Vintage Jug

My grandma sent me this little piece of sunshine from her very own collection. I pretty much love it unconditionally, you know, like I love my kids. It's a tea pot and a kettle. Super impressive.

As a side, round here we call boobs jugs, juggalugs and so on. While thats not the type of jug im refering to, i thought id mention it.

  1. Tea time will be extra special now with this little beauty on the job.
    I bet it even has a great whistle.

    Happy hugs,

    PS: On the jugs thread, I have to regularly correct my salutation as my finger is known to slip from the 'h' to the 'j' key = happy jugs. Perhaps not the best way to end a comment to a fellow Blogerista?!?

  2. I do very much like all the red and especially the pattern. I have a similar red jug/kettle (of the kitchen type :)) that is part of a set.

  3. If you had found that in a shop it would have been exciting, but to come from your grandma makes it EVEN more fabulous. Love, love, love it! I'll pop over for tea anytime from that kettle!

  7. Nice jugs (of both kinds I'm sure!)

    I would be forever finding reasons for tea making if I owned one like that. Sigh. Just lovely!

  11. Lovely, its great to receive something that belonged to someone you love! My gran gave me one of her ceramic jars and it has pride of place in my kitchen! Every time I see it I think of her! Also your jug is red and very cute, both good things in my book!
