Did you catch that play on words? Treepot Tuesday? Not Teapot Tuesday.
I know – I am so witty.
Today’s teapot is one that I purchased at Teavana years ago. It is an adorable tree shape with little people carved into the trunk.
Creepy or cute? What do you think? I prefer to think it is cute but others might disagree. Whatever your take you have to agree it is a different sort of teapot.
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
