Spring is in the air! Posted on 30 Mar 09:17

Spring has finally sprung and it's the perfect time to clear out your cupboards and get some shiny new mugs!

We've always been fans of the higgledy-piggledy look when it comes to mugs and take a very mix and match approach when buying with nary a set in sight in our kitchen. However, it's definitely time for a bit of out with the old and in the with new so we're making space for a brand new set.

To get some Spring feeling in the kitchen, we're opting for a selection of our fresh Julie Steel designs for their vibrant colours and animal themes. So hard to pick a favourite, but if we had to, it would be this rainbow coloured Neon Fox version!
