We wish we had room to display each bird separately
to really show off their tails, but…
Nesting Measuring Cups
this is the safest spot to display
(considering the presence of the resident furry black fiend…)

    Are they an heirloom? They’re beautiful!

    Don’t they look sort of like bird heads? I would want to keep them upside-down. Although that might attract Mr Furry Black.

    edit: They do look like heirlooms, don’t they? I’ll have to ask our friends where they found them. And I hadn’t even thought of storing them upside down! That would make their wings upside down – but it would also attract less dust. (How very formal to call the black fiend “Mr.”….) – Elizabeth

      I didn’t “see” the picture of the bird correctly. I don’t think I even realized it was a bird. I was only looking at the cup as a whole. Actually, I still don’t really see the “birdness” of the picture. Is the pointy part the beak or the wing or the tail?

      edit: There are four birds. The pointy orange spout parts are beaks and the handles are tails. The wings are painted on. If you look at the photo of the measuring cups in the box, you should be able to get a sense of the birdness from the full cup measure. (It might help to ignore the fact that they are like bowls and imagine them brimming with flour or sugar so their backs are filled in.) – Elizabeth
       
      I added a closer view of the 1 cup measure. Maybe that will help clear up the confusion.
