“Do you wish me a good morning, or mean that it is a good morning whether I want it or not; or that you feel good this morning; or that it is a morning to be good on?” -J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit

This clever little speech comes from the beginning of The Hobbit, when Gandalf first meets Bilbo. Gandalf, of course, is the speaker, and his irony calls attention to the great number of uses we may put the words "good morning" to. A fabulous mug to drink out of during your mornings, while you sit and prepare for the day, determining whether you in fact are bound for a good morning yourself.

I painted on a medium-sized rust colored mug for this quote, with a black base, and added a tangled vine design to the corners on either side of the handle, to emphasize the fantastical, Middle-earth quality of the quote.

For hobbits and wizards.

All of my work is done with heat-set ceramic paint, and will do very well with dishwashers and the ordinary passage of time. I would, however, recommend against the use of strong abrasives.
