My husband bought me this teapot 11 years ago in honor of my new found passion, art. I have about 35 teapots in my collection, and I use them all at some time or another. You see I LOVE tea, a strong cup of tea with milk and sugar.When I first came to America there were two things I remember specifically rejecting, paper napkins, and iced tea. Paper napkins I thought a waste of money, and iced tea because I thought it an absolute aberration. It took me 15 years to get used to the idea lol! WEll it wasn't that I was totally stubborn, the quality of the tea used back in the late 70's=80's was 'orrible. Nowadays there are so many choices and really good too, just don't serve me Earl Grey (YAK, can't stand the bergamot). Oh and tea made with microwaved water, double YAK!!!!!!!!! And what is my favourite tea? Ceylon. And for iced tea with lemon and mint I like Turkish black tea called Rize. How about you?
I never could just sit and watch telly without doing something, and so I stitched up a storm of worry dolls when I watched the movie "Perfume". I had read the book twice and couldn't imagine how they would translate it into a movie. I thought it the most strange and interesting story I had ever read, and the movie was no different. I think it really helped to read the book first to appreciate the movie, though.
