pRiMiTiVe anGeL coFFeePoT


I found this cute little vintage coffeepot with its original glass-knobbed lid and working parts at one of my favorite thrift stores. I love old kitchen items like this.... they have such a history when they come your way. I wonder how many cups of coffee were brewed in this little gem and how anyone could bear to part with it.


I gave it a new life and purpose with this adaptation of a Terrye French design. The angel on the pot is so perfectly prim with her saltbox house, pear, crow and bittersweet twigs. The teapot lid reminds us to "Count Our Blessings."
