchen for Autumn!

Blessings,
Sandi

The tart warmer is adorable! When you think about it, you'll always know that "that one" is only for your vingettes. Very nice, and a great tool for aroma therapy in the kitchen. tami from the high street cottage

I love all of your fall decor, Rondell. Isn't it fun to turn Dollar Tree goodies into something beautiful?

And you're in good company ... I'm still waiting to paint my kitchen cabinets too (along with the rest of our kitchen.) We need more hours in the day!

Hope you're enjoying fall...

I love your teapot/tart warmer. It's totally lovely...and I LOVE to burn wax tarts. Mostly I use electric tart warmers from Scentsy, but I do have a couple that use tealights...including a teapot one. It is smaller (shorter) than yours and looks like red toile fabric.

Have a lovely day,
Patti

I love your tart warmer teapot!! I haven't found any goodies at the GW in a while, but I love going to look anyways. Also love your bucket with the Fall arrangement in it!! Dollar General had some nice Fall stuff this year. Everything looks great!!

Hi Rondell-so nice to meet you and thank you for being a follower! I love the teapot tart warmer. I don't think I've ever seen one!
Yes, NJ is a beautiful state, and I'm trying to show that through the blog because of all the bad publicity it gets!
thanks,

Well I thought it was a very cute teapot, but it's nice as a tart warmer too. BTW, I love the light over your kitchen sink.

Debbie said...

Oh what a pleasant surprise to have it be a warmer too....I love it! Great finds, and your home looks so cozy!

Kathy@ Gone North said...

Oh... I have that same warmer, also a GW find, BUT mine does not have a top on it...guess you are the lucky one & got the whole thing intact : )

Hi Rondell....your kitchen looks so cozy for Fall. That tart warmer is just too cute!
Sounds like you are getting closer to a white kitchen.

Nice to meet you, Rondell! Love your name- and I just popped in to thank you for your sweet comments on my blog!
I love it that you are cheap like me...I get most of my pretties at the Dollar stores, too...and I have that little pumpkin!
Love your teapot tart warmer. That is such a fun find and at that price, oh, you did good.
I have cabinets like you and hopefully mine will be white come spring. I can see it, but my DH is having trouble with it. Plus we have 25 cabinets doors and 4 drawers!
I just got new hardware at a garage sale, with the help of my best friend, Rebecca. They are white ceramic with pink roses!
I will be checking in with you to see all the fun things you do this fall!
Hugs- Tete

Nice finds and arrangement!
There is a Hobby Lobby in Lebanon. It was about 30 minutes from us, but you may be much farther away somewhere else in PA.
