Cup of Kindness

This still-life reminds me of folks I hold dear, my Mom, my friends and family back in Alabama and Mississippi and of a slower time in the past. A time when folks sat on the porch sipping tea and telling lies. My Mom always set a nice table on Sundays with linen napkins and tablecloths. I have been collecting Mississippi pottery for over 25 years. There is something about the mud in makes the best pottery. This is Keith Stewart and McCarty pottery. And the quote on the teabag is from a recent novel, "The Help". Of course, no southern table is complete without flowers or greenery...These are just a few of my favorite things. Let me paint a still life of your favorite things, just take a picture and email me.
