Lots of ideas for the D-day, but didn’t get the artistic urge until I remembered I had a few Demitasse cups from my espresso era (late 80's) – still love a cup from time to time! A demitasse is from a French word meaning "half cup." This darling is from our honeymoon. It features the Greenbrier Resort signature rhododendron. Last time I was there flowers everywhere – lobby, hallways, rooms, steps going in/out, you name it. A gorgeous place known for having hosted distinguished guests (and us nearby locals) since 1778. During the Cold War is was used as a secret safe-haven for American presidents and government officials – it was declassified around 1992 and now you can take a tour of The Bunker.
Enough history! Life is about making memories and this is one of them. I try to purchase something small and useful during notable events to keep reminding me of great times past and to always look forward to new adventures.
I’ve painted a few cups before, but this is a first trying to paint a pattern on it. If that wasn't enough, decided to paint one of their beautiful gold spoons. I doubt the Greenbrier still uses them, so now a priceless memory.
