Teapot Stop!

 We left Hungry Howie's Pizza Parlor and next to it in the mall parking lot was a carnival. I drove past because it was daylight and it was closed. Just as we passed it I slammed on the brakes and backed up screaming "LOOK its a TEAPOT"     and so it Was! and so it IS HERE!
“Do you think I've gone round the bend?"
"I'm afraid so. You're mad, bonkers, completely off your head. But I'll tell you a secret. All the best people are.”  Lewis Carrol, Alice in Wonderland 
 “If you set to work to believe everything, you will tire out the believing-muscles of your mind, and then you'll be so weak you won't be able to believe the simplest true things.”
 “She generally gave herself very good advice, (though she very seldom followed it).”
 “One of the deep secrets of life is that all that is really worth the doing is what we do for others.”
  “Begin at the beginning and go on till you come to the end; then stop”
 “I know who I WAS when I got up this morning, but I think I must have been changed several times since then”
“Who in the world am I? Ah, that's the great puzzle.”   The MadSnapper that is WHO....

I love that teapot! That looks like a fun ride but I'm guessing when it's over you would be as confuses as the Mad Hatter or March Hare, or at least I would. I'd probably still take the ride.

But were you mad enough to have a ride in a teacup?

Catherine said...

Great post.
That tea pot would look great by the pool.
I would like to thank all of your blog followers for the Birthday wishes yesterday. I hope you did not tell them how old I am.

Wasn't Lewis Carrol a thought-provoking writer?

Alice was the wisest chick in Wonderland.

Cool post. Good pictures and saying. I like Lewis Carol's quotes.
Love you, Madeline

George said...

Thank you for both the quotes and the great pictures. The MadHatter has nothing on the MadSnapper.

Now I am nuts over the teapot, did you add your little artistic touch with the smoke? HUM????

I would love to have that pot in my backyard.. what a cool place to hang out.

Sandy said...

Love, love, love that steaming teapot.
I realized that I have never read, actually read Alice in Wonderland.
I definitely think I need to do that. Your quotes are very enticing.

SweetMarie said...

Love the teapot! This was one of my favorite rides at Disney when I was a kid. I don't do ferris wheels, way too high for me. These are such happy colors!
I completely agree with George, Madhatter has nothing on Madsnapper!
Hope you're having a great Monday!

I love these photos of that teapot, thank you for sending me the photos to use for my meeces ^_^ I have already [almost] finished my 1st mice drawing for this week, plus another ordinary boat drawing. I have so many ideas, that I need to straighten them out and put them down on the paper.
Have a great day!

Debra Dickinson said...

Oh what beautiful, crisp photos! That teapot would make a great stamp/sticker for embellishing! :) Love the Alice touch.

Ann said...

I love the teapot and I love the cups. I think that would be just the right size for my morning coffee :)
Great quotes too.

You know some day I wish I could have real tea with you!

Love this quote:
“Do you think I've gone round the bend?"
"I'm afraid so. You're mad, bonkers, completely off your head. But I'll tell you a secret. All the best people are.” Lewis Carrol, Alice in Wonderland

Happy Valentines Day.
