More views about the house...

I really enjoyed looking at my teapot collection this morning, being that it's Mother's Day. My Beautiful Daughter and I began collecting pots together when she was very little. Now, we have over 100 pots in all different locations in our house and in the gardens. This shelf was something we constructed from old shelving purchased a a second-hand shop. Just added moulding, flat black paint, and TAH-DAH!

The second photo is a view of the side yard with the bottle tree I built a year ago. I have several friends who regularly drop by to give me cool colored bottles for my tree. One of my best resources, however, is my hubby, as he likes a wide variety of vodkas that come in cool bottles...

I love teacups and teapots, too. It looks like you have some that are exquisite.

The bottle tree is fab. At school we got the children to crush aluminium drink cans and then we hung them on heavy wire inserted into a large piece of wood. They are in our courtyard and look and sound good as they move in the English weather. Just an idea. I'll try to get a photo to show you on my site.
