I passed up this vintage elephant teapot a week ago at Goodwill, even though I liked it a lot. When I saw it again yesterday, at 50 percent off, I liked it 100 percent more and bought it!
I wish I knew the maker, but the only identifying mark is what may be a mold number, 2104, at the base of it. A bit of internet searching didn't turn up any further clues.
Also snagged a Missoni zigzag platter at Goodwill. It seemed the perfect colors as summer heads toward fall in a month or two.
I'm just popping in here quickly today. Posting may be light for awhile as I proofread my dad's book.
Meanwhile, work continues on the string ring quilt as time allows. The black and white stop border just did not seem to work, so I went another direction, finishing the end black and white squares into the border. Now I'm piecing a narrow mini-piano key (for lack of a better description) border from the dwindling string ring scraps I have left. This will be followed by a final wider outer border of the crosshatch background fabric. The binding will be in the black with white dots again.
I am using every last bit of the crosshatch fabric, which is why the outer border isn't any bigger, but I think it will fit my bed when all is said and done!
