Just Mare on Etsy
For some reason the mug reminds me of the mug I stole from my father's apartment after he died. I appreciate the handcrafted nature of this one as much as he did the handcrafted nature of his own he used every morning.
I would really very much so like to have a mug of my own. How great would it be to have a mug that is so beautiful and so... sooo... sooooo *sigh*. I am a little more comfortable than I was a moment ago. You know the feeling of sitting with a nice hot cup of coffee in front of a big window watching the Earth wake up? Comfortable like that.
Etsy is doing a story right now that you can read here. I really like Mary already. Her quoted quote is one of my new favorites. It's spoken so much more eliquently than the rambling explanation of why I want Aiden's art to be nurtured from home via homeschool instead of stripped away by public school forced conformity.
