This weekend, Pier 1 was having a pretty big sale on their patio furniture and some other things. I can’t resist the siren song of 50% off and I needed some mugs in the house since we only have two. So these little beauties came home with me:
This one was quite a steal at $4, marked down from $8. Earlier that morning, I had thought to myself that I needed a dedicated coffee spoon. Well, this mug has it! It’s my favorite shade of blue, too. I don’t know why, but the rubber base also pleases me.
Right above these mugs was this cutie:
How could I resist such a fetching look? She’s a bit bigger than what I like to have my morning cafe con leche (espresso with warmed milk) but she’ll do for my evening cup of Good Earth green tea.* I’m not a fan of pure green tea, but this one is really nice. The chamomile has been helping me to relax before bed and it gives it a nice smooth flavor. I recommend using a spoonful of good honey instead of sugar. It really helps to bring out the earthy flavors of the tea. Now having Hootina hold my tea, makes my pre bedtime routine more special.
*N.B.: I was not compensated in any way for that plug. I just really like their stuff!
