This cheerful yellow teapot, which was an extra teapot, now has a very important job. I learned this while at our daughter's home visiting. This teapot is filled with sugar and we just pour some out the spout when we have our tea or coffee. Its very handy. If you've never tried it you might like the convenience of it, I I'm very busy tonight, making my second collage. I like the first one soooo much, I'm off to make a second one. Tonight is a stay at home night, and I love these relaxing evenings at home. We had sausage links and waffles for supper and I've got a meatloaf in the oven. It will come in handy for lunch sandwiches tomorrow...and then some. I must keep going or the evening will have disappeared..and my cello is patiently waiting for me. Here is just a little part of a verse that spoke to me. I bought this book of poems at Barnes & Noble Booksellers one afternoon. As I read bits and parts of the different poems....this book said to my heart, as plainly as could be...take me home with you, buy me and I'll be good company for you through the years. = ) Its hard to refuse an offer like that! "Whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely......think on these things". Philippians Chapter 4, verse 8. What a great 'yardstick' for our lives to be measured by, to be molded for Jesus.


Stay, stay at home, my heart and rest;

Homekeeping hearts are happiest,

For those that wander they know not where,

Are full of trouble and full of care;

To stay at home is best....Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

If I didn't already have several sugar bowls that match my existing dinner sets, I would bring my spare teapot down from the top cupboard and do that, Maggie! What a neat idea. Sausage links and waffles for tea - you have anything on the waffles? Like maple syrup..(mouth watering).
