What is it about getting into your comfy clothes at the end of the day and settling down to enjoy a cup of tea and a biscuit or two? It’s a comfort thing I suppose. The evening rituals of relaxing and unwinding with a hot drink on the sofa. And the choice of mug is very important. We all have a favourite mug or two – one that makes us think of a special time or place or person.
My favourite mug can vary (I’m a bit flaky like that) but I can say without a doubt my mug of the moment is my new Cornishware mug. If like me you were brought up in a household where Cornishware kitchen items were prevalent then these blue and white stripes will be familiar to you. The company that was once called T.G Green and set up back in 1884 was renamed Cornishware a few years ago and the company have done a beautiful job of retaining everything that is familiar and lovely with the kitchenware brand whilst modernising their offering just enough to appeal to the younger generation. I could have opted for a pink, yellow, green, black, grey, violet or red striped mug but I went for the most classic one – cornish blue.
I’m a bit of a collector when it comes to homewares, especially retro and retro inspired pieces. Now that I have my first ever piece of Cornishware, I sense the collector in me getting a bit over excited about the prospect of adding to my single large ceramic mug. Maybe I’ll get a milk jug or utensil holder next and then I’ll definitely know I’m turning into my Mum! Her collection still looks as good today as I’m sure it did twenty plus years ago when she first bought them. With Cornishware you know you’re getting quality craftmanship.
So to celebrate my new-found love of Cornishware I’m holding a special giveaway for you! Cornishware not only sent me a lovely mug but they are offering you the chance to win a “Tea For One” set, worth £30. The winner will receive a lovely teacup and saucer and a small teapot (the same as in the image above). Sound good to you? Simply enter by way of the form below, and remember, the more you do, the greater the chance you have of winning. Good luck! The giveaway closes on Wednesday 27 May and the winner will be announced on Thursday 28 May.
