The current fun project on my table is creating mosaic tip cups for the (soon-to-be) three eateries at Cashiers Village. The owners of Tommy's Coffee Shop and Zeke & Earl's match every tip that the employees receive and donate the money on a quarterly basis to the Cashiers-Highlands Humane Society.
I found three huge coffee mugs at Michael's and bought a bunch of great dog and cat figurines on etsy and eBay. The most time consuming part has been gluing them all on since the cup has to lie flat for at least 24 hours so the mastic can really set up.
(Disclaimer: those two black and white cats you see on the mug lips were not secure enough. After one popped off when I bumped it, I ripped the other one off too. Will have to rethink my choice of glue and how to stabilize them up there, clearly.)
I just love this white cat sticking out but I know it's only a matter of time before it gets whacked off, too. Hopefully after the grout has dried it won't be so precarious.
See what happens when you don't spay and neuter!
