A couple of weeks ago I heard a crash come from our living room, which isn’t necessarily an unfamiliar sound in our house. Things break and I sweep them up and move on without making to big of a fuss. Well, I turned the corner into the living room to ask “What broke?” and saw the lid to my treasured blue and white tureen in pieces. It looked ever so sad scattered about the hardwood floor.
I won’t go pointing any fingers since this mishap involved some fun fetch with Paisley — I’m a softy when it comes to Miss Paisley. Fetch is one of her all time favorite playtime activities so I’m always glad when she cons someone into throwing the rope around the living room for her to chase like a wild one. Of course it’s better when pretty little blue and white china lids don’t end up broken all over the floor. But, all is forgiven!
So I looked around a bit on etsy for a replacement with no luck. I almost threw out the entire tureen, but it’s one of my favorites and it brings back memories of a great day last winter! So I stuffed it into the china hutch and decided to use it as a vase for short nubby flowers from the garden. There’s really not much blooming out there right now, but I did manage to find a few bright pink blooms and a few sprigs of mint.
I’ll keep on the look out for another blue and white tureen, but I like to find a good deal ya know!
