Soooo, although Mother's day is not over a week gone, I thought I would share with you the presents I made for my mothers (yes, plural).
I got the idea for these presents from an issue with Homemaker, however I didn't realise how difficult teapots were to find. I really liked the idea of vintage teapots, so started scouring the local charity shops. In the two months I was looking, I managed to find two that I liked - I think I only managed to find four throughout the whole search, but the others were too flowery and I just didn't like them.
After about a month of looking, I came across a lovely blue and white teapot in my local St Gemma's hospice shop. I thought that it would be perfect for my step-mother (non-wicked) immediately bought it and then it spent another month sat on my kitchen table while I resumed the search.
It was from this teapot that I took my flower colour scheme. I knew that I wouldn't be able to get blue flowers, so decided that white was the way to go.
The Saturday before Mother's day I was getting pretty desperate for my teapots and had one last shop at the charity shops. St Gemma's came up trumps again for me with the little tiny teapot. I thought this would be perfect for my fairy godmother's present. My godmother is a tiny five foot minus one, and lives in a gorgeous little cottage, so I thought that the little teapot was perfect.
