No...you're not seeing double. Sara & I went to an antique store last week and I bought this second M.E. teapot. When they were ringing it up Sara said, "Don't you have one just like that at home?" I replied, "yes", but that I was planning on changing thisone up a bit. She just shrugged her shoulders and said, "Hmm." Note: I paid (around) $38.00 for the first one at a very nice boutique several years ago. This second one only cost me $8.00. However, there is a little chip in the base, but that didn't bother me because I was planning on painting over it anyway. SO...let the fun begin! I chose red nail polish for the new flower color. And black enamel paint for the new polk-dots and base color. NOTE: The nail polish worked so much better. I ended up having to paint clear nail polish over the black. For the big polka-dots I used a pencil eraser.
And I used the ball of a sewing pin for the little polka-dots.
Cute little cousins now. : ) One last photo with the flash so you can see how bright the red really is. DO try this at home. : )
Actually about that PHOTO! Sara was taking candid photos one night while the whole Fam was at Chick-fil-A. I decided to use it because it made me look younger. When my married daughter ,Emily, saw it she said ever so sweetly (really), "Ah Mom, you're not wearing any make-up in that photo." I said, "Yeah, but it makes me look younger than I am." I chose younger with no make-up as opposed to older (with) make-up. Go figure. I'm vain ok?
