Teapots in the Flower Bed

I haven't shared my garden teapots.  The blue flowered one was a Christmas gift for my AZ sister.  She had visited friends in CA and they had these teapots and cups in their garden.  We had already made the teacup bird feeders (with the help of DH) in the summer but hadn't thought of adding the teapots.    Again my DH came to my rescue and drilled holes in the teapots.  I had found an old towel rack at the thrift store.  I took it apart and we were able to use the parts as rods to hold the teapots.  I plan to have silk ivy climbing up the rod but just haven't gotten around to it.  I purchased both teapots at Dollar Days at  Goodwill.  I found a funky bird teapot at the Salvation Army Thrift Store last week and plan to make a garden teapot for my friend Corri.  Just have to wait until DH recovers from his heart procedure. 

 My flowers continue to bloom but I did have to cover them the past few evenings because we had a freeze warning here in the desert.  Strange weather.  Warmer in New York Time Square on New Years Eve than at the Fiesta Bowl Block Party in Tempe.

Your teapots are so cute, Pam. I love your word for the year-Rejoice is wonderful. Looking forward to seeing what you're up to in 2011!
