Teapots Collection

Ema loves to sing this nursery rhymes :

I am a little Teapot
 Short and Stout
Here is my Handle
 Here is my Spout
When I get all Steamed up
Hear me shout
Tip me Over and
Pour me Out

My young grand daughter , Ema, loves to see the set of crockery collection and it seemed she is the only one among the females in my family who appreciates ....' santik nyerr..pingtan tantung' : her usual chants.
