It's always funny when no one has seen a new thread here and then all of a sudden, you all do and POP! We explode with the new object of our attention.

I'll just have some fun all alone until one or all of you find me. Big Grin

This is a cake but I love the idea and can see if made in a similar fashion with stacked items.

I love the teapots. I've collected pitchers for years and thought about doing something with them in the garden but some are expensive pieces and don't need to be outside. Teapots would be great. I love the idea.

Great that you came up with it.

#2 has arrived! Big Grin I don't have any tea pots but I did pick up a small coffee pot at the dumpsters last spring. DH just rolled his eyes when he saw it but I'm thinking....with a few mosaics I'd have a pretty planter. Rolling my eyes.

Now that would be so pretty. Mosaic. I have these tiny ceramic tiles, about 1/4", and I've been thinking they'd be great for a curved surface. Thought about using a tin can, but maybe a teapot or coffee pot would be the thing.

Hi Debbie! Now we are getting noisier! Big Grin

I tend to lean towards collections...maybe that is why I find the tea pots on the railing so charming.

Of course my coffee pot doesn't have a lid but since it would be used as a planter it wouldn't make any difference. Feast your eyes on these: http://www.moosaics.com/Mosaic_Teapots.html Thumbs up

Oh I like that too. All black.
Trouble is, I don't have a fence. I have a serving bar on my back deck. that might work.
Oh, I have a rail, short, but it would work.

OK, that's it.
I'm going to bed before I go out to the garage in the middle of the night and look for those old teapots.
Y'all have fun.

Fun idea! Watering cans too. And the plastic ones are easy to to poke holes in the bottom for drainage. I hadn't thought about hanging them. Lovey dubby

Even old lidless (is that a word?) sugar bowls could be hung. Too cute! The possibilities are endless.
