Tea, Anyone?

I have officially decided that no dollhouse is complete without at least one teapot. They add that perfect, finishing touch of beauty. Each delicate teapot is shiny or worn, fancy or simple.

Here are a few tiny teapots that I have made. As usual, these pieces are all handcrafted in 1/12 scale. Most of the color and design was applied by hand using acrylic paints.

I warn you, this is only the beginning of my fascination with miniature teapots!

One of my favorites. The flower design, just like all the rest, is hand painted.

The standard copper and aluminum teapots. The handle of the copper pot actually moves up and down, just like the real thing! How fun is that?
