Unfortunately I can’t attach pictures as I sent this mug to my boyfriend who is stuck in England at the moment (I’m in Australia) but I can’t recommend Kate and her shop enough. I wanted a birthday present that would be special and personal and she did such a fantastic job- he loves it so much and from what I’ve seen, it’s just gorgeous! Kate kept in contact throughout the whole process and sent pictures and updates- the item shipped quickly, arrived safely and the gift note was handwritten and on a cute postcard, which was such a lovely touch. Kate was also lovely to correspond with and offered suggestions to make it even more special. I really wouldn’t hesitate to order from Kate again- the hand painting is beautiful, the mug is a lovely size according to boyfriend and everything was just what I wanted. 10/10!

I cannot stress how wonderful this mug is. It’s not a mug it’s art. It’s the best gift I have ever given anyone and the recipient was BEYOND delighted. Get one. For everyone you know. So wonderful. Kate was super helpful and went above and beyond to make this special. I want one. All my friends want one. Get one. ❤️

Fantastic unique item, Kate really helped me shape my Enid Blyton themed mug asking lots of questions to get it just right - it’s a fab size and looks amazing, I absolutely love it and love having my tea from it whilst I read my books.

My mug, bought for a daughter's birthday, has just arrived and it is just what I wanted. From start to finish Kate was quick to respond to my emails and offered some really helpful suggestions to make it even more special. She kept me up to date with progress at every point. Would recommend her shop to anyone.
