I'm a Winner

A few weeks ago I lamented the loss of my Chinatown teapot. I had no idea why it made me so sad that the fairly unremarkable pot had broken, but it did. A few days later Russelle let me know that I had won her Summer Mug Giveaway. While it's not a full replacement for a teapot, I am currently loving having a very generous portion of green tea in the afternoon.

The intricately designed mug has a Portland city scene and is glazed in a subtle and beautiful shade with purple undertones. There are buildings, trees a waterfront pathway illustrated as well as people jogging, playing and riding bikes. There's also a sneaky space ship thrown in for good measure.

A mug and delicious green tea.
Besides being able to fill my system with antioxidants from copious amounts of yummy green tea, I love that there are little hidden details like the building impressions behind the handle.


Thanks again!!
