Can You Guess?

Yesterday I found something at the Goodwill. It is really quite goofy. I'll bet you don't have one. Can you guess what it is? Here is another angle

Does this clue help?
Did you guess that it was a teapot? It is such a silly thing but it just caught my fancy. It would be great for a mad hatter's tea party. It holds about 4 cups of tea. As I was holding it a little girl, pointed to it and with a big smile said, "Look at the teapot Mommy!"

Now it just wouldn't be proper to pour tea from such a silly pot into a normal mug.
I just happened to have this one that I got last year. They make an odd couple!
On those days when I need to remind myself not to take life so seriously I will pour tea from my egg teapot into my little peasant girl mug. If you need an escape from the stress of life for a little while, just stop by and pour yourself a cup of tea. Maybe it will cheer you up too!
I just picked up a copy of this book so I'm going to sit down and enjoy it while I try out my new teapot..
What a lovely way to spend some time on a Saturday afternoon!
I hope you get time to relax and enjoy yourself this weekend.

  3. What a silly, fun teapot and cup! They are so funny I just sat and smiled! Good for those days we all need to remember to laugh a bit. Thanks for the invite - I'll be over soon to be cheered up by your hugs, our chat and a cup of tea from the silly pot.

    I want to get the new blog book, too. Can't wait to find it soon.
