I make teapot totems from vintage teapots and teacups! Has anyone else tried these? They are really cute in the garden! My husband and I worked together to create a special connector for the teapots that works really well.

Diane, I love whimsy in the garden and your tea parties are just charming! Now I am on the lookout for teapots and cups with saucers. LOL

So if you don't mind giving out your secrets, are you gluing the pots and cups to pvc pipe?
