Crafted by Chicago artist Ted Harris, these beverage beauties were on display at the amazing urban antiques shop, Scout. Harris is known for taking other people's cast offs, such as old globes and masses of discarded light bulbs, and turning them into fabulous lighting structures. read about him in the New York Times here.
I can just imagine what Harris might be able to do with all these assorted vessels nestled atop my kitchen cabinets. There's my childhood cookie jar -- the one that my mom put in a box and mailed to my door in New York a few years ago; a metal Calvin Klein pitcher from my fashion days; and a Japanese looking vase that a friend once offered flowers in. And there's my thermos! It once belonged to a neighbor's husband who carried it to work every day. It's too tall for the space between the cabinets and the ceiling, so I set the cup on the cookie jar next to it. My parents bought the beverage carrie at her garage sale because it seemed to be labeled just for me.
Always Frugal, Always Fabulous!
