Sometimes You Just Need To Go Shopping!

I'm a big Susan Branch fan.
I love her books.

Susan Branch

And, I love her mugs.
She designs them all.
First on paper!
She sends the designs off to England where they are made.
Dunoon, fine bone china.

Susan Branch Mugs

Many months ago I ordered the first three of her mugs.
The mugs are covered with her wonderful watercolor designs --
even on the handles.
They arrived in time for my birthday coming up this week.

Susan Branch Mugs

Each mug is very different.
They hold 16oz of tea, soup, stew -- anything you might want 16oz of!
I admit, I haven't tried beer in a mug!

I think my favorite is the Go Green or Earth/Nature mug.
I love the quote:
"Most know the earth is utterly enchanted."

Susan recently announced that she had more mugs in the works.
I decided I just needed to go shopping!

Shop I did.

There are four new designs:
Bluebird, Martha's Vineyard, and Santa -- all 16oz.
Some folks requested a smaller cup and 11oz Autumn will fit that bill.

Each cup is sold separately or a group of three
(Bluebird, Martha's Vineyard, and Santa).
Autumn is sold separately only.

New designs mean the old designs will be retired.

Yes, I ordered all four -- Christmas presents for me!

You can find details on her blog -- click on the shopping icon.

Wishing YOU well and much joy!

Those (UK) pint mugs are lovely, would love to have one full of tea sitting here beside my PC on my desk right now!
Happy Mosaic Monday.

What a talented individual, Susan Branch is! Such sweet and whimsical designs that cover her jumbo cups - the more space for her charming art!

Aren't they the cutest! I just recently discovered Emma Bridgewater mugs. And even more recently discovered Susan Branch. I've only one of her books, 'A Fine Romance,' because I love England. But I can see that I need to check into her others as well. Her style is charming!

Angie said...

I have seen several references to Susan Branch - I will have to follow your link and learn more about her - her designs are certainly enchanting and enticing! Have a great week!

I too love Susan Branch but have never seen the mugs. They are delightful! I may need to go shopping. Thanks for showing them off, and happy birthday!

Snap, Watercolor is one of my favorite looks. I love the mugs and a big size is right up my alley as well. Thanks for sharing. Sylvia D.

Oh my! I love her books and art too! You sure are tempting all of us! Think I'll go least start a wish list! Hugs!

The SB mugs are sweet and I' sure you'll enjoy sipping many different things from them. I did some retail therapy myself today - I feel much better. ;-)

Thanks so much for dropping by the Dollhouse blog. Sometimes I just run out things to write about at The Garden Spot. I love Susan Branch's mugs. I, too, will have to go shopping.

Susan's mugs are so pretty--very much like her lovely eye candy books!
