It's a mugs game!

One of the things that I love about this time of the year is local artist, Howard Robinson's annual release of his new bone china mugs.  He does a limited edition and they are always of local scenes... and so far I have collected over a dozen of them.
And finally this year's have arrived.

Howard chooses local landmarks, this year we have The Billet Pub from the old town, Hadleigh Castle, The Arches, the beach huts, the signal box and the lagoon over on Two Tree Island.
It is so lovely to be reminded of how blue the sky was in the Summer when we have Milk of Magnesia skies at the moment...
And here is my favourite, it is Hadleigh Castle and is rather special because it shows the 2012 Olympic Mountain Bike course which is all around the castle.
So if you are in Leigh over the weekend, pop in and see Howard and Joy at Gallery 3... but please leave some mugs for me!

I think it's lovely when you can have things in your house that actually mean something and this collection of mugs fits the bill - something to make you smile every time you have a cuppa

What a lovely collection. All with an original design. It doesnt come any better. I so envy you.

The mugs are wonderful, but I'd be loath to spoil them by actually using them for tea or coffee!

I rather like the little seascapes too - he's certainly a talented man with an eye for painting things that make instant sunshine.
