Strange how a cup of tea can represent at the same time, the comforts of solitude, and the pleasures of company.
This is my daily tea mug. Yes, I know, tea is meant to be drunk out of fine China, but as I sit at my easel or in front of my MAC, it’s far easier toe stretch out and find your tea, with your eyes glued to the screen or your painting, when it’s a mug with a nice grip. Imagine sweeping your hand from side to side, trying to find your tea, and sending one of your best china cups crashing to the floor…? And it serves double duty, offering a lovely cup of coffee when the occasion arises.
Now I KNOW everybody thinks I’m this BIG coffee drinker, but truth be told, I drink far more tea than coffee. If I had to drink the same amount of coffee as I spend drinking tea, I’ll have one of those punk hairstyles and be very bright-eyed and bushy-tailed all day long! My coffees and Latté’s are really reserved for special occasions.
