Seven months ago we moved into the house we currently live in. It had been two and a half years since we’d been in our own place and we were excited thinking about what we could do and how we could make it our own.
One idea my husband had wasn’t particularly large scale but related to an important cupboard in the kitchen above the kettle. The mug cupboard. Everyone loves mugs, right? Or actually, one or two in particular usually.
This is my current fave.
Just been sipping my camomile tea from this beaut. Why do I love it? Well, it’s not just because I painted it and am
super proud of it (my tracing skills are awesome). I like the shape of it too and it reminds me of a fun time at my sister-in-law’s hen do.
Yesterday, I noticed it had acquired a massive chip!! DEVASTATED. You can see it in the photo. *Weeps again* Am conducting a CSI investigation. Dusting for finger prints, taking swabs – the whole works. I’ve interviewed suspect no. 1 who denied any knowledge of said crime. So current prime suspect is, the dishwasher. It’s not confessing easily so going to have to go all ‘bad cop’ on it’s ass.
You can tell it’s after 10pm.
Anyway, my husband’s idea was for us to create our own little set of mugs, each having a quote that we selected from a favourite book printed on the side. I sent him some ideas months and months ago via text and we are struggling to locate them again. I looked at my ‘Quotes’ board in Pinterest and found a few options…
I’m not sure that’s the Jane Austen quote I’d rather go for… probably something from Persuasion – my fave.
Any suggestions? Favourite all-time quote?
It’s harder than it seems…
