Ceramic Sunday, strainer.
Yesterday I was given the present of this lovely little strainer. It came from friends who are clearing the house of a distant, newly deceased relative. What a business it is turning out to be! The house is cram-jammed with the strange assortment of objects that a long life collects. They felt quite overwhelmed by the task at first, but slowly, after weekends spent carefully sorting, some sort of order has been achieved. Nothing, say my friends, is quite complete, so the strainer, minus its cup, sits now on my kitchen windowsill in company with other blue and white pieces that came from my parents' and grandparents' homes.
