Grandma Williamson's girlhood china
The next Everyday Matters drawing challenge on the list is to draw a teapot. Rather than draw my daily use teapot or kettle, I chose to draw Bill's grandmother's toy china. The teapot looks a bit more like a coffee server in shape, but I'm calling it a teapot anyway. These mis-matched bits of hand-painted china rimmed with gold leaf were probably old when Grandma received them to play with as a young girl. She grew up to have only sons, followed by mostly sons in the next generation. Which probably explains why these are in such good shape.
