Cups of Comfort
My favorite drink is coffee! Yours? I know I'm by far not the only one who can't start a day properly without a cup of coffee, or a 'bakkie troost' as people (especially older people) in The Netherlands call it, meaning 'a cup of comfort'.
For my parents, as being a bit older people, I made two cups that I handlettered with a porcelain pencil. Both quotes are from songs. The first one is from a Dutch song and means 'Coffee, coffee, delicious cup of coffee', the second one is from a song by Dr. Hook, namely Cookie and Lila. Maybe you remember the post from last year, about going to Dublin with my father to go to a concert of Dr. Hook in the Olympia Theatre. I made this mug is as much for coffee as to remember that great trip.
In a little jar I've put instant mix for Wiener Melange. I thought it would be a nice little Christmas present for coffee lovers.
