Yes / no



Love my new vintage teapot. No, I don't think I will use it. And yes, I live in doily world.

Me encanta mi nueva tetera (de segunda mano). No, no creo que la use. Y sí, vivo en el mundo del pañito.

sorry..
is that a Copco kettle? (that's how you spell it!)

Karen Barbé said...

Well, thanks for the hint, Isabel. I didn't know Copco kettles. Mine doesn't look like one, perhaps just a knockoff? The lid is different.

Yo tengo varios tapetes en ganchillo de mi abuela que guardo con mucho cariño, me encantaría aprender, un día de estos me pongo.La tetera es vintage total y monisima.

Yes yes yes, it is so beautiful Karen!! I can totally understand why you won't use it - I have pieces like that too that I don't want to break or damage by using them ;) Love the vibrant colour and the shape and everything... and the doily world is gorgeous too :) Kx

A great find. I heart in Etsy something in the same shape.
My grandmother told me to dry a doily on a towel. It keeps the shape..

Merci Ginette said...

Hacía mucho que no escuchaba decir la palabra "pañito", ahora que se ha puesto de moda la palabra "doily". Supongo que usar la palabra en inglés quizás nos evita la culpabilidad de haber estado despreciando estas maravillosas creaciones años atrás... (me confieso culpable ;)
Un abrazo.

Thanks for the tip, Noga. I'll do that next time :)
