I do love a good cuppa, whether it’s a cup of posh loose leaf tea with cake, a builders brew at work or a big mug of hot chocolate before bed – I’m easy to please! Although one thing that helps the experience is a good mug and I am a hoarder of such…while I can say ‘no’ to most bargains, when it comes to crockery I have amassed a vast selection over the years, the reason being there are several things that entice me.
I had a quick browse and found an example of some of the characteristics that catch my eye (although I had to keep my purse well out of arms length to save my bank balance). I think I need to home my crockery desire before I run out of cupboard space – as you can see there aren’t many mugs which don’t take my fancy! What do you look for in a good mug?…
1. An unusual design;
2. A delicate design;
3. A classic retro design;
4. A massive mug to warm your up from the inside; or
5. A novelty design.
I stumbled across Alma Haser’s Ten Seconds Project on the Ondra Loup photo blog. I think it’s a lovely, fresh, nostalgic idea:
My favourite aspect of the project is the interactivity – a sense of community – due to people engaging and sending in their own take on their project. The rules of the project are on her website, if you fancy getting involved!…
Now all I need to do is keep my eyes peeled for some quirky containers to pot them up in, add a bit of ribbon, write a card and bob’s your uncle!…
I stumbled across this list of 90’s inspired DIY projects and these three really took my eye – doable on the cheap and perfect coming into the summer! I’m inspired…
1. Retro worn dungarees.
2. Braided crop top.
3. Full-length jersey skirt.
6. A great DIY idea, now all I need to do is find a cheap bath tub and somewhere to put one!
