This is another giveaway with a difference, its not the shawl no its the "teapot" isn't it sweet. its about 400 years old and I dug it up from the forest of Narnia when I was there on a "save the whale" weekend in 1994, I wasn't "Saving the whale" at the time, but they had a great line up of half price wellies.
Anyhow, while I was foraging around in "never neverland" I happened upon this 500 year old pot! I glued it all together and found to my delight it was still in perfect working order, Oh, happy days, we had nettle tea and some other stuff that made you feel like the forest was moving in weird ways, then found out you were slightly attracted to a Whale called willy, I dated him for 3 weeks before I realised that actually I couldn't swim, so I was forced to end that relationship. Luckily the pot survived, now sadly to draw a line under the heartbreak of my "Holiday romance" and with regret I'm putting it up for grabs.
So this 600 year old teapot may adorn your table. All you have to do is leave witty comment or two.

I hope your all well and truly shabbied.

Barking, crackers, loop the loop, and nuts with it.
What a fabulous shape to that teapot, and what an incredible history it has had. I've always wanted to own something that's 400 years old! Wasn't that the time of the Stuarts?!

The best thing about 700yearold teapots is the markings. Narnia's forest has long been a favourite with hunters of ancient pottery and such. I can just see this 800yearold teapot sitting on my sideboard (yet to be brought up from the depths of the Yartroll lake nearby) filled with the most delicious dandylion and stinger brew.

XXXXXXXXXX
