Things Aren’t Always Perfect

Hi everyone!

Things break.

IMG_3371 Life can be so fragile.


We must be strong.


Pick up the pieces


Mend them the best we can.


When the princess saw the broken teacup she was so sad. She made me some flowers to make me smile!


Now it sits next to her cloche in her bedroom.


Everyday can be a blessing!

    Still cute. The flowers are lovely.

  2. Oh what a precious post. Her flowers are fabulous. Thanks tons for joining the party. Hugs, Marty

  3. Such a sweet post. I think you made sweet lemonade out of a sad little lemon.


  4. Definitely a sweet post and beautiful reminder.

  5. I just found your blog today from a blog we have in common, such a lovely post, I'm your newest follower!

  6. That girl is so sweet! You are a lucky Mama! Hugs, Linda

  7. Very sweet post. I had a beautiful teacup that was broken when I received it in the mail. I painstakingly glued it back together, and it now sits in my china hutch as a decoration. It was too lovely to throw away.

  9. She and her flowers are sweet Diann.

  10. Your pretty pink cake saver is absolutely stunning. I love it. Looks like a couple pieces of carnival glass that I have from my mom. Fabulous and your vignette is gorgeous. I still love those sweet flowers too. Thanks so much for joining the party. Hugs, Marty

  11. Oh, Diann, such a sweet little teacup and how sad it got broken. However, your little princess's flowers made it all happy again! I have a few teacups that are special to me and they too got broken but I use them in different ways and can still enjoy them.
    Thank you for joining me for tea today and thank you for your sweet comment.


  12. Awww, such sweet flowers from your sweet Princess! The mended tea cup looks great next to that amazing cloche!

  13. Sweet post and precious flowers.

  14. Such a sweet post. Your little princess has a very kind heart. Thank you for visiting and your sweet comment. Blessings, Pamela

  15. What a sweet post. The flowers are adorable.

  16. Sorry for the breakage of the lovely teacup! I hate when that happens...just for a while and that's it! goes on, lol.. The best part of it all is the flowers from your little one, so lovely and sweet, just like her. HAPPY CLOCHE PARTY!

  17. Hi Diann...Ohhhhh, you can't even tell where the cup was broken. Great job! And you are raising a daughter with a compassionate heart. Susan

  18. Awwwww too bad it broke but glad it all worked out!

  19. Bummer, but you did make a great fix out of it! Darling little cup. I'm glad you were able to save it. :)


  20. Beautiful teacup even if its broke. How sweet of your daughter to try to make everything better! Thank you for sharing this.

  21. Cute flowers from princess. And I am so happy to see that she has such a lovely cloche. Yes, things break and not always by little hands. I recently broke my cloche that had a silver de fleur on top. To badly to be fixed. I almost cried. Wish princess could have been here to make me some flowers. The teacup looks good as new.

  22. Sweet post -- full of inspiration! Reuse, recycle -- and still love! A good lesson for all of us! Happy Tea Day!

  23. Hi Diann,
    I loved your post about this lovely but unfortunate tea cup that you mended so well! And you're lucky to have such a sweet princess at home!
    I don't know if you care about makers' marks, I do :), so I can tell you that your cup was made by the prestigious German company Rosenthal in about 1910.
    Greetings from Portugal and thanks for your visit.

  24. What a sweet little post. So sorry about your broken cup but it warms my heart to know you have a little blessings giver! Oh, I remember the days! :) Her little cloche is just darling.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  25. Second website I've been on in last couple minutes to mention a cloche. I accidently dropped all the teacups my MIL gave me many years ago and painstakenly glued all the pieces back together so she wouldn't know. Her eyesight was bad so she never knew what I had done. So I empathize with your little teacup and understand exactly how you and the princess felt. Take care.

  26. I hate when I break something valuable but no thing is as important as the people in our lives, and your precious little girl is so thoughtful trying to make you feel better with her little posies!

  27. Oh, so true. Children are so wonderful for wanting to pick up the pieces. I am glad she can enjoy the cup in her room.

  28. Just love what you said. Someone taught that little girl to be kind and sensitive. So sweet of her.
    Thanks for making it a happy story instead of a sad one about a broken cup. Smiles here

  29. I hate to lose a pretty treasure but I am glad you were able to use it for the Princess! She was very thoughtful to make some flowers for it! What a great kid!
    When my kids were small and something got broken (Princess House) I always made sure they did not get hurt then swept up the pieces! PH has a great replacement policy. As long as the product is still in the catalog they will replace it at half price!
    I love that cloche too! So sweet!


Thank you for taking the time to comment! I love to hear your ideas. If you ask a question, I will answer it here in a comment back to you. Please check back! Thank you for visiting and have a wonderful day! Diann :)
