It’s been such a long time since I’ve had a ‘normal’ blog post and I’ve been wanting to formally introduce some new items into the shop. There’s something very comforting about a good mug, as you cup it in your hands it warms your fingers and while very sturdy they sometimes lack a little sophistication.
I’ve wanted to add something just a little chic to the shop for a while now. Something for those days when unexpected guests arrive for coffee, cake and gossip. The cafe collection has more formal feel than anything I’ve created before with it’s short round cappuccino cups, espresso cups and tall latte mugs.
I visit a lot of coffee shops and probably my favourite is Cafe Du Vie in Newcastle. Hidden away from the high street it’s low continental style tables have a cozy parisian flair and I wanted to create something that wouldn’t look out of place gracing it’s polished brassy tables. If you’re ever in Newcastle drop by for a hot chocolate and maybe while away an hour or two with a game of backgammon.
Sadly custom orders for Christmas are now closed but I’ll still be listing new items over in my Etsy and Folksy shop. If your just wanting a little gift for yourself I’m also still taking orders for the new year.
