Have a hard time smiling before you drink your first cup of coffee in the morning? No more. Let this quotation from knitting humorist Stephanie Pearl-McPhee help you start your morning with a smile. :)

"The only things that will survive the apocalypse are cockroaches, twinkies, and Red Heart Supersaver."

Are you a yarn snob? This mug is for you! And what a great gift for a knitter with a sense of humor. It's one of a trio of mugs with quotations on knitting from some of the wisest.... and funniest knitting writers of our time: Stephaie Pearl-McPhee, Tracey Ullman, and the mother of modern knitting, Elizabeth Zimmermann.

This newly purchased white porcelain mug is decorated with hand lettering. The calligraphy is written with a black ceramic pen then baked. It is sturdy and resistant to dish washing. Each mug is individually hand lettered, so each one will vary slightly.

The 4 inch high vitrified porcelain mug hold 12 ounces of liquid.

The author of the quotation (Stephanie Pearl-McPhee) is written on the back of the mug.

PLEASE NOTE: All the lettering is done by hand and will look similar to the photos, but not exact. I use porcelain paint which is not uniformly black. There may be variation of greys and blacks. The way the paint behaves is out of my control. If you are looking for an item that looks like it was printed by a machine, this is perhaps not for you. If you celebrate HANDMADE, you're in the right place!

This mug is right-handed. If you'd prefer your quotation to be readable when holding the mug in your left hand, please message me at the time of purchase. Allow 2-3 days.

I recommend washing your new mug GENTLY BY HAND, and do not scrub the hand lettering with abrasives.

If you are interested in a custom mug, please convo me. I am happy to produce a mug with your favorite saying or quotation.

Shipping is via USPS Priority Mail in a well-packed sturdy box. Delivery confirmation included. The shipping price does not include insurance. If you would like insurance, please contact me before you make your purchase and I will set up a custom listing.

Lettered by hand in a smoke free home.

Mugs available in white, bone, or aqua. If you would like bone or aqua, please message me at the time of purchase (add 2 days for bone or aqua mugs).
