The other day I got a comment on my Teapot Story post, which I'd written almost exactly a year ago to the day. A very kind person (please tell me who you are so I can thank you properly) tipped me off that there was a teapot lid for sale on ebay. I bid. I won. I'm guessing there aren't that many people searching for a 1950s/'60s Wedgwood Summer Sky teapot lid, sans teapot out there?
The lid arrived today - as I ripped open the package like a greedy child I felt sure it would be the wrong lid, it wouldn't fit, or would be the wrong colour.
But it wasn't! My teapot is now justly re-crowned. I feel sure that had my granny known the Internet existed before she died, she would thank it now and marvel at the magic of it.
I raise my teacup to you Internet - you're too good to me - and what a perfect 21st century ending to the 'ol teapot story.
