The teapot tree

I discovered something quirky on my travels recently. About 15 minutes out of town I spotted this tree, looks ordinary right?


Well on closer inspection as I drove past I saw that it was literally covered in different kinds of teapots.


I don't know why but I think it's a really neat idea and I think the person that owns the property is some sort of artist as they had different artwork and sculptures in their yard.

What a quirky find that tree is, certainly something unusual.

Art is, after all, subjective! But what a unique and fun idea!

Well how about that! This is the second quirky tree I've seen in the space of ten minutes Amy, check out Tom's post 😉 The teapots are prettier 💜

That is fascinating. I found a tree full of guitars a couple of years ago but it was in front of a shop that sold them. I wonder what the story is here.

How wonderfully quirky! We have a teacup lady who has them all over her front porch and grass.

It's great to see your link at 'My Corner of the World' this week!

Love it. The name Teapot Tree has such a nice sound to it.
