But it was several years before I began collecting them. In 2002, two years after she died, when I was the throes of interior decorating and would scour decorating magazines as if my life depended on it, I saw a teapot collection and I feel in love.

Some pieces of my treasured collection sit on top of my upper kitchen cabinets with my three wooden mortar and pestle pieces.
