I have posted about the wonderful Jennie the Potter and her fabulous handmade mugs before. I have a small collection, which is quite impressive given how coveted they are. Jennie vends at all sorts of knitting festivals and the lines for her wares often begin the moment the event opens. I managed to purchase one for myself once, a few years ago, when I visited Maryland Sheep and Wool. The others I have acquired have been gifts or the once in a blue moon shop update.
Well it must have been a blue moon this week, because this beauty came to live with me today.
Earlier this week a friend posted some delightful looking mugs from Stuff You Love. I had to go check it out for myself. These are my favorites!
I love woodland creatures, but I really love the recent fascination with foxes. I love the puns even more. Here are a few items that would make your collection foxy:
Last week for knit night we went to Barnes & Noble and I was pleased to see gifts for knitters and tea lovers.
When I first walked in past a display of holiday fair isle tote bags. You have your choice of a red reindeer, white with gold bow, blue snowflake or green tree. I found them on the Barnes & Noble site for $24.95, but the tags in store said $12.99 so head to your local brick and mortar store and save yourself some Christmas pennies.
Then I went upstairs to the cafe (where we meet to knit) and saw a delightful collection of holiday mugs. I particularly liked these inspired by The Grinch Who Stole Christmas (available for $12.95 a piece).
Halloween is fast approaching and I am enchanted by Gary Jackson’s Ghoul Collection. I believe they are only available at his shows, but what fun!
You know I love a good comfy shirt. Now that it’s fall I’m reaching for my lightweight raglans from Look Human, and I found a new one to add to the collection.
This week there was a supermoon full lunar eclipse, the last of which occurred 33 years ago.
It was fitting then, that I found out about Moon Glass by Tale this week.
These awesome cups let you mimic the phases of the moon with a simple pour.
The last week or so there has been a change in the air. The days are a bit cooler, and the nights even more so, and fall is definitely around the corner. As I contemplate warm beverages to keep my hands toasty, I also think about whipping up a few cup cozies. Perhaps one of these great patterns?
I don’t know what it is about mandalas, but they never fail to catch my eye. Is it that they are geometrically appealing, almost like a kaleidoscope? Or is it the rich colors? Here they can bring peace and beauty to tea time:
