So when we moved to Florida in 1958 and Mom unpacked the beloved teapot it was shattered all but the lid remained. My Mom cried over the loss of the teapot but I think it was more about the loss of Sarah than the cobalt teapot, however my mom kept the lid to the pot.Over the years Mom had a cuppa Tea with many other friends with many different teapots.
After Mom and then Dad died I was cleaning out the kitchen drawers and there in the drawer in the back was the glow of bright blue, the lid in perfect condition. I sat the lid on a shelf with many other memento's of sweetness and joy. Went to my computer and e-bay to see if I could find a teapot to complete the memory. There among all the hundreds of teapots was one cobalt tea pot same design as Moms "Cobalt blue teapot - Hall # 0783 /6 cup teapot perfect condition Lid broken Buy it now $5.00. I bought it as fast as I could push the buttons.
I was elated as far as I was concerned it WAS "Mom's" Teapot and I reunited her lid to the perfect teapot and it has a place of great honor in my kitchen and always will. So does the broken lid. This is a still life I set up with the Teapot and her cup and lemons Sarah is with my Mom and not available.
I used another shot of this flower for my students to paint from in my class. It gave me an idea of where they were in ability because they all started at this same place. I could better access what they needed to go forward in the class.
This was my inspiration Stargazer Lilly also because my parents were an inspiration to me.

I always kept my camera on the kitchen island close by because the two furry kids that lived in my house were always up antics that were cute photo opps so I grabbed the camera and got this shot. I always wanted to paint it and finally 12 years later I painted it. His name is Bo Bo aka Zuki but he was also known as "The Thief" because any unattended food was fair game for him... Don't even ask about the one Christmas I put dinner on the formal dining table and went into the family room and out to the patio call everyone to the table...
So I finished the painting on April 30th of this year putting it in a show where the original sold immediately but prints are available.
Bo Bo died this past Friday of a huge malignant tumor in his stomach. (I swear the ex-ray resembled a candy bar!) He is terribly missed because he was so well loved but his pain was too much for him too bear and he has gone to the rainbow bridge to wait for me, Thank God I still have his younger furry brother "Marley" aka Budgie to lavish love on. With Marley fruit is not safe to leave lying around.
