A Fine Quotation

Wind in the Willows Quote Mug

The Wind in the Willows is such a timeless childhood classic, though meant to be enjoyed at any age. Kenneth Grahame has long fired up imaginations with his characters of Toad of Toad Hall, Badger, Ratty and Moley. He takes us to a time when life felt a bit simpler but still had a bit of the "hurry!" to it. Although Toad keeps the audience laughing and groaning with his antics, the real reason I love this book is because it is a sweet and simple tale of friendship between four personalities who are as different from each other as it is possible for individuals to be! The camaraderie between these fine folk, and stick-togetherness through thick and thin, is what makes the book. It reminds us that we need one another for good times and bad. To recognize the need for others is a healthy and tremendously beautiful thing. My ode to friendship comes in the form of these watercolor portraits of the characters in Grahame's beloved story.

The portraits of Toad, Badger, Ratty and Moley wrap around this mug with an adventurous quote picked out to share among them. This quote wraps around the mug as well, directly below the portraits, saying: "The world before you, and a horizon that's always changing!"

Keep it as a reminder that time is short and yet it marches steadily on. Keep your friends close and fight to keep them. They are worth your every effort!

The mug is dishwasher and microwave safe, and is great for hot or cold liquids. It features a brown colored interior and handle, and holds approximately 11 oz of liquid.
