TEACUP BIRDFEEDER/CHIINA PLATE WIND CHIME
It All Started
With a Tea Party!
When Karen Skillett decided on a vintage tea party theme for a wedding shower she was hosting, she had no idea it would send her on a quest to "rescue" vintage dishes from thrift shops and antique stores!!
A current trend is to declutter and simplify. In the process of doing this, donations of china, silver plate, and crystal are increasing. Karen brings new life to discarded treasures by bringing them to the outdoors! Teacups become precious bird feeders, while spoons and plates become decorative wind chimes!
For Karen's spring FTSG workshop, she brings the idea of celebrating High Tea (complete with Scones, biscuits, finger sandwiches and British tea) and combining it with some great crafts that are suitable for ages 10 and up. As you eat and sip tea from vintage china, you will complete two crafts -- a vintage teacup bird feeder, AND a vintage spoon and plate chime.
This is a great workshop for friends to enjoy together as a "Girl's Night Out" and makes a great Mother's Day gift! Consider signing up with your mom for a fun multi-generational celebration!
