Mad Hatter

On Friday I discovered that I actually have a teapot collection.
Tim the tool man put up some shelves so I could display my teapots, at first I asked for a couple of shelves but it soon became apparent that it would not be enough as I gathered together teapots from cupboards around the place. (The morning light comes in here and has washed out the photo a bit but you still get the picture!)

I also had him put in an extra shelf above the ones I had already in the kitchen for every day china etc. I wasn't feeling too well on Friday so I took the day off and spent some time dusting, scrubbing and re-organising my kitchen. I also seem to have a collection of jugs too!

And to my huge relief at last I have a lovely clear bench below to make my breakfast.
I won't show you my lounge room yet as it is definitely NOT clear and organised, I had intended to finish that job yesterday but spent most of the day playing taxi driver and driving miles to purchase school books that I couldn't afford at the beginning of the year and were now a priority. I did manage to get a bit of gardening done though. Boy it needed it as it is almost dead after all the heat and inattention! I'm off to buy some soil wetting agent as it is as dry as desert sand out there at the moment. I have about 20 pots of herbs to plant out and I think I'll put in a lavender hedge near the limestone garden edging/seat.

Wow! That's a LOT of teapots!!! It's hard to get a sense of scale, but it looks like you've got some pretty big ones! You could use them for pouring soup, I suppose...
