i love this mug!

If you’re looking for a special gift for a writer friend or bookworm, grab hold of this mug! (Or maybe you’d like to treat yourself for all your hard work this year.)

Not your ordinary, everyday Hallmark gift shop kind of mug, this Bridgewater Pottery 8 oz. beauty is hand painted and hand decorated in Stoke-on-Trent, England. Each one is unique, and part of a limited edition.

I can attest to the high quality of all Bridgewater products; I’ve been an avid collector of their pieces for years. They are durable, dishwasher and oven safe, and don’t chip easily.

Look what it says on the back:

Along the inside edge, it reads: "Happiness comes in a mug."

"Happiness" is also spelled out along the handle.

The full range of Bridgewater pottery can be found at their website, but for ordering in the U.S., try Joanne Hudson. They ship lickety split fast; I received this mug in less than 24 hours.

Happy Holidays and Happy Shopping!
