This project was inspired by one of my favorite designers.... Janis Gurney. I used an old teapot that was losing its gold coloring. I used Rub & Buff but it turned out blotchy. Alas, I decided to continue....

For the pouring out effect, I used broken gold and pearl necklaces and a beaded trim. At the ends I attached (with stretch lastic cording) a pin cushion, small frame and another smaller pot. Finally, I embellished with ribbon and a broken earring I got from that found travel case (as noted in Just What The Junker Ordered post).

I wish my photo graphs could really display how That Girl,
