I'm joining Terri at Artful Affirmations with this teacup for Teacup Tuesday, Elizabeth and Bleubeard for T Stands for Tuesday and Tea Time Tuesday:
This lovely cup had been my grandmother's. See what looks like dirt around the bottom rim of the cup? The cup had been glued to the saucer. Why?? I fiddled a bit and discovered that whatever held it together was still mallable. I carefully picked it away and the cup came free. There was a big green mound of this stuff under the cup-still somewhat soft. My hubby determined it was probabaly plumber's putty. Imagine, after all these years I was able to loosen it easily-and thankfully. Now I can enjoy it with tea :).
