|The rubber band creates a great cool gripping surface!|
There is a white rubber band next to the teapot that I used to replace the pink one.
I felt a bit guilty desecrating the lovely teapot with a rubber band until I reminded myself it was best for the safety of the tea pot.
I'm very hard on teapots and have broken all but one. I want to take very good care of this new tea pot that Mary G. gave me.
I knocked the handle off the last teapot and broke the lid of the one before that. I try not to remember the other teapot disasters.
This teapot lid was always in danger of being dropped when it was hot and even when cool because the glaze is smooth (beautiful glaze) I had trouble keeping a grip on it.
It may not look beautiful, but the teapot lid has a much better chance of survival.
I wonder if there is a market for little chicken toppers made out of rubber band stuff?
