Two Dozen + Teapots - Options

Hi everyone:

So I am now the proud owner of two dozen + teapots. :) All shapes and sizes. Metal, ceramic and even porcelain....

Here's what happened. I was chatting with my neighbour about her great move from Portland to California when she happened to mention that she did not want to take her teapot collection with her. Apparnetly it was a passing thing, she sheepishly said .... :)
So I offered to take them off her hands (Super nice of her. They were for free) and lo and behold I have 20 + teapots sitting in my garage.

Does anyone have any ideas on what I can do with them? I was thinking about scattering them around my garden, inbetween my plants. I have very English cottage garden.
I hate totems so that's not an option.

Any ideas? Has anyone seen teapots used in a garden? Have pictures.

Sounds like you acquired quite a nice haul! Do a search in the GJ search bar at the top of the page and you will find all sorts of references for teapots. Birdfeeders, Birdhouses, lamps, garden stakes, etc. Pictures are there too!

RE: Two Dozen + Teapots - Options

Oh Man! I would be in Heaven! I absolutely love teapots and making teapot totems! I have also made a birdhouse from one and have a bunch more just waiting for ideas. I can't wait to see what you do with them.

Sorry that you hate totems. There's lots of really cute teapot ones on this GJ forum.

I keep two metal teapots on this patio table ...use them for watering potted plants.

Sounds like you scored big time! Good luck! Jeanne S.

do you have an herb garden? I have "herbal teapots" in my garden planted with annual herbs, and smaller ceramic teapots just as ornaments
