This Giveaway is Closed – Thank You!
Whether you’re a book lover, a music lover, or both, chances are you like to indulge in your appreciation of either with a hot cup of your favorite coffee or tea by your side. I prefer having a favorite mug to fill; something that’s mine and mine alone. For years now I’ve used the same old tired yellow mug that sports a faded cartoon of the Chicago skyline. I overpaid for it in the Hancock Tower gift shop, and although it represents a very pleasant day, it was time to replace it with something not so worn. Mug Heaven has such a large selection of handmade ceramic mugs that choosing one to replace my old standby was an enjoyably difficult task. Animal mugs, personalized mugs, beautifully glazed pottery pieces that looked more like art – and that’s where I stopped.
See the photo above? It’s the mug I chose, my new sidekick while I blog, read, listen to music. It’s sitting next to me right now, filled with my favorite cappuccino. A beautiful piece which came wrapped with extreme care, so it looked simply brilliant when I received it. There’s something about a good mug that makes drinking coffee and tea seem more satisfying, like a little indulgence in the midst of my usually busy day. If you’ve ever used a good pottery mug, you probably noticed its tendency to hold onto the heat a little more than the average mass-produced, thin walled piece. That and, darn, cappuccino just looks better surrounded by a mug called “Golden Toffee and Raspberry“.
This is where it gets fun: Mug Heaven is giving away a mug to one carp(e) libris reviews reader. The winner gets to select the perfect mug to fit their personality; up to a $20 selection!
