WELCOME

I bought a teapot....... Just a teapot....... An old one, and kind of unusual. I had to find out about the maker's mark, and thus began a wonderful journey! 15 years later, and I now have over 250 ALB teapots. Not to mention a couple of coffee pots, a tankard, milk jugs, sugar bowls, and a plate. Little by little, more people are being enticed by these lovely teapots, and starting collections of their own. This blog was set up so that all ALB lovers could have a place to meet, share photos, ask questions, and in general get to know each other and share their appreciation for these lovely teapots. If you leave a question, please be kind enough to leave an email address, so someone may send you an answer!

So come on in, sit down, have a "cuppa", and enjoy.

OMG!!!!

SO....my sister and I are in Blissfully Yours, in Tampa. We strike up a conversation with a very interesting lady regarding teapots. She tells us she has been trying to find the same two teapots her mother/grandmother had. Cream, one with a copper cozy, one with a stainless cozy, both felt lined. Well, I was not familiar with any such teapots, but did a search when I got home. Found it!! Well, the copper one, anyway. So, she got one of her teapots. I must admit I was feeling very good. I love doing thing for other people, especially when it is something as special as finding that teapot. Now, here comes the kicker...........God, in all his wisdom and mercy sent me a gift through a seller on Ebay. Just thought I'd take a chance and see if any new ALB's had been listed since yesterday, and THIS is what I found......
