Whats in the box?

Oh my goodness did I so fall in love with these mugs today. Even the box they came in is gorgeous and will be on display somewhere. I was browsing around the British Homes Stores...home store at Chichester in Sussex. This is a brilliant store, just everything for the home.....lots of vintage decor too. So I spied these mugs and they said "buy me...buy me"....well whats a girl to do eh! Next thing I was at the till and parting with the money. At present they are still in the box...Monday our new table and chairs come from Ikea, so the new breakfast room will be sorted out.


So chocolate drink anyone...mind you tea and coffee will also go into these. They are a good size, just right to wrap your hands around on these very cold days.



The backs are just as pretty as the front. In the box there was a bit of info about the designer...her name is Rosanna Bowles and she has been recognized as a leader in tabletop design. She was awarded Pretigious Gift of the Year award by the British Giftware association. Her products are designed in Seattle, Washington USA. This is the website if you fancy a looksee http://www.rosannainc.com/
There are lots of beautiful tableware there....there is a distributor for the U.K........so hopefully we could see more of her collections over here. As for me I quite like the teaplates that go with the set and Oh! of course the jug....maybe on my next visit.

So totally lovely ... I can just imagine wrapping my fingers around one off them filled to the brim with hot chocolate topped with whipped cream! I love the way you say 'till' and all the other English phrases and words .....
