A vintage tea(spoon) glass
If you'll permit me one more "glass" post, I'll get off the topic of tea glasses, I promise! (For a while, I mean. Surely there will be a new tea glass in the next year or two I'll want to write about!) This one was a $1 find at an antique mall in Rome, and I just love the graphics on this glass!
The teaspoon graphic reminds me very much of a rubber stamp design I've seen, and I'm going to save the image in my computer files in case I need a design of a vintage teaspoon one day. Invitations -- thank-you notes -- decoupage crafts. I can think of lots of uses for this design. I was drawn to it because I thought it was from an old newspaper (and I'm definitely an old newspaper girl!), but upon inspection I saw it was a reprint from a vintage Sears catalog. (And wouldn't you love to get six solid silver teaspoons for $3.66?)
I also like this design of a woman's boot, and it could have similar uses as the teaspoon graphic. I'll bet you've got some tea-themed goodies at your house as well that are just as suitable to be turned into "graphic images" for crafts!
