I can't resist teapots and teacups
The first thing you will notice about anyone who adores shabby chic is the automatic response to teapots and teacups. The vintage teapots and teacups draw the eye with the softer pastels and floral patterns. For someone like me, finding one of these treasures sends me into a buying frenzy.
Now I have a collection of teapots and teacups that cover several surfaces of my house that make me happy but collect dust. It is time to repurpose and give as gifts to those who would appreciate them. I have found several tutorials and pictures that might generate even more ideas.
