You Just Never Know….

I wonder how we survived without internet before?  Do you ever wonder?  Everything is just a few clicks away including good friends, their inspirations, their ideas…thoughts…joys… and I so love it.

I have a lot of interests and I can be quite spontaneous.  Reading everyone’s lovely blog has given me more interests, awareness and inspiration.  Remember some time back I visited Tootsie and made what I’m calling a    Teapot Part Garden Birdfeeder? 

I made one for my girlfriend’s birthday….put one in the wheelbarrow at the cottage… ….

then I had my table “adorned” with these cute little one cuppers…    Are they not sweet???? 

A lady at work thought it would be an ideal gift to take a “High Tea Wedding” and asked me to make one for her.    I decided after making one that I’d continue making the others so she would have a choice….    

   I added little tags with instructions and  adorned each one with an organza bag of birdfeed…     and brought them all in to work.   Everyone just thought they were so cute and I sold them all.   I was sooo surprised and happy that others had the same response to them as I did.  I ended up with 7 additional orders.  The fun turned into some profit along the way.  You just never know….

  1. Looks like this is a winning idea! I think so.

  2. I am not surprised Judi, they are gorgeous..I just wish we were closer so I could find you teapots etc.

    Do you think they could be sold on etsy or would the shipping and possible breakages put you off? People do seem to sell breakables but am not confident myself with shipping breakables.

    Hope you are feeling better now.

  3. You are so industrious and talented. I am excited about the internet, too, but I haven’t discovered any way for me to make money from it. Alas, I will be substitute teaching tomorrow to make my extra money. Have a nice evening.
