Everyday Matters 283 - Draw something shiny.
I had a bit of trouble finding something shiny to draw, I just don't go for shiny new things (although I wouldn't say no to a shiny sports car!). Due to my love of old or vintage objects I seem to have been nominated the family keeper of heirlooms and so on.
This is an old silver plated teapot that belonged to my grandma and it actually wasn't very shiny until I cleaned it!
Nobody is really sure where the teapot came from (there is also a matching sugar bowl), although we know that Grandma bought it back from France after her holidays. We always presumed she picked it up in an antique shop. A few years ago I traced back all our family ancestors and found out that one branch of the family went to live in France at the beginning of the century, so perhaps Grandma was in touch with the French relations? The teapot could be from the French part of the family, but then again it might not be...it's still a nice story.
