Adventures in Reading


Bookish Ideas

Books and coffee are nearly inseparably concepts for me. As the winter weather begins to suggest itself through early morning frost clinging to my windshield and wispy flakes of snow making ever so brief appearances, I am reminded to visit my local grocery to pick up eggnog and some of the many delightful holiday specific coffee creamers. Yesterday a friend and I went to paint ceramics (my first time), and while I had a splendid time and will soon be the proud owner of an enormous coffee mug/soup bowl (once it has been fired), but my creative juices were stagnant to say the least. Of course the day after a delightful idea strikes me: ceramics with literary quotes or even famous silhouettes (Jane Austen cookie dishes anyone!?). Part of this idea was inspired by my recent perusal of Literary Tattoos, and some of the ingenious ways people have found to love literature outside of the book. I will be sure to update as the ceramic ideas come along, but I am now quite interested in seeing how people use literature in their lives.

Your coffee mug sounds fab! Why not share it with fellow coffee fans who are artists, readers and writers at The Coffee Cup Club
Have a look round!

kevmoore: If my items don’t look too horrid after the fact I will definitely share them.

Never had eggnog creamer before, in fact, I’ve never had eggnog ever…don’t even know what it tastes like. I’ve always been meaning to try it…this year is the year!

I love your author silhouette on ceramics idea! Imagine the possibilities: Shakespeare, Hemingway, T.S. Eliot, etc… all those famous profiles. Maybe you can get them on T-shirts too.

T Y: I have Flannery O’Connor plate pattern brewing that I would love to hang up in my living room. While struggling with ideas on how to reference literature on practical items it struck me how great decorating with ceramics could be.
