KEEP CALM AND HAVE A CUPPA...


I saw this gorgeous cup "with a wink and a smile" at Deanna's blog and a few months 
later the Postman delivered this cutie. My husband had made a bid on Ebay...
don't you love men who can surprise their wifes from time to time?

In times when I doubt myself  I always use this mug for my morning coffee.

Nice mugs. :)

Both photos are gorgeous! I love the subtle touches - the hint of the clock or timer in the background the lovely red flower (is that a calla lily?). I like to change the mug I drink from depending upon my mood - perhaps you do the same? We all need that mug that says we are amazing!

Wat een leuke verrassing van je man, ik vind beide bekers mooi, maar vooral de eerste. En ja, het lijkt me heerlijk om eens een dag te hebben waar het alleen maar om koffie of thee draait.
Groetjes,

Ze zijn beiden leuk. Ik heb een zwak voor mokken, bij de kringloop moet ik mij altijd inhouden.

Lieve groet, Ingrid

Oh that is so sweet that your hubby surprised you with that - and I do love the second one, great way to start your day with a reminder like that!

Was het maar waar dat we ons alleen zorgen hoefde te maken om de koffie of thee Barbara. Maar jij hebt er in ieder geval prachtige opnames van gemaakt.
Fijne avond gewenst.

Oh my gosh, Barbara, I LOVE IT! I would love to get my hands on one of these cups, it's adorable!

I think I've seen the Amazing Woman cup before at a Christian store nearby that I go to sometimes.

Happy Mother's Day, Barbara.
Have a relaxing day doing all the things you love.

Love your surprise cup. And, you must be an amazing woman since your husband still likes to surprise you. The red flower and the green cup are wonderful.
