Salder Brown Betty

Such a handsome Sadler teapot, vintage, great character. Brown Betty with gold accents, roses and pastel flowers.
 Just the style I love to find while out thrifting.
 Setting it into the backseat - the spout fell off. It had been glued on and I hadn't noticed. Usually I check the spout, rim and base for chips. Never thought to check the spout join.
Looked at the teapot for a day or so and decided it needed a goodbye to its original use with dignity. My Thanksgiving bouquet needed to be redone. A small juice glass, vintage metal flower frog, my clippers and the flowers turned the teapot
into a vignette with the old chiming clock.
I may reattach the spout another day.

  2. Beautiful before...and gorgeous after!! I love your creativity!! I found a lidless, gorgeous teapot for a quarter not long ago...had visions of various uses but it has been used for a creamer ever since I bought it. Such a perfect size & so darned pretty that I enjoy using it! 😊 Love those bargains, don't we?!

  18. How wonderful that you turned it into another "something" of beauty rather than sitting it into the discard pile. :)

  20. I love it Joy. The teapot is wonderful! Love the colors and the roses. Using it as a vase was a clever idea. I would definately glue the spot back on someday. I just bought a frog just like that one yesterday. Thanks for sharing your creativity with SYC.
