Other people’s junk is my treasure
I rescue old teapots for a few dollars
give the old memories a new coat
extend their life in my cupboard
perhaps they will reach a distant future
riddled with robots and machines
and they will tell of a life gone by
when humans were humans
when they were civilized
and when they knew how to smile.
I got the above sugar and cream set during my last foray in a thrift shop for $3.00. I thought they were perfect with the teapot that I got from a yard sale for about $5.00 or less about three years ago.
They are not an exact match, but I think they look pretty together. I do not know why I love these old, and sometimes, cracked and chipped, teapots. I guess, apart from their external beauty, they remind me of a gracious era.
Thank you for coming by. 🙂 Happy weekend.
