I have decided to show you some stuff around the house. I don't know if I will keep this on a Tuesday or not. I wish I could be as predictable as our other blogging buddies, but I don't know if my memory can be relied on to that extent. I guess it all depends on whether yall like the idea.
Here is a pic of the coffee cups I have sitting on my kitchen window sill...
Now that I look at the pic myself, I notice I really need to wash the window inside and out. What is that large drop on the outside? Paint!
Those coffee cups, I picked up in a flea market in Shreveport, Louisiana. They intrigued me from the first look. They are handmade, they are all different in sizes, shape, handles and color but they are all made by the same person. Someone with the initials WS or SW. Hard to say which was carved first..
Don't know whats up with that 2!
I like the earthiness of them. I also like the fact that someone went through the loving effort to make them. Sometimes I wonder..Was it a class project or someones hobby? Was they done on purpose to be different or was each one done separately as someone fine tuned their craft? Those cups have a story, I just haven't figured it out yet and probably never will.
The other object in that first pic, is a bottle that my brother did for me. He did that about 13 years ago when he was about 15. I'm racking my brain for those numbers, just so you know they might be off a little.
It is masking tape made to look old and glue brushed on with a cute pic of an Elephant playing in a tub. I was really into Elephants for a very long time and so that was very thoughtful and crafty of him. I love that piece so much it has been on display ever since I got it and even had to have him repair it last year.
So there you have it, a peek at my window display. Those coffee cups are usually spread out along the sill, but I scrunched them up yesterday for fear Whiskers the cat would knock one down. He kept jumping up on the sill to look out at the birds, made me real nervous!
