THE SPIRITU 4
HEAD, HEART, STOMACH, & FEET
2 coffee mugs from my great grandmother, Enriqueta.
How do those mugs give you inspiration?
They remind me of my childhood when I visited my grandma’s house. My grandma was always sitting in an old wooden chair next to the wood stove, where she always kept hot water, chicken soup, and tortillas. She was always drinking her coffee in cute peltre mugs. I didn’t notice then since I was very young, but my family says she always added a bit of tequila to her coffee, which is very cute and funny to me now.
I have this image of her in my mind because she was always so peaceful and calm, her windows open so she could listen to the birds outside, the cars passing, her parrot eating. Her voice was always so soft and serene. These memories remind me that the simplest things are the ones that bring us the most joy. I relate to her because I love my moments alone drinking my coffee or my tea in the mornings, being in silence and enjoying every sip. I also have a love for coffee mugs and launched my line this year.
