Handmade black coffee mug tea cup cozy with 'the book was better' on white wool patch.

The book was better. It always is, isn't it? There have been some damn fine adaptations, eg the LOTR trilogy. But really, the films always pale in comparison. I don't know why we keep doing it to ourselves. Why do we keep going in expecting the book to be brought to life exactly as how we envisioned it? It's because we're idiots. We should just not see the films, or we should go in expecting a Jim Carey film. Then, no matter what happens we won't be disappointed. Either we'll miss the travesty of a crappy adaptation, or we'll at least be relieved Jim Carey wasn't in it. And if Jim Carey is in the next crappy movie version of one of my favorite books, well geez I hope the freaking Mayans are right and I'm put out of my misery soon... but not until after the Hobbit comes out!

If you would like to customize this cozy in any way I would be happy to do so. I can change the colors, the embroidery- whatever you want I can do (not as well as the book did though). I can even make it a bottle or travel mug cozy for only $2.00 more. Just send me a message so we can create your own unique design.

Note, cozy will be made to order so please expect some slight variation.
