My friend Pat gave me this little
whimsical figurine when I opened
my business.  When I wanted to
add a water feature to the garden of
the tearoom it seemed natural to
add a little whimsy to the outside
too.  I commissioned
Jess Star, an amazing artist who
was working as an intern with the
Six Mile Sculpture Works, a
program with Alfresco Productions,
to use this piece as inspiration.  

She did an amazing job creating
this one of a kind work of art that is
a favorite photo op for my
The teacup that the water trickles into was
my grandmothers’.  Both Pat and my
Grandma are no longer with me, but every
time I’m in the garden and hear the soft
sounds of the water being poured from the
pot to the cup, I think of them.
