Happily Ever After Story For An Antique Urn

There once was a very old giant urn.  It had led a vibrant life holding gorgeous flowers for well-to-do people over a hundred years ago.  But time and weather had aged the urn.  An accident had caused it to break off of it's pedestal.  It ended up half buried in a field, covered in weeds. Sigh.

A humble junk collector happened to go to a garage sale near the home of the urn.  She asked about the urn and the owner had a dim recollection of seeing it near the driveway.  Sure, he would sell it for a few bucks (and good luck loading it!) 

The junk collector persuaded several burly men to help her load the urn, along with all of the broken pieces, into her van. 

She had lofty plans of restoring the urn to it's original glory, but it was beyond her skills as a healer.  So it just sat in her yard and continued to look sad.

Until one day a very brave prince and princess saw the poor urn as they were driving by in their carriage. They stopped at the house to ask if they could take the urn home with them.  They knew that with patience and their special healing skills they could resurrect it to a new life.

Because of the prince and princess, the giant urn is beautiful and regal again.
(Special thanks to the princess for sending me these "after" photos of the urn.)
Just another "happy ever after" junk story.
