When I was in Iowa last month, I picked up this adorable, tarnished, well loved teapot from Sister's Garden in my buddy, Brandon's, space. The hinge in the lid lost it's pin and although firmly attached, it makes it kind of wonky. So naturally, I fell in love with it. I got a custom order for a teapot recently, and after explaining the wonky issue to my customer and sending her photos of other options, she landed on this sweet teapot, too. So nice to create for someone who appreciates a little imperfection just like I do. I gravitate to it. I prefer it.
This little teapot is going into a dining room in Berkeley, California. I used a nice chunky vintage rhinestone brooch for the centerpiece.
I can see why my customer fell in love with it, look at the details in the silver plate.
