Handpainted coffee-mugs (christmas 2011)

It's with slight sadness I realize that I've been procrastinating instead of updating my blog. But enough with the waiting, it's my birthday today and I have some time to kill before going out. So why not breathing some life into this dusty little place?

For my brother, his wife, my sister, her husband and my mothers husband I hand painted some mugs:
My brother is a carpenter, so I thought it would fit.

Johanna is my brothers wife.

Greta is my sister, she got the hat and bow skull. Mikael is her husband.

Torvald is my mothers husband, and the closest thing I've ever had to a father. His mug looks different from the others, because he loves flowers. He spends all his work hours underground, so I thought he'd like a reminder of the beautiful garden he's grown at home.

I figured this would be a good start to my 2011 christmas-gift-listing. I did make more porcelain gifts, but they're for another entry. 

Don't run with scissors. 


  1. Such great mugs, I really love the skulls. I also love the story about why you painted flowers on your mothers husbands mug - very sweet:)

  2. Happy Birthday Katt!! Hope had a great day. The mugs look awesome....I'm jealous =)


Oooh, Hi! I love comments, they go awesome with the background, don't you think? ;)
