Yup, I am going to say it... I am a tea totaler. I don't drink coffee, even though most people in the US are avid coffee drinkers. I thank my older sisters for bring me up to be a tea drinker.
As it happens, the week of a very big show (big and new to me show) I broke my favorite tea mug. I have my morning ritual and that includes sitting down with a warm cup of tea in my favorite mug while I morph into a state of consciousness. I don't know about you but I like to have my tea in that special mug every morning. On this fateful morning I managed to drop my mug on the hardwood floor and surprisingly it smashed into a million pieces. Thankfully it was empty at the time.
A few days later I was participating in an art show along with my friend and fellow Dunstable Artisan, Paula of Wallace Hill Pottery. I fell in love with her handcrafted mugs. The colors, the shape, the size, the feel of the mug in my hand were all just perfect. Naturally I felt I deserved to purchase a new morning ritual mug.
I do so look forward to my morning cup of tea. Isn't this piece just beautiful?
