We all know how the British love to commemorate important royal 'happenings' and they don't get much better than the upcoming marriage of Prince William and Miss Catherine Middleton. The Wedgwood Museum in Barlaston has announced the production of a good-looking mug with a design heritage harking back to Richard Guyatt, a well-known and admired Wedgwood designer. The Museum has a wonderful website, you'll find a link to it here on our blog, or you can Google the Wedgwood Museum Barlaston and you'll find it. We haven't yet tried to order ours (and are not sure they are available via mail order from the Museum Shop), but it seems like the perfect thing for drinking my tea when I attend a party at 5AM on 4/29 to watch the wedding with my fellow Daughters of the British Empire members. We're supposed to wear our jammies & a fascinator! I think I feel a blogpost in the making, but it's still awhile away! Click the title of this post to read all about the new mug and its talented designer. There is a link in the article to the Museum's site.
Here is a GREAT article all about the subject of Royal Souvenirs, it's long so get a cuppa (preferably a royal souvenir mug or cup) and relax and enjoy!
