August Break 5: Heart Shape, Heart Shape, Heart Shape

I know you see it.

That black upside down heart.
And the rightside up ones behind it.
Three or four of them.

They're in the hall here at work.
They should be in a room,
but they're not.
It's crowded in there,
and though I usually complain about that,
about clutter in the hall,
and usually end up dragging boxes
off to where they belong,
I've let these stay because they're white.
And I like them.

Can you guess what they are?
So easy.
I know you know.


  1. I know! I know! But I won't tell because it was too easy for me. :)

  2. easy to see the hearts, yes.

    but, but..i don't know what they're for!

    waiting for the aha(!) moment.


  3. Are they cozies? Though I don't know why you would have so many. And why they are cardboard.

  4. :D Yes, yes!! Puna, we call them coozies (or cool cups) and we print on them. For parties, weddings (seriously!), you name it. You would be amazed at the things people say right out loud on these things. We also print photos on them if wanted. We have them in all colors and you're right, they look like cardboard (especially in this image), but they're foam rubber - these are about 3/16", and are the less expensive ones. We also have the more expensive ones that are not folded flat but they don't make heart shapes. :)

  5. the hearts leapt out at me, especially the upside down one. =)

  6. well, those were supposed to be hearts...you know what I meant!

  7. I love the hearts!
    Here's all the years at Renaissance Faire showing on me: all I could think was "Really? A cardboard flask?!"

  8. I have discovered your wonderful blog at last :) This shot is fab, I love the crispness and the way you change the perspective from something quite blank to something so simply beautiful xxx Milena

  9. hmm, packing for framed prints I'm guessing. Love that you see the beauty in what most would simply pass by unoticed.

  10. I'm a sucker for heart images. Very cool (and I would have never guessed what they were in a bazillion years!).

  11. i totally guessed cozies....
    but dang, i wasn't the first one to get here with my guess....

    and maybe something's in the air....i posted today about hearts, too.....

  12. i was guessing cozies too. love that you saw the hearts there.

  13. Koozies are a requirement in Texas

  14. I would have guessed flattened light bulb boxes.
    And I would have been wrong!


come. sit under the emma tree & let's talk. i have cookies . . .
