I found these old army cups in metal the other day and fell in love.

I found these old army cups in metal the other day and fell in love. The two that were a bit too rusty to drink out of are now serving as flower pots. The others are hanging on the kitchen wall waiting for a picnic in the park or a coffee on the balcony.


Elin: Thank you, that's so sweet of you!
