They were unmarked. I don't really know what they are made of, maybe some sort of soap stone. I think they are incense burners. I don't think ashtrays, but something has been burned inside.
I took this little runner that I already had with tea staining and a little embroidery...
I ironed some fabric to heat and bond and cut out a little fabric owl to decorate the other side of the runner. He has felt under black button eyes.
I put a little rustic bench on one corner of my kitchen counter top, and put the runner over the bench. This little Carlton teapot is a new find too. I glued some googly eyes on a mini pumpkins and placed it on the teapot.
I added another teapot and pumpkin with googly eyes.
My Northern Pottery white owl and one of the new black ones...
And the other black owl, and a couple more googly eyed mini pumpkins. It's kind of hard to tell, but I put a flame-less tea light in the owls. I think it will show up better at night.
This is how it all came together.
With the two new black owls, I now have nine owls! This is my most unexpected collection.
