"Care For A Cuppa...?"

This is my "Me Time" mug.
I use it when I am feeling in a really
100% "zen-good" mood.
It was made in an artists' co-op in Nepal...
and
I found it at the Ten Thousand Villages boutique
not far from where I live.
Artisans whose merchandise is sold in this store
are paid fair trade wages.
I think that is so cool.
Hence, this mug has super great karma.
I love the feel and heft of it.
In reality it is actually more pale, pale stone gray in color...
but somehow when I painted her
my silver blue Daniel Smith iridescent paint
kept jumping on my brush.
Go figure! :)

What a gorgeous mug and very well rendered too, Margaret! I'm fully supportive of the Fair Trade aspect too.

How nice to have a cup that feels as good as it looks.

Nice Margaret, nothing better than a favorite mug. I like the added lines and words in the background of your piece.

What a beauty! I would probably have chosen the same mug ;)

Each morning I choose a mug to fit my mood or to life my spirits. It's such fun!
