And the winner is.... and an Invitation.



Ladies and Gentlemen, we have a winner to my first ever blog giveaway. The first name out of the mug (for want of a hat), selected by my husband is Nettie from a quilt is nice. Congratulations to Nettie and thank you for everyone else for taking part.

And now for the invitation:- After reading about Elizabeth's idea from (About New York) on Weaver of Grass's blog about "Plate Friday" I suggested that perhaps "Mug Monday" might be fun. This idea has rather gathered momentum with lots of eager bloggers keen to show off their special mugs. It seems that many of us get an emotional attachment to a certain mug, the one pictured above is my husband's favourite mug which I bought for him at The Museum of Modern Art in New York, made in Portugal, so you see we are not completely Anglophile!

The date has been set for Monday 22nd June, if you want to participate and would like me to keep track of blogs taking part you can send me an email or leave me a comment, and I will post the list next Monday, that way you can get to see other peoples mugs. I think that Pat from Weaver of Grass will also post a little invitation.

  5. I love the idea of Mug Monday and will participate. I am so sad your pottery isn't taking internet orders yet for your bird series. I really wanted to order the robin one! But I'll keep checking back...I shall have to have a good think about my VERY favorite mugs to post on my blog on the 22nd June!

  12. What a lovely idea. I will have to give my mugs a polish..lol. Off to look at John and Fiona Owen's work now. Oddly enough I have an article about their art show in one of my art folders which I got out of a magazine years ago. I thought then what a fabulous place they live.
