Especially mad-eyed, scrappily visualised artistic ones (the March Hare I spotted in this post currently hangs on my bedroom wall, making me smile every day). So letting out a little “Oooh!” at this hare mug when I saw it on Etsy wasn’t terribly surprising.
Isn’t it a beauty?
I love the bright, clear expression. I love the way the ears are painted around and inside the rim of the mug. And I love that it’s handpainted so each one is unique, an individual work of art.
But despite it’s beauty, it’s a practical mug – big enough for a decent-sized mug of tea, and it’ll happily go through the dishwasher.
Spotted in Off To The Studio’s Etsy shop (there are jugs in the range, too), the Hares & Graces mug is a smidge under £20. Really not a bad price for a unique handmade item which will bright morning after morning with its cheery hint of a grin.
