A porcelain take on the postcard

Postcup_images

With summer slowly coming to an end, l have been fondly looking through the many postcards that friends, and family have kindly wrote to me over the past few months. There's something rather thrilling about receiving a postcard through the mailbox, reading about people's adventures, admiring the stamp design, and smiling at the squeezing of text into a designated space.

This witty take on the postcard by the contemporary home and life accessoriesTM company Bailey Doesn't Bark is most certainly an innovative portrayal of the classic postcard format. You simply write (or draw) your message onto the mug, leave to dry, and pop into the oven to bake, and there you have it - a permanent postmugTM set in porcelain.

On another porcelain note, you may also like to check out the Teabag and Teaspoon collection - simply unique in concept, and execution.

Drinking a soothing mug of tea, or indeed writing a postcard has been given a freshly interactive twist!
