Can you describe your process a bit? They're super cute! I'd love to make a few of my own.

Sorry to be a naughty wench and point this out... but those last two are coffee pots.  ;-)

Still, very beautiful, and very creative.  I love them!

I am so in love!!

 I see old metal tea and coffee pots at the thrift store all the time, but my teapot collection is overwhelming and I'm lucky my fiancee hasn't taken a shit over it already. maybe, just maybe....he'd be okay with something like this. Tongue

Coffee, tea, it all goes in the same hole, and out the same hole. Picky picky picky.
