Mummy Bear Mug

I am a big fan of Jane's beautiful drawings and, as a mother bear myself, I saw this mug and decided it had to be mine. Everything about this mug works. It is a lovely big size but because of the quality of the china it still feels delicate. I use this mug EVERY SINGLE DAY!

Newcastle/Sunderland T-shirts

I received my T-shirts and I love them. The senses were taken back from the eyes and the smell I have not had a T- shirt smell so nice. Also the cotton is beautifully soft!
