Black And White Damask Bug

I ran into Goodwill yesterday and this is what I saw,



It was only $1.99, and so I thought, why not. I'll figure out something to do with it. I've always had a thing for trays. They catch my eye at stores, lawn sales, etc...
I think it's because you can put things on them and bring order, and give something a place to be. Well, I put it here when I got home, (yes I cleaned it with rubbing alcohol)



And then this morning, I remembered I had these in the top cupboard,



They were on clearance at T.J.'s last fall, and the spoke to me. I think they said, Lisa, bring us home... Yeah that's it.

So as I was pouring my hot delious coffee, I came up with this,



See the Goodwill tray underneath! Works right?! Well, I might paint it at some point. Who knows. But for now, that was the best $1.99 I've spent all week.

Hey, I'm just remembering this,



and this, which sits right next to me on the computer desk.



Hummm.... I think I caught the Black & White Damask Bug.
