Mrs Teapot


Date acquired: not sure, many many years ago

Some would call me a hoarder, but I like to think I'm an appreciator of cute collectibles. I met this little darling many years ago, it was either at Glebe or Rozelle markets, I really cannot remember.

What I did remember was how she caught my eye the moment I saw her. She was with among a table of junk and dust, waiting for a new home to go to. The man minding the stall was quite a character, I had to convince him that I'll look after her before he could decide whether to sell her to me or send me home empty handed.

As you can tell, he approved and after all these years and many house moves, Mrs Teapot is still with me. She now resides above the kitchen cupboard, watching over me, reminding to stop and have a tea break.

Emotional worth: 3.5 stars
