New Totems and Garden Stakes

dollydee(7-MS)July 18, 2010

Finally got around to doing my teapot totems and a few stakes.

I found these two cups at a YS yesterday for 50 cents each..I'm playing around with different pieces for the right fit for their bodies. Any suggestions?

Very Nice!! You have really been busy. I love everything. Beautiful teapot totems. You really have a knack for grouping and matching. I love all the stakes too. What a find to get the man and woman mugs and how cute they turned out. I bet you now have some space at the dining room table (lol). Thanks for sharing these. Great job.

You have been busy! I love your teapot totems. You got them to fit together very nicely. The "mugs" are adorable and look great as totem people. I really like the amber totem for the garden stake. Great job on all of them! (I hope you have a big garden that they will all fit in!)

Wow! You have been busy dolly! You have some really pretty teapots there and they made delightful totems! Love the smaller "stake" ones too. Do you have any trouble with those being top heavy?

Your tea cup totem people are really cute too! Love all your colored glass as well...great job! TFS!

Wow, at they are all wonderful and so, so many. I can never find teapots cheap enough. The man and woman are super cute. Are all those for you, are you having a sale?

OMG those are the cutest tea pots I've ever seen. I never see them at GS or ES here either! You did a great job on all of them. I like the green totem too. TFS.

Your totems are truly lovely.....and I own that exact set of 'ma and pa' cups with the saucers as hats....they belonged to my mother who passed away several years ago. I have always thought they were just so unique but I do not think I will ever put them in the yard since I know for a fact that they are at least 50 years old, if not more.... I wish I could find the goodies you guys seem to find at GS and TS etc....all I seem to find is literal junk or common everyday cast aways... I have been searching for going on a year for unique pieces for totems and plate flowers..... guess I will just have to keep on looking, lol...... keep up the great work !!
