Broken Heart = Teacups

My heart is broken and tears of sadness fell. I accidentally hit the corner of my teacup shelf this morning. The shelf tipped and all my beautiful teacups slid off and onto the floor smashing into a zillion pieces. What hurt the most was the loss of my great grandmothers’ and my grandmothers’ teacups. These special heirlooms can never be replaced. If you read my teacup story you understand my grief. 


  1. I am so sorry to hear this. I once had a box of old teacups given to me by a friend, and many were broken when my husband was not careful when he brought the box down from the attic. I was extremely upset, but that would not have been a fraction of what you must feel at the loss of family heirlooms.

  2. I am sorry for your loss. Maybe you could keep some of the bigger pieces and make a mosaic or something. I know it isn't the same, but at least it would be something.

  3. What a devastating loss! I am so sorry to hear this. I wish there were something to bring them all back in one piece...
