Knittea: DIY Mug

Last Saturday I was idly browsing my Instagram feed and I came upon a friend’s photo of a DIY mug that she had added knitting to:

She noted she had gotten the idea from a friend, so I went and checked out her friend’s feed and sure enough, it was a great idea!

The only problem I see is that I didn't make this sooner. Genius! #spunrightround #starbuckstumbler

I immediately Googled that and found the Starbucks Stainless Steel Create Your Own Tumbler for $18.99 here.

The holidays are upon us and you could make one for yourself or for a loved one. I’ve got one winging its way to me now!

Will you be my Valentine?

If you’re still looking for a gift for your Valentine, might I suggest a mug and some tea?

I was in Barnes & Noble last week and I saw these delightful mugs that would be perfect for you and your love:

Barnes & Noble, Be Mine Mug, $7.95

Barnes & Noble, I’m Yours Mug, $7.95

As for tea, I can heartily suggest David’s Tea Love Tea #7 (review here):

Two weeks ago on the podcast I got to try a sample of The Republic of Tea Downton Abbey Crawley Sisters Tea which tastes of chocolate and strawberries and was delicious.

Finally, I haven’t tried it yet, but I see that Harney & Sons has a Valentine’s Blend that includes chocolate tea and rosebuds.
