I was surprised to see a catalogue from Emma Bridgewater in our mailbox today. I couldn't help squealing when I spotted this Oxford mug within the pages. I was born in Oxford, England nearly 37 years ago and though I have not lived there since I was three months old, it is a very special place for me. I noticed that the mug was on sale for 30% off and they were also offering free shipping, so I impulsively bought it. I can't say that I regret the purchase, either!
