Woah--I'm way behind!!!! Here's Day 9!
This ceramic tea cup was made by my Aunt Shirle, who died of cancer about a year ago. Shirle had a ceramics shop for many years, which as a kid, I thought was one of the coolest things ever. When we visited her house when I was young, she and her husband Bob, who just passed away a month ago, would give me various scrap pieces to paint in their basement ceramics studio. The entire family has had many lovely pieces over the years--either painted by Shirle or by themselves--though oddly, I think this is the only ornament I have. It's a nice reminder of my aunt, as well as a cute ornament!
