Eyespresso

Let me see, where did the inspiration for this design come from . . . maybe it is the espressos, macchiatos, cappuccinos and lattes that appear on my desk while I am working. In my eyes (excuse the pun) - my husband is a barista of note and he really spoils me with his creations. I had so much fun with this Three Muse's challenge - eyes. Cafedomancy is the art of reading the future in coffee grounds, which goes back to the earliest days of coffee drinking.

This is wonderful! I had not heard of cafedomancy before, but I know I have studied those coffee grounds when I look into my cup and find it empty...I must go now and make myself an espresso! Cheers!

Rhonda said...

Not sure if my comment worked, I was so preoccupied with the cup of coffee I am now making that I may not have waited for it to go through! This is a wonderful piece - it speaks to me as you can tell! Cheers!
