So my Aunt Jane and I were at the Salvation Army thrift store in nearby Carrollton last weekend when I spotted what I thought was a lidless teapot on the back of a shelf of housewares. The color palette kind of reminded me of Cath Kidston, so I reached for it to see if I could determine the maker.
When I pulled it forward, I was surprised to realize that although this unmarked piece was the size of an average teapot, it wasn’t a lidless teapot after all but instead had such a wide opening that this was probably supposed to be a planter. I’ve seen large teapot planters and small teapot planters, but it occurred to me I’ve not seen one the size of an actual teapot.
And for the happy price of $1.80, I decided this one needed to come home with me!
