A Little Teapot

                                                     I'm a little teapot, short and stout
                                                      Here is my handle
                                                            Here is my spout
                                                      And my lid.
                                             And my flowerbed.


“You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me”
C.S. Lewis

I found this teapot house in Lexington Virginia on the edge of a busy highway. It used to be a restaurant, then a house, and now I think it is empty. Would YOU like to live here?


“He continued, “Go home and prepare a feast, holiday food and drink; and share it with those who don’t have anything: This day is holy to God. Don’t feel bad. The joy of God is your strength!”
Nehemiah 8

Well isn't that cute. I don't know if I would want to live in that all the time but maybe as a little get away when I want to escape from reality.

It's definitely cute, but to live there? No, I don't think it's my cup of tea. HaHa! I just had to say that!!

Oh my gosh, that is so cute. Too bad it is empty now but from the looks of the flower bed someone must be taking care of it. I wouldn't like the busy highway but I would like to live in the house.

I think it would be very easy to describe this house to someone who was coming for a visit. Actually, I think it is rather cute.

LC said...

How unusual. It makes me sad no one is loving it now.
