Steep in Style

When you're out shopping for others, do you ever see something YOU want?  I do.

It seems that I find the best gift ideas for myself when looking for gifts for others. In fact, a few weeks ago, I came across a teapot that I thought would be just perfect to add to my list!  We have an electric cooktop and I did not want a teapot that just sat on the stove.

Spotting the name "Bella" first (which was my MIL's name), I could almost hear Mom's voice, "Lovely, just lovely," as I admired it on the display shelf.  A 1200 watt heating element holds the ceramic pot, allowing it to rotate a full 360 degrees...making serving and pouring easy!   It came in the blue that would blend nicely with other accessories in my kitchen and I've been looking for the perfect teapot to suit my needs.

So when my daughter asked me for "my list" I told her about the teapot.  

Tuesday when we went to RI to pick up my daughter and Angel's new TV and help them hang it, she said, " Mom, do you want your teapot today? It's right in the spare room."



Can you guess what I said????


 As soon as I got it home and washed it, I made a nice cup of tea.  Heating up quickly, the ON/OFF switch goes OFF when the water is ready.  The cord stores neatly beneath the base and it even has a "boil dry shut off."   I love it!  Kudos to BELLA...both of them!!


Don't you know someone who wants to "steep in style?"

Wow, very nice gift. Aren't children funny, when they have something for us they know we're going to love over the moon they just have to give it early. :-)

It is beautiful! But the features are even better! I have never seen one like this. What do you mean by "rotate"? Does it rotate on the stand? I see you have your honey ready. I am the same. When shopping for others, I always find things for myself and at times I even buy TWO of things!! Now, WHERE did you find this?

I always find things for myself when I'm trying to shop for someone else. That's a really nice tea pot.
