A Good Mug

In our house, we love a good cup of tea.
(Yorkshire of course.)
I think most people who love a good cuppa will agree there's more to it than meets the eye.
Tea is usually associated with home comforts; a welcome hug for the weary after a hard day, or night; a warm reminder of home.
I love the whole ceremony of making a proper cup of tea and sharing it;
whether its in the morning having a cup with Joe before he heads off to work or with my mum while we put the world to rights!
One thing I have discovered is that although tea in itself is wonderful it can be greatly enhanced by a good slice of homemade cake, and in my humble opinion a suitably wonderful carrier.
Yes, I do love a nice cup.
I love finding lovely cups and mugs, to me it makes a good cup of tea even better.I recently found Doris & co. an English company which makes a beautiful range of pottery and home wares using traditional methods;
Anyone who knows me (or reads this blog, Hello!) will know that I love anything that is made using old fashioned skills or crafted by hand and that will last for years to come.
Not only do Doris & co create products that have that traditional feel but their range is made with such care and attention, it's hard not to fall in love with it.
I really do love a good mug.
And thankfully so do Doris & co, who have solid ideas about the "perfect mug"!
Doris mugs are made from a gorgeous cream earthenware and each one is made by hand;
Their traditional designs reflect the love that goes into each of their mugs, each one carefully decorated with sayings from by-gone days or words of hope, encouragement and endearment that just warm your heart!
Doris kindly sent me this beautiful acorn mug before I had little E which they chose for me in mind of our impending new arrival;
I love that it now reminds me of that time in my life and how our little "acorns" are growing so fast!
Doris' heartfelt designs can be found across the rest of their gorgeous range, like these lovely cotton tea towels as well as their teapots, jugs, vases and other beautiful home wares.
One of my favourite are these little mugs, which I think would make perfect gifts for children as keepsakes.
(Maybe a "Little Lovely" design next Doris & co?!?)
Although my heart will always be in a strong cup of tea, as a mum I also am heavily fuelled by a good cup of coffee most mornings, and Doris have a simply perfect range of espresso mugs, with thoughtful quotes from the likes of T.S Elliot and William Blake for those quite moments of deep thought on a morning-
if you get some peace that is!
I'm so glad to have come across Doris & co and am looking forward to seeing more from this perfectly lovely company!

N.B Dori& co were kind enough to send me some of their range to try however all opinions are entirely my own
