Tea Party Repurposed

Besides glass beadmaking, singing, reading, and walking the beach, one of my favorite things to do (ok one more ~ drinking a nice hot cup of tea), is to seek out beautiful orphan tea cups and saucers.  

Ah, here's a fine specimen:  Dainty pink flowers (my fav), with gold trim.  Love the graceful curve of the handle!

Such teacups will be repurposed by me, and made to adorn yards and gardens with not only visual purpose, but practicality...

Teacup Birdfeeders!

Hey, the birds deserve a Tea Party!  They spend their days serenading us and destroying pests; let's offer them a treat served up beautifully:

for a really "tweet" tea party!  Be sure to check in

tomorrow as I'll shed some light on a new and different repurpose of tea cups.  It will turn your views 'upside down' and I promise:  You will be both enlightened and delighted!


  1. Cis, these are so purdee- those birdies are having their own tea party

  2. Cynthia how does one make this tea bird feeder? If you would like to tell?
