Tea for 2 Thrifty Makeover
I didn't plan it, but I think I'm a silver tea pot collector. This is the 2nd one I found at a thrift store and I couldn't resist it's charm, or the price. I knew I could use it for something.
The tea cups and saucers were way on the other side of Goodwill. There was only 2 that matched, but what a perfect set for 2 this made!
I got it home, and made tea in my favorite tea cup that looks nothing like these. No way was I using my finds for tea!!! I wanted to repurpose them...I wanted to make them over...but how?
Just buy $9 roses, that's how!! These lasted 2 weeks in our foyer on our black stereo console up against our silver platter wall. I hope you'll come see!

LINDA on Aug 07, 2017I, too, accidentally became a Silver teapot collector...just since February when my husband spotted a gorgeous tipping teapot ...I had to have it...and since then, I've found so many gorgeous different shapes. Another beautiful treat is painting the teapot...in say a vintage pink or rose or green or ivory then stencil, tole paint or apply water decals with a rose pattern, talk about unique and a conversation piece! Love your idea!!
