Latest Purchases #104 – Four New Cups

I have to admit that I did think twice about posting this one. To some people, mugs are something you don’t give a second thought to but if you are as much of a tea fiend as I am, then you will fully understand the importance of a good cup!

I choose different mugs depending on the mood I’m in, the drink I’m having from it and the time of day so I thought I would share four new ones that I have been enjoying recently.

The first is a large white mug with an ‘H’ on the front. I love monogrammed items around my house and this mug is a generous size. I picked this up in Boston when I was craving a good cuppa!

I made another Boston purchase in the form of this Harvard mug. We visited here in October and had a great morning there, learning a bit more about the American university culture. I love buying mugs on our travels and remembering little parts of our trip when I use them.

Next, a present from my brother who actually bought me a set of two of these gorgeous ‘tin can’ mugs. They were from a little artisan pottery shop on Walcott Street in Bath and I think they are a really cool original design.

Finally, I bought this ‘tea glass’ from a café called Coffeeshop Company after enjoying afternoon tea in St. Petersburg this summer. I really like the fact that this is a bit different and it is so warm and comforting to wrap both hands around and drink from.

About hannahhotcakes

My name is Hannah. I live near Bath in a lovely village in the Cotswolds with my husband Ian, the love of my life for the past 10 years, in our dream cottage. I have landed my dream job as a primary school teacher and I can’t think of anything else I would rather be doing. I am a self-confessed foodie and I love to cook, bake, and eat out as much as possible. Here are some things I love: My friends and family, travelling, fresh flowers, good books, having breakfast on my balcony, horror films, Christmas, tea, Las Vegas, lie-ins, red wine, Liverpool FC, music, sausage dogs, Spain, rare steak, fashion, cheese, American TV series and camping. And here are my pet hates: People dressed as animals, whistling, being rushed, being made to wait, girls who act stupid to impress a man, spiders, sunburn and rocket (it comes with EVERYTHING!)
