They are the things that we reach for and use over and over again and would be miserable without.  That's my trusty Brown Betty teapot.  It's not much to look at but brews and pours a perfect cuppa, spot on with no drippies.  Perfection. A classic.

Between my daughter and myself we have dozens of these things. The sad part of it is, neither of us wear them outside of the house. We just use them to clip up wet hair or to pull our hair back quickly when cooking or cleaning.
