New Treasure

I wanted to share with you a treasure I recently acquired. At first I did not pay any attention to it and passed it by as it sat on the store shelf.
Suddenly, something caught my eye and drew my attention back to the teapot. I thought why would anyone want such an embellished thing that would need great care in washing?

I picked it up to study it further but the longer I held it the more it was calling out to me. I thought this is crazy. I don't need a teapot but continued to study it further.


I was starting to fall in love with it. There is a certain feeling I get when I know my resistance is weakening and this was such an occasion. But I prevailed and was putting it back on the shelf when my hand accidentally hit the teapot lid.............

Voila! It was a piggy bank. Was I surprised? Does Santa have elves? I grabbed that teapot so quick and put it under my arm so no one could take it from me. I scurried to the cashier and out the door with the biggest smile on my face. You see, I have a soft spot for piggy banks that are unusual, types that a person would not normally see. This one made my day. Hope it made your day as well and that you enjoyed my treasure.

Great story, you could also pick out some of the elements from it to make a pincushion(s) or some creative person could use it as a basis for decorating a cake.
