Coffee Relics

I found this ceramic drip coffee cone on top of the microwave at my house. It was being used to hold a paper clip, a small ceramic blue bird, a rubber band, a dead battery and a whole load of dust. The cone probably belong(ed) to my step-mother. I relic of a past relative or perhaps just a thrift store find. But whoever it belonged to it was clearly not being used for the purpose in which it was conceived. So, I took the (presumably) forgotten drip coffee cone, cleaned it out and restored it to its proper place in the material world. I used it today for my morning coffee, and it did a stellar job. It will now make a fine addition to my growing collection of coffee making artifacts.
