It’s Tuesday. It’s snowing again as I type this post and I am thinking that my snowman teapot is the perfect one to highlight on a snowy day.
I just love how cheery he looks and that cardinal on top is the perfect way to top off that top hat. Every time I look at this guy he makes me smile.
Is it snowing where you are? I am happy that this snow is not sticking and hopefully won’t ruin too many plans. Wait a minute. What plans? I am going nowhere with the Covid rate in our country on the rise again. But still – this little teapot is one that brings a smile to my face every time I bring him out at Christmas time.
“Perhaps there can be too much making of cups of tea, I thought, as I watched Miss Statham filling the heavy teapot. Did we really need a cup of tea? I even said as much to Miss Statham and she looked at me with a hurt, almost angry look, ‘Do we need tea? she echoed. ‘But Miss Lathbury…’ She sounded puzzled and distressed and I began to realise that my question had struck at something deep and fundamental. It was the kind of question that starts a landslide in the mind. I mumbled something about making a joke and that of course one needed tea always, at every hour of the day or night.” ~ Barbara Pym
