Create a Connection: Mug Swap

Today as I was coming home, I knew, just knew, that my mug would be waiting for me at the door; and it was! Here is the bee-ahhh-uuu-tiful handmade mug that Deb sent me for this month's Create a Connection mug swap hosted by Jessie. Isn't it just delicious? And how perfect could the colour be? My beautiful Sagittarian fairy (thanks, Suzie) seems to feel it's been designed specifically to go with her gown. It's certainly just right for being on my desk!

I love that Deb sent along with it some information about where the mug was actually made, Bybee Pottery in Kentucky, and that it's the same kind as her personal favourite. What a truly special treat! Deb and I were saying we were both surprised at how long it took to get here. Perhaps that's because it now needed a passport to cross the Canadian-American border ;)

That's unbelievable how well the mug matches your fairy Jamie! How cool and serendipitous is that? It's perfect for you Jamie! I'm so glad your mug turned up. Yes, there is definite longer and more involved to send to the U.S. from Canada and vice versa. I didn't realize mugs needed a passport "mug" shot to get over the border, LOL.

A passport! I knew I'd forgotten something! :-)

That's amazing how well the mug and your fairy match each other. I'm so glad you like it! :::beam:::
