♥Christmas Teapots♥

About 9 years ago I worked at Kaufmann’s, a department store that is no more due to bankruptcy. I think they had been in business for over 75 years. I worked there for about 5 years selling everything from clothes to cosmetics, cosmetics was my favorite and did that for about 3 of those years! Working there had it’s perks 20% off of purchases, knowing when things were going to be on sale and getting them dirt cheap, I really miss that:) These teapots are by Debbie Mum and I did get to buy three of them, I don’t think I put them out last year but since I just went ahead and did my hutch this year even though I’m not crazy about it, I thought they would look good with the snowflake dishes.
I love the little, tiny dots for his eyes and is checkered pockets!

I’ve never found more again, when I bring them out they always make me think of the people I worked with and some fun memories but also the long hours that retail involves.

I did the top of my hutch different, the very rusty birdcage is a GW find for a dollar, the basket is from my brother-in-law’s mother’s estate sale, she used it for clothes pins. The ivy spray I also picked up at GW and it still had the price tag on it, the tin Santa my daughter bought me one year!
I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas, I wish you nothing but the best for the New Year, can you believe it is going to be 2011?
We are leaving Tuesday for Winston-Salem North Carolina, my step daughter is getting married on New Years Day and we won’t be back until Jan.2 so my next post will be next year! I hope all of you get what you wished for this Christmas but most of all Peace on Earth!!!
I’m joining My Romantic Home for Show and Tell!

Your little teapots are so cute! I think I drooled a little bit on the picture of the basket. :)

Merry Christmas, Rondell!

I hope you have a safe trip to WS. We are just down the road and received several inches of snow and it is still coming down.

Debbie Mum has the cutest things. I remember Kaufmans well....When I lived in Buffalo there was a Kaufmans. I have always wanted to work in the cosmetic department. I should not give up that dream, it can still happen.
