First it is an unusual color and it happens to be my favorite color. The loon is a symbol of the Adirondacks and takes me back to a time when I used to hear their mournful cry. I'm not sure if that is what you call it, but I like the sound. I always enjoy whatever I buy from you, keep up the good work :)
These chunky mugs are well designed and well made. The heat from the contents doesn't find its way into the handle, even after several minutes. Very comfortable to hold or to cradle with both hands on a cold morning. Highly recommended.
