Ceramic Sunday, Danish teapot.
It's cold outside, so here is a ceramic to give a little warmth, a teapot with a base to keep the tea hot, or to stew it gently! The pot was a present to my mother from her Danish friends and bears the inscription Munk Holte (of which I know nothing.) I think that it dates from the thirties.
Of course the best place to be at this time of year is inside, like Bertie, relaxing on cushions with a biscuit.
Bertie takes the biscuit.
Or tucked up all nice and cosy in bed.
As I mentioned on the 'titfer' posting, Wee one was always a very good model - especially when sleeping!
As she grew older a good way of keeping her still was to play a story tape. As a result we both knew the opening chapters of 'Heidi' and 'Swallows and Amazons' off by heart!
