Cutie-Pie (212/365)


The Bride: Where's Bill?
Buck: Please stop hitting me...
The Bride: WHERE'S BILL?
Buck: I-I don't know who Bill is!
The Bride: BULLSHIT!
Buck: Well, ain't you the little slice of cutie pie they said you were. "Jane Doe," huh? Well, we don't know shit about you, huh? Well, I'm from Huntsville, Texas. My name is Buck, and I'm here to fuck, ha-ha-ha...

PLACE: Home Sweet Home
SUBJECT: Cutie-Pie

I bought this teapot on my St. Louis road trip. Sujomi took me to a flea market my last day in town. I saw this teapot and had to have her. When I asked about the price, I made a mental note that if she was $10 or less, she'd be mine. She was $10.

I did a little research today and learned that she is quite the collectible. Made by a company called Napco (National Potteries Corporation) that started up in 1939 in Cleveland, Ohio. She's worth quite a bit more than I paid for her, but I don't love her for her monetary value, I love her because she's a Cutie-Pie!
