We here at colour it green towers do love our coffee, and part of the ritual of coffee making for us, amongst the grinding and cafetiere moments, is having the right cups. Well we found them and bought two lovely cappuccino cups from Victoria at Little Wren Pottery – and more recently commissioned another couple to match and some smaller cups and saucers along the same lines.
I had said they were not a present and we were not in a huge rush, so didn’t expect them this side of thingymas, but to my joy they came today. Actually I felt a little guilty about that as the postie said that he had loads of parcels in his van today that he had been unable to deliver as the rising floodwaters had meant being unable to reach some houses. Those last minute shoppers are going to miss out.. whilst our parcel got through. The guilt passed pretty fast once we had unpacked the cups.
They are lovely. Hand made, each is unique and yet part of a set. Made in Britain and using Devonshire stoneware. They fit the hand comfortingly and are solid and delightful And green. The best colour.
Time for coffee I think.
