(Pattern: Stangl Country Garden)
I have collected and gathered so many patterns of dishes over the years,
At the flea market last fall,
these were in a box under a table.
None of my finds are ever eye level.
The colors- especially the turquoise-
the hand painting,
the price ($25),
the quantity of pieces,
Drinking coffee out of this mug is one of life’s great pleasures.
In fact, that’s it folks.
That is my ongoing ‘main idea’; that is my message
each time I write a post.
I may wrap it all up in my own quirky view of things,
or the humor I see in just about everything,
as in my Faux Twitter posts or my Anti-tutorials,
but the message is always the same.
Delight in Simple Things.
And yes, in my world,
it makes perfect sense for a vintage coffee mug to say that.
