Odds and Ends and Nebraska

Odds and Ends...........

Hall Teapot - Blue Bouquet

I was over in Sulphur, LA looking in on my house.  While there a friend and I went to lunch and then checked out an antique and collectible store.  This store has only been open a short period of time.  While there, I found a Hall's teapot.  Some of you know that I collect them  (to a point).  They have to be in really good condition and so far all that I have bought have been different. 

This tree/bush is in my back yard.  I don't know
what it is 
but it is really pretty.  It looks like snow. 

Today, I finished putting the rows together for this quilt.  Tomorrow I will put on the two borders .  You can see the pieced border, which is the outside border.  I have been working on this quilt for some time.  It was my project making the blocks when I sew with the Stitch and Cackle Quilt Circle.                                                                     



On our shop hop we stopped at "No Place Like Home" in Minneapolis, Kansas.  This was a lovely shop.

Lucky me.........
I won a shop's gift.  A couple of days ago, in the mailbox was a box.  On the return it said Material Girls from Abilene, KS.  I thought, did I order something????  To my surprise when I opened it I was the shops winner.

  1. Lovely. I like the teapot with the curly handle. Are all Hall's teapots made with this handle? And you left us all in suspense. What was in the box?!!?!! Have a super day!

  2. This teapot is an Aladdin (style). They made other shapes. Look in my Labels section (Hall's) in the right column for other shapes. In the box - Vintage Textile Soak, Retayne, Sulky KK2000 spray adhesive, I Hate Ironing (this really works), quilt labels, and a spool of hand quilting thread. The box in itself was lovely. If I remember, I will take a picture and post. Thanks for the comment.
