What a deal!
I was at my favorite thrift shop in town the other day and saw this portly teapot – pretty in a pale pink with molded butterflies and flowers circling its body – right there on the shelf, the lid securely taped on with a killer price – $5.00!
Turning it over, I saw it was decidedly a deal – A Lenox Butterfly Meadow teapot!
Of course, I grabbed it right away – perfect for a Tuesday tea post or even better – Pink Saturday!
It wasn’t until I got home that disappointment flooded my heart as I peeled the tape from the lid to find – it was damaged!
Emeline was aghast!
Apparently, there had been a little butterfly attached that was all too easily broken off. Hence, this lovely pot finding its way onto a thrift store shelf for a measly $5.00.
Not, to fear! I can fix this! I’m crafty! I’ll just replace the butterfly!
So, what do you think?
Rhubarb thinks not.
Okay, okay . . . I can see that looks a little cheap. Maybe I should go the floral route?
Buzz is bemused. Not quite the cup of tea, you say?
Ribbons! That’s what it needs! Perhaps a ribbon?
Nutkin says, “Nu-uh!”
Nut enough? I can tulle it!
Emeline is NOT amused.
So, what? Do you guys have a better idea?? Emeline gathers the gang for a quick brainstorm session.
Putting their heads together, they come up with a doozy of a plan . . .
What? That’s all my ideas rolled into one! It looks like a teapot wearing all the makings of a millinery masterpiece – all at the same time.
Well, at least they’re pleased – Emeline, Nutkin, Rhubarb, and Buzz.
After all, they’re the ones who have to share a display shelf with the teapot. Might as well make everyone happy. Although, now that you’ve gussied up your new teapot pal – she’s kinda hogging all the display attention – don’t-cha think?
Hmmmm . . . Emeline didn’t consider THAT!
Hm m m m m . . .
