cold wind, hot mug

Wow, all of the sudden it's fall/winter here in Charlotte!  I'm not quite ready for such brisk weather but it does bring out the hot chocolate, scarves and back yard fire pits- which are all things that make me so happy.:)

I've been avoiding mass consumption of caffeine lately- which means I haven't been brewing up my morning cinnamon hazelnut coffee, but I still want something warm first thing.  Of course it's all so much more fun if you have a good mug.  I found this little one in the back of my cabinet when I was packing up the kitchen for the renovation.


and look inside

How darn cute is that? (ok, I admit this is not my actual mug- mine is packed up in a stack of boxes- I'm hoping not in the one I just found labled fragile that was on top of a stack of boxes and is now laying on it's smooshed side on the floor- awesome)

And then this morning I found these fun mugs by Yumi Yumi on Colossal.





What a fun little gift for a friend or stocking stuffer for those who have everything.  These mugs are only $19.99 or you can get a set of 4 for $69.99, find them on Yumi Yumi's Etsy site, Creature Cups!

Happy Tuesday!

Stay warm out there!
