I happened upon these small stemless wineglasses at Target. Fifty-some odd cents! And I had a project in mind that, for once, did not involve drinking more wine.
I use pencils all the time. I'm very old school when it comes to making out lists and writing in my planner. And to have a pretty pencil cup on my desk is something I've been needing for awhile. I bought a gold paint pen and got to work.
I can't make perfect circles, but as it turns out, I like the free form swirly circles in a wave pattern even more!
Random pattern, some solid spots, different sizes, some unwinding...
One of these days I will also paint my desk. It's showing it's age. I was thinking of painting the top in ORB and just leaving the rest of it dark brown wood. I haven't decided on that yet. But I do love having my pencils and pens in a pretty cup right where I need them.
