It’s true that teapots come in all shapes and sizes. It is also true that sometimes things happen to our beloved teapots and a spout gets broken or a lid goes missing.
The teapot on Teapot Tuesday today was one that was left in our house (along with a lot of other items) when we rented it out while we lived in Australia. I could not bear to part with any teapot regardless of the sometimes bad feelings I harbored toward our renters so I repurposed the little guy over the years to be used for various things. Recently he was the perfect home for some of my succulents that were in need of a new habitat.
Pretty cute little thing, don’t you think? And a great way to use a teapot that is less than perfect. Add a little cactus soil with some drainage rocks and you are good to go. There is nothing like these little “hen and chicks” when it comes to easy growing.
Surely a pretty woman never looks prettier than when making tea. – Mary Elizabeth Braddon
