Awesome Shit That I Don't Really Want But is On Trend Monday

There are a LOT of godawful teapots in the world. The quantity of ceramic wasted on replicating animals, vehicles, hats, cartoon characters and holidays figures in teapot form is offensive.

Do I need to be able to pour tea out of the nipples of a non-specific woodland creature? I submit that the answer is NO.

That being said, I love a well-designed teapot and look forward to the day when I’m able to move into a 4,000 square foot loft and install a room divider teapot display. I mean, how sexy is this thing, right?

We also seem to have developed a national obsession with Russian nesting dolls; I blame Pinterest. It was only a matter of time before one of the nesting doll enthusiasts collided with a teapot aficionado, resulting in the creation of The Ultimate Pinnable Object: the Saint Tea-tersburg tea set.

In the event that you or one of your loved ones are among the Russian nesting doll people, I humbly offer it for your approval.

  1. I am a nesting doll person, but I like to carry through the theme with nesting dolls. People do buy me nesting doll type stuff, which is sweet, but I don’t really want all the tchotchkes. I feel like the nesting dolls are tchotchkes enough. :P

    The Tetera one, though? That is truly hilarious. I could never pour two cups simultaneously. I’m glad when I can get the water to boil. Two spouts is just asking for disaster!

  2. The nipply one has a scarf knitted by the artists MOTHER tho!!
    A wall divider of teapots, what a fucking amazing idea!!!

  3. I don’t want any nesting anything, especially spiders in my hair. Off topic? But, although over many years my husb and I have hosted a fair number of lovely people from former Soviet Union countries thru a State Dept program, and we have received WAYYYYY TOOOOO MANYYYYY nesting dolls. OY! We have also received lovely lace items, babushkas (sp?) and a lot of joy. But the nesting dolls? Enuf.
