This morning my daughter called me at work to let me know there’s a package for me at home from CafePress. I asked her to carefully open the package and call me later about the content. Her school was closed today for Teacher’s Day, so she went to her friend’s and forgot to call me. Tonight when I came home, there was this re-wrapped package that looked never opened. My daughter had done such a nice job of putting everything back together. She knows how much I enjoy opening packages and letters.
Anyhow, as I’m writing this, I’m enjoying my green tea sweetened with honey in my brand new iranian.com mug. The glaze feels good on my lips, I bet it can endure microwave for many years and I love the simple black design on white.
And my daughter is having her hot chocolate in this other mug that we ordered on Iranian.com’s online store. That one has a brown vintage looking map of ancient Iran printed on it – again nice design and quality.
Affarin to whoever the designer and maker were. Could they be JJ?! Nah… the man has many talents from ping pong and tennis to literature and political discussions on people’s blogs, etc…. but designing clay mugs cannot be his thing. So any artist who did this deserves a nice hug from me and my daughter. Who is presently wearing her “baba vote bedeh digeh” black t-shirt, to go out again. She says the soft cotton feels good on her skin (she doesn’t have my habit of washing new items).
Nothing better than simple things in life. I mean emails are great too but opening them is nowhere as exciting as opening packages and letters. Oh, and it just so happens that package had some great contents!
