Artsy Friday - Skylines

I got this mug at the Veteran's Thrift Store in Glendale today:

79 cents. I couldn't resist. The minute I picked it up I had flashbacks to Savannah and Charleston (South Carolina) and New Orleans and San Francisco. When I showed it to Erik he said it looked like Shepherdstown. It's all of those places rolled into one lovely mug.

What does it remind you of?

Speaking of skylines, it's Artsy Friday. That mug reminded me of this, that's hanging in our hall:

My friend Fred did it. It's titled "dis be dat for k.b." Fred and I (and Kendra and Eric [but not my Erik]) shared a house in Shepherdstown when we were in college. A few years later I was in Savannah and Fred lived 4 doors down. He made me this drawing of the Savannah skyline as a going away present. That bridge was amazing. He said it was a map/maze of my life beyond Savannah. So far it's been pretty accurate.

Pictures of coffee mugs and grocery takes are okay, but I would rather see pictures of darling children!
