Mug Obsession

5/30/2015



There is just something about holding a well crafted, beautiful mug, full of warm coffee/tea/hot chocolate in your hands. If you don't know what I am talking about, puh-lease go out, buy a mug that you fancy, prepare yourself a comfort drink of choice, find a comfy place and fully experience it. It's life-changing! I am not sure where my obsession with mugs came from, but it is apparent that I have one. Tall, small, big, short, round, skinny etc. - I love all the mugs! Each with its own personality and feeling that's exuded every time you hold it. I wasn't too big with mugs before but I've warmed up to them during the past year and the idea to start my own mug collection was ignited by the latest mug present I recently received from a dear friend. I think that the special appeal mugs have can stem from a certain memory, feeling or person we relate to them and this 'Hello Gorgeous' beauty truly stole my heart. Maja is a reader, a wonderfully creative person, endearing woman and a dear friend which hadcrafted jewelry I have the honor to wear and enjoy. You've had the chance to see some of her work at the blog - the onyx, turquoise and moonstone batch (here), Essie Dive Bar & matching bracelet post (here) and the Tiger's Eye & labradorite mysterious combo (here). I've also received a beautiful purple amethyst pendant on a silver necklace which will be featured in my resume post of the '30 Days of Things You Freaking Love Challenge' which I've been following-up at Instagram. You can find her at the Bee's Bracelets Facebook page. I was really touched by the Hello Gorgeous mug - it even has a hand-written 'made for Meteo Beauty' note at the bottom, such a classy and thoughtful touch! I love the fact that it's such a wide and big mug so it doubles as a mini muesli bowl, as demonstrated. It's so handy and cute! Perfect for filling my tummy after I come home from a night shift, it seems to hold the ideal amount of muesli or oats with some chopped fruit! To sum everything together, I'm in love with this mug and have started the quest of making a nice collection for myself. I already have perhaps two or three other mugs I like and I'm not trying to hoard mugs but a nice ten-piece collection would be the goal. I'd even be willing to check out some Etsy stores or websites so do pop a recommendation if you fancy - just keep in mind that I'll need worldwide delivery option. So here it is - my ode to all the beautiful mugs! If you share this mug obsession feel free to share your thoughts and photos of your favorites with me - perhaps we can make a collage together? :)

Postoji neki poseban osjecaj koji nas prati dok u rukama drzimo lijepo izradjenu, prekrasnu solju iz koje ispijamo toplu kafu/caj/cokoladu. Ukoliko ne znate o cemu govorim, ucinite sebi uslugu i pri iducoj kupovini sebe pocastite soljom koja vam je na oko ugodna, kada stignete kuci pripremite omiljeni topli napitak u kojem najvise uzivate i smjestite se u ugodan kutak sobe kako bi u potpunosti iskusili tih par minuta koje kao da okrepljuju dusu. Ne znam bas kako je uopste zapocela moja opsesija sa soljama no ocigledno je da sam postala dosta posvecena ovom naizgled obicnom predmetu. Visoke, niske, velike, male, okruglaste, uske, jednobojne, oslikane - volim ih sve! Svaka ima neki svoj karakter  i kreira atmosferu u kojoj uzivamo pri svakom druzenju. Ranije nisam bila toliko zainteresovana za taj ritual ispijanja iz solje no tokom posljednjih godinu dana sam primjetila kako mi redovno zapadne za oko neki model. Odluka da stvorim vlastitu kolekciju ovih meni sada vec dragih predmeta je podebljana i podvucena iskustvom sa soljom koju sam nedavno dobila na poklon od drage prijateljice. Mislim da je dio sarma jedne solje i prizvuk odredjenog sjecanja, osjecaja ili cak asocijacije na pojedine osobe a ova 'Hello Gorgeous' ljepotica me u potpunosti ocarala. Maja je citateljica, iznimno kreativna osoba, krasna zena i draga prijateljica u cijem rucno radjenom nakitu sam imala priliku da uzivam. Imali ste priliku da vidite par njenih radova na blogu do sada - tu je bila isporuka paketica sa oniksom, tirkizom i mjesecevim kamenom (ovdje)post o Essie Dive Bar laku za nokte i uparenoj narukvici (ovdje) ali i clanak o misterioznoj kombinaciji tigrovog oka i labradorita (ovdje). Dobila sam i krasan privjesak od ljubicastog ametista na srebrnom lancicu koji cete  vidjeti i u postu gdje cu rezimirati '30 Days of Things You Freaking Love Challenge'  kojem sam posvecena i mozete u medjuvremenu pratiti napredak na Instagramu. Toplo preporucujem da pogledate kakve sve lijepe stvari Maja pravi i na njenoj Bee's Bracelets Facebook stranici. Dosta me dirnula Hello Gorgeous solja na cijem je dnu napisano 'made for Meteo Beauty' sto smatram divnim, dirljivim detaljem. Ono sto mi se najvise svidja jeste sto ovo nije neka sicusna solja vec je siroka i malo je veca pa je koristim i kao mini posudu za malu porciju muslija. Tako je prakticna i slatka! Kada kuci dodjem iz nocne smjene volim sebi pripremiti musli ili zobenu kasu sa vocem i jesti je bas iz ove solje je mi savrseno dozira porciju koja mi odgovara prije odlaska na spavanac. U svakom slucaju zelim reci da sam definitivno odlucna u namjeri da stvorim lijepu kolekciju ovakvih solja i ne pokusavam da pretjeram kolicinski - set od desetak lijepih komada ce biti sasvim dovoljan. Takodjer razmisljam o pohodu na Etsy ili online stranice u potrazi za necim posebnim pa ako imate neku preporuku - mnogo bih cijenila savjet. I tako je na blogu zavrsila moja oda svim divnim soljama! Ako dijelite ovu opsesiju slobodno podijelite svoja iskustva ili cak fotke vlastitih ljubimica - mozda napravimo zajednicki kolaz? :)
