Teapot and Sheep Pin

More treasure hunting: While I was at Westlake the other day, I popped into the Discovery Shop to see what was new. I found this ceramic teapot.

I loved the color. It looked as if it might go nicely with the blue dinnerware I'd gotten at Discovery not long ago. And it was in mint condition. 

Here's another view:

And here's a view showing what I paid for it.

Of course, I'd already stopped by Goodwill where I'd already found a few other treasures. For instance, I bought this ceramic sheep pin for a dollar.

I figure I can wear the sheep when I do presentations about Ferradiddledumday, my Appalachian version of the Rumpelstiltskin tale.  I'll wear it on August 7 at the Hanover Book Festival, where you will find me sitting at the Cedar Creek Publishing table.

I do too. I wish I knew something about it's history. It has no identifying marks at all. Not even a "made in China."
