(Steel mug by twothirds)
(Steel mug by ModCloth)
There is something about enamel steel mugs that makes me want one. I never had one but get a feeling of nostalgia related to them. Maybe there was one at the house where I spent a lot of time growing up - my grandparents lived there and then my aunt and uncle. There is a garden and huge trees near the house so I always think of it as a country house. Or maybe I feel a bit sad that my family was not together enough to do normal family things like hiking where such mugs would be used by the fire.
One day, I hope to have a little house with a little garden and I promise to myself, that there will be an enamel steel mug there that I can drink lovely herbal teas from while sitting outside.
