Bad Taste?

Oh goodness, I went a little mad in the Charity Shop the other day...

I have been after a teapot for a while now (my mother always complains about us never having one when she comes round for tea and I was thinking they are rather splendid as decoration)

Well I somehow came home with this :



And my boyfriend’s exact words were: “It’s hideous”
So I have swiftly hidden it away in the cupboard mourning my blatant bad taste in crockery.

I don’t know what came over me. Well I do know what came over me, I wanted something unusual and quirky, and this happened to be sat on the shelf.

Part of me still thinks it’s kind of me. I have always been fascinated by things that are slightly odd to be honest. It’s by Sadler and comes in various designs I have since found online.

Honestly what do you think? Hideous or lovely?

  9. It's genius! Get it back on the shelf. If the boy doesn't like it, tell him he can find something better - bet you he won't bother!
