Why didn't I think of this?
I loved this idea but it would not do for our giant native birds like magpies and ravens. The Mynah birds would give them a decent whack as well so the pretty cord would have to go and fencing wire used instead. I rather like the thought of them hanging on the leafless branches for winter and I'm always resisting buying a lone cup and saucer at the op shop just because it looks pretty. I have a cupboard full of 'looks pretty' and I'm still using a chipped mug.
But here's one for Miss O'Dyne and myself for those genteel afternoon teas in spring. Wine glass tea cups with the added benefit of nosey parkers not being able to see the gin or plonk (in Miss O's case) or sometimes we do have tea. The Willow pattern is a bit heavy looking, I'd rather go for a nice Royal Albert or Aynsley. Miss O and I are nothing but class all the way.
Sheer genius this idea. Your favourite tea cup as a bracelet. Well, for me I'd have to cut up the teapot and that's the problem, the cutting up part. I suppose a tile cutter would do but knowing me I'd end up with a bucket of pretty pieces for that mosaic pathway I have also filed away as a brilliant idea.
Now I might have a chance of making this. At last count I have 7 teapots and this would look great on the Christmas table. Those cheap trees from the $2 emporium would be ideal with the added bonus of being able to use the teapot again. So many ideas, so little time.
