A Teapot shop front - Part one

Hello dear readers,

For making this little project I use a small, rectangular shallow wood box.  It originally contained delicious dried figs.  Alas, can't  be found  anymore on the market but I saved some empty boxes.
I never throw away wooden boxes no matter what size.

Here is a photo of  one of my hanging shops.  The following photos will show how I make them.

First thing I do is drill two holes to thread a wire for hanging the box.  I make sure it's right in the middle so that the box will hang straight.

After installing shelves made from tongue depressors,  I fill them with mechandise, usually minis in my stash and items I create myself.  This time it's going to be teapots but very small ones.  (All the  1/12" scale teapots I created last week are too large for this shop.)

There were 4 silver plated little teapots sent to me by  blog friends.  I had to add more to fill up the shop's window.

Assembled some metal beads and jewelry findings as you can see in the photo below.

Glued them together.

Added white Fimo parts and baked them together.

I love the combination of shiny chrome and white ceramic.

I hope you are all having a lovely Sunday.  The best to all and blessings.



  1. So pretty! I agree, the ceramic and steel is a gorgeous combination.

  2. Que bonita tu tienda colgante. Me encantan las teteras !!!

  3. Such a clever idea to recycle the boxes and add something wonderful to look at! The teapots are as adorable as can be, and the FIMO spouts, lids and handles are fantastic!

  4. Es preciosa la tienda colgante!! Me encanta su aspecto y esas teteras de abalorios son perfectas!!!

  5. Your hanging shops are great.

  6. What a wonderful way to display miniatures... and I really like your beautiful teapots. But what I like the most is the fact that when there is a part 1 there will be a part 2 - I'm looking forward to it!


  7. Hello Drora,
    What a lovely idea and a great way to use the boxes. Your teapots are lovely and very well done. Great work.
    Big hug,
    N.B. I hope your husband is doing better

  8. Just lovely Drora and the idea of using shallow wooden boxes for your storefronts is such a great idea, as are your teapots!
