I gave Mom two cd's for her birthday and these two teapots. Her old teapot cracked and I need my tea. When Mom and Dad moved into grandpa's place they got his old tea pot but of course, we really don't want to use that one too frequently. I gave Mom a big one that I use but it is just plain. So I bought these two as well. I am not sure if I didn't buy them for myself. They both were thrifted. I had been looking for one like the brown one for awhile but "Bibles for Missions," my favorite thrifts store, always priced them too high. I found this one at Goodwill for a couple dollars. The mushroom one I paid a bit more for at "Bibles" but come who can resist it?
