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!

This is such a beautiful mug and Kate is so lovely that she makes the shopping experience extra special. I ordered this for my daughter and Kate showed me what it would look like, before it was glazed, to ensure I was happy. Her shop is a dream for book lovers and the mug, now it has arrived, is absolutely perfect. My daughter adores it. You even have the option of putting a message on the bottom. Very happy indeed.

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.

Just lovely! Kate is so talented, and so nice and helpful. I love getting nice things for my home - and this is my new tea-drinking favourite (and I drink a lot of tea!). Thank you Kate.
