Whenever I'm in Brandon, Manitoba, I stop at one of my favourite places -- the Lady of the Lake Shop, Cafe and Pub. It has been a beloved gathering-place in that small prairie city for at least 20 years. My Mom, sister and I have enjoyed many happy times together at this store and restaurant in days gone by.
A couple of years ago or so, this marvelously whimsical "Teacup Truck" first appeared outside its doors . . . .
As you can see, every square inch of this old flatbed truck is covered with broken china mosaics, cups, saucers, teapots, decorative plates, china figurines, doodads, baubles and junky gewgaws!
This is my favourite side of the Teacup Truck. I hate to think of how many hours of work with a glue gun it took to create this!
Here's a couple of closeups of the driver's side fender and hood. I can make out six teapots (I think) and one pitcher . . . .
. . . and a teeny-tiny rack of billiard balls, which I love!
The Teacup Truck sits outdoors all year long in the sun, rain and snow. I'm pretty sure the vehicle doesn't run and was towed to its current location. From the Lady of the Lake website, here's a "before" photo of the Teacup Truck prior to its artistic rebirth. I believe that the woman who is waving while standing on the running board is the store owner.
