As one who considers herself to be at least aware of the harm humans wreck on the environment, I have to shamefacedly admit to you that up until scarily recently, I was using the paper cups my office provides for my daily coffee fix. I know, I'm sorry. There was a snafu with a mug I thought I had but which I never found, and I couldn't bear to purchase a random mug when I knew there was one a dear friend had made for me somewhere in my midst. Finally, however, I gave up on ever finding said homemade mug, and purchased a generic one. One with which I am now completely in love. So cheery on these gray New York days! So yellow and perfect for tea!
