Sometimes things don’t go exactly as planned. Today was one of those days and as a result my Teapot Tuesday is a bit broken up.
I ordered a really sweet crystal teapot from Ebay. It was not expensive and looked to be a beautiful find for the price and I was thrilled to find the package in the mail when I arrived home from Lakeside.
But, as is often the case when fragile items are shipped, it arrived broken. I heard the tinkle of the glass when I opened the package. Actually I was surprised that only the lid was broken after looking at the condition of the package that came from China.
Obviously a little more care was needed in handling this one and hopefully the claim I put in today will be paid in full. I am trying to think of ways to repurpose it because the teapot itself is beautiful and it will be used somehow –just have to find the right use.
Any ideas? Let me know in the comments and remember it all goes for our June Comments for a Cause.
“Teapot is on, the cups are waiting,
Favorite chairs anticipating,
No matter what I have to do,
My friends, there’s always time for you.”
