Chats on the Farmhouse Porch 29

Hello, friends. Welcome to my porch for a little chat time. It's sunny and cool, but it's unusually warm by mid-day. A nice pot of tea can warm us up for an early chat.
I found this lovely teapot while on vacation. It was located at a tea
shop at Epcot. I really liked a tea cup that I saw, but it was $55, so it 
didn't come home with me.
Here are our questions for this week:
  1. Stephanie asks, "What kind of competitions do you prefer to watch? Dancing, singing, or cooking?
  2. My Kid's Mom asks, "Do you work? Are you retired? Are you a stay at home mom?
  3. Empty Nester asks, "What's your favorite thing about winter?
  4. Homeschool on the Croft asks, "What do you love most about where you live?"
  5. Did you or your children(grandchildren too) ever have a dollhouse?
  6. Wendell asks, "If horses have blankets, why don't they get a pillow too?"
Wendell, I only ask five questions.
Because I want to start a conversation, not chase them away.
"If you chase them away, can I have their carrots?"
Wen! You're hopeless!

My answers:

  1. I like all of the ones listed, but as a professional chef, I get a real kick out of cooking competitions.
  2. I am unemployed, but I work on our farm and I'm a stay at home mom. I guess the only one I can't claim is being retired.
  3. Winter? What's that? The weather is not acting like winter except overnight and early morning. Where's the snow? I can't remember what I like about winter. Oh- yes- cool,crisp air, breathtaking sunsets, thick fuzz on our horses, lots of hot tea and warm soup. Did I mention raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens?
  4. I'd say that we have four seasons, but see #3. I like our farm.
  5. I had a bookcase that I converted to a dollhouse. I painted it so each shelf looked like rooms. Each of my girls has a real dollhouse. I believe the oldest might have just given her to the youngest. The middle two have dollhouses made by my hubby.
  6. What are you talking about, Wen? You don't even have a blanket! You have lots of nice thick fur and a bank barn to go in if you're cold. I suppose you'll want a lazy boy chair as well:)

Have a great week!


  1. I love the teapot...beautiful....
    I didn't know you were a professional chef; can you come live with me?
    I think you were very inventive as a child to make a bookcase into a doll house...smart child you were...
    And to Wendall, tell him since you won't swing for a pillow I will knit him a hat to keep his head warm....I want to keep Wendall happy......maybe he wants a sweater too....

  2. I really think your teapot is lovely. These are nice questions for this week. I always forget to comment when I do the linky.
    Have a lovely day today,

  3. I love, love you teapot.

    Since I have little time to post on my blog I'll answer the questions quickly here. I'm running late for work.
    1. In order of preference, singing, dancing and cooking.
    2. I was a stay at home mom for 4 kids. I was a ceramic teacher for 10 years. Then I bought a large ceramic studio and had 2 employees manufacturing greenware and work my butts off. I should be retired at 65 but work as a full time employee with salary at our dairy farm.

    3. Dolls house were home crafted out of cardboard boxes or shoe boxes when I was small

    Horses as smart as Wendell can prop their beautiful head on a nice pile of fragrant hay and have sweet dreams.

    Hugs for you and Wendell. Have a great week. JB

  4. What a gorgeous teapot.... wow!

    I'll join you tomorrow with my answers - I always enjoy our chats :)

    Oh, we have no snow either, but we have no warmth either!...x

  5. That is a really pretty teapot. :) Thank you for sharing the picture with us. I hope that you're having a great week!

  6. Love the teapot! I'm a cooking show "geek" myself!

  7. Your teapot is so very pretty. I like the touched of gold. The boys used to get a special teapot for my Hubby's mother each Christmas. My oldest said he almost got her another this year, but he realized she is short of storage space!

    $55 for a tea cup - cough*splutter*blargh!!

  8. I think Wendell was dropping you a hint on the blanket, Patrice. He's beginning to sound like, If you give a mouse a cookie..., you better keep on your toes! =D

  9. Your teapot is so-o pretty. I agree that that's a lot of money for a teacup, though.
    I love the dollhouse from a bookcase - very creative!
