Tale of a Teapot

I'm hooking up to My Cottage Charm's "Treasures and Trinkets" today! She recently picked up a beautiful Haviland teapot at a garage sale which reminded me of one of my favorite teapots. That lemon beauty there, hiding behind Francis, was picked up for just a few dollars at Goodwill shortly after Earl and I split. I loved it because it was the perfect accompaniment to my "make lemonade" attitude that I was cultivating in myself.

Sadly, I didn't have it for long. It met every teapot's worse fear...my son, Max! That's alright- I kept the pieces and plan to use them for a mosaic that is "brewing" on the back burner!

  1. Sorry Max got the best of your teapot, but it was pretty while it lasted and I'm sure it will be beautiful in a mosaic! :) I have a stained glass chandelier that I've been thinking about taking apart and using for a mosaic....just not sure what I want to mosaic! I took it down and replaced it with the chandelier I redid. (if you want to see it, it's about 4 or 5 posts back.)
    Thanks for linking up to my party today, so glad you could come! :)
