Q is for Quimper Tea Cup


aceo_quimperteacup

 

This post is a day late, (shame on me!) but as I always say, better late than never… I am not in this challenge to win anyway, I am in it for myself. To challenge myself to paint every day (which I have about done so far so… yeay me!). I did paint yesterday, I taught a watercolor class. I just didn’t paint this little gem. Anyway, the story behind this piece of hand painted Quimper  pottery is it was a gift from a lovely, beautiful, talented, loving and very patient french mama from Ellicott City, MD. She and her husband taught me my love for the french cuisine and pastries. Also, in growing your own food, which I think is very important. For that, I will be forever grateful. They opened their hearts, their home and their restaurant to me. They will be forever in mine :-). Odette and Fernand, I will always love you both :-).
