|Fairytale mug by Julie Dodsworth|
I'm always delighted when I find some little item which I know will bring a bit of magic and enchantment into my every day life. We cannot all live in a castle or storybook cottage but it is possible to find small inexpensive items which give great joy when we see them and use them in real life.
I loved this mug when first I found it and could not resist. The floral design with it's fine tendrils captured my interest straight away .... and then I read what it says inside the rim.
This is a wondrous design by talented Yorkshire artist Julie Dodsworth. This is what she says about this mug:
"Fairytale - Another one of our favourite haunts are the woods at Bolton Abbey. Come late spring, the bluebells form the most incredible blue haze, the walk is intoxicating. As a child I thought the tiny blue bell flowers were fairy bonnets! Fairytale is my tribute."
Drinking my morning tea from it makes me cheerful all day and when the day has worn on and I am flagging a lovely cup of Earl Grey with lemon refreshes me for the evening.
You can get it from Julie's own website, or if you have a Waitrose local to you they are stocking them too!
You can add your own old chair with comfy cushions and fairytale Bunny or Fox!
Have a good look around her new website, she is offering a lot of wonderful items.
