I’M ON TO YOU COFFEE {and you too Mr Teacup}

[ 0 ] May 2, 2012 |

Here’s the thing. I’ve been atrocious the past couple of days. I am only willing to admit this because I’ve found the source of my inner Satan, and it’s quite simple - I ran outta coffee and that makes me the Devil.  I’ve tried everything in my power to ignore my dumb coffee maker each morning, but it’s smug empty pot taunts me anyway as if its sole purpose in life is to make me suffer.  So, I proceed with the most obvious next course of action –   I flip it the double bird and kick the kitchen cabinet.  IN YOUR FACE!

In all seriousness though, it really is an awful feeling not to get your morning fix.  I’ve been trying to replace it with something “similar” like tea.  Um, I’m sorry, but TEA (yeah, I yelled it)…TEA is NOTHING like coffee.  It’s watery and boring.  The box is all pretty and colorful making it seem like it’s the awesomest thing on the planet.  But, really it’s just a warm drink impostor and I’m not afraid to say it out loud.

Fine, in tea’s defense, there are some teas that are pretty killer.  But, they are no replacement for the ambrosial taste of fresh ground java juice.  Coffee totally has me whipped.  It’s the can and I’m the cream.  Anyways, if you can believe it, all of this madness somehow led me to the cutest lil’ shop on Etsy (below).  Funny, how life works out that way :)   Check it out!

Mr Teacup is an adorable shop on Etsy created by Joanne Eubank (who loves all things tea, moustache, and sewing).  They “make beautiful crockery inspired by literature.  Fragments of prose are written on porcelain, like an old love letter you never want to lose”.  Remember when I said, I like a good conversation piece?  Well, here are three lil pieces of convo that would fit the bill:

Lionel Richie hand drawn teapot for $51 bucks

Oh my gosh.  If I had this teapot, I’d be singing Lional Richie songs like it was my J-O-B.  Ha ha.  I can’t get it out of my head!  Hello…???  Is it me you’re looking for? 

Find it:  here



Mustache Mug in Lime Green for $27 bucks

I’m just gonna go ahead and put it out there.  I’m not sure I’d buy a mug of any kind for 27 doll-hairs, BUT, this one puts a smile on my face and doesn’t make me want to punch my coffee pot, so I might have to give it the ol’ college try.

  Be Awesome Today – Hand drawn circus tent bowl / dish for $26 bucks

Ha ha.  It’s a plate that tells you to be awesome.  Imagine having tea and crumpets with the Queen (hey, it could happen).  You trick her into eating the last crumpet just so you can hear her say “be awesome today” in her kick-ass British accent.  ha ha ha ha.  I love it.

And, that’s that.


P.S. (Awesome “cup of shut the f#@$& up” mug via “Etsy shop:  Teah Vaughn Pottery)
