Whats in the Left Hand?

So…can you guess what I’ve been up to the past couple of days???   Ladies, lower your spouts up with your handles and  the tea time race is on!  Thats what these teapot set garden feeders remind me of.      While it was so difficult for me to blog  and even utter very much in the way of comments because I couldn’t type…it was not so difficult for me to drill with my left hand and so I did!  I’ve been happy to have been able to keep thrifting these one cup teapot/teacup sets.  I’ve been surprised how these particular items are constantly replenished at the thrift shop.  It seems they are wayyy more popular wth me than with people who own them.  

My best girlfriend and her hubby are taking a 2 week trip from Canada through the States and then eastern Canada.  They’ll be spending a night or 2 with us this weekend so I thought I would make one for her belated birthday.     So, there’s one for me….. one for my wheelbarrow at Marcs…one for my mother…one for my girlfriend.  I just don’t know which one to give her.  What do you think? 

I wanted to show you my cabinet with the ruby band diamond point set, I found while thrifting recently, which is at the front along with a recent ebay Spode plate “Woodman”.   

A friend gave me the lovely red crystal Christmas tree ornament sitting in the vintage candy dish a few years ago.  I treasure it and it hasn’t made it on the tree yet.

I hope you have a simply lovely day.

Teapot Set Garden Party Ornament and Sewing Saturday

I have had a really fun day with me today.  It has been a beautiful sunny and hot Saturday and in between working on projects I’ve been out there galavanting  First I have finished the Geisha Girl Bag/Tote which is a possible custom order.  This is the 2nd one I’ve made and I’ve added some medium weight fleece interfacing.  This will help the bag stay upright better and not flop over. 

She is a pretty lady Michael Miller’s Geisha Girl.  

I initially did some beading before I started the sewing.    It hightlights the ornaments in her hair.  It is a pretty bag, I love the fabric and I’m pleased with the way it turned out.

After galavanting outside for a while I decided to tackle Glenda from tootsietime‘s  teapot set garden party ornament.  I posted about her tutorial last night and thought I might like to try it myself.   I gathered up the materials, drill in hand, literally closed my eyes waiting for the teapot to explode into millions of  pieces.  Guess what?  It didn’t.  This was such a fun project I am so going to be making more…drilling more teapots…teacups…  hide your Royal Daulton ladies cuz mama’s got her drill in hand!     Isn’t it adorable?

I’m not sure what I’ll do with this one but its almost too pretty to put outdoors.  I may take it across the lake next weekend and set it into my wheelbarrow of flowers.   I still have to seal the spout to keep the bugs and wasps out. 

The cup is large and I can put birdseed into it.  Don’t you think it would be so cute to have the little birdies sitting on the cup eating?  Thank you Glenda for a new project…have a look at her site and see her lovely flowers. 

Have a lovely evening.   I’m off to babysit Madeline for the evening…
