Good morning everyone! I hope that you have had a good start to your week this week! Before I get too deep into this post, I want to say a little something first…Thank you. Thank you for sticking around and bearing with me as I navigate the new joys and challenges as a family of four. It’s been easier than I thought in some ways and has posed some challenges-especially this past week as I’ve started getting back into working and routines. Overall though, everything is going really well and I now have time carved out in my everyday again specifically for The Cosy Book Shoppe and for blog posts.
Yesterday was a big day in the shoppe as we launched 3 new mugs! Shortly after the shoppe opened a year ago I started selling some custom made mugs with three phrases, one being “The Cosy Book Shoppe” and two other’s saying “Books and Tea” and “Curl Up”. My plan was to eventually bring in more mugs with different sayings and colors. This past summer I worked with the woman who makes the mugs and now have 3 more mugs to include in the shoppe!
The original 3 mugs are still available in the shoppe, but you are now also able to purchase the “Happy Place”, “Cosy Cuppa”, and “Sip Read Repeat”! These are some of my favorite sayings and mugs that I have in my own home (and I collect mugs, so I have a lot) and as mugs these are the ones I reach for the most. They sit so comfortably in your hand and are very nicely hand crafted.
Each mug was hand made out of clay, so there are variations in each mug. This allows for a unique and beautiful mug to use. The mugs hold approximately 16 oz of liquid and are both microwave and top rack dishwasher safe (although you may want to be careful of your water temperature).
All 6 mugs are unique and will make a great gift either for yourself or for friends and family! There is one more mug coming at a later date that I am very excited about as well!
