morning tea with barbapapa

Nothing like a milky tea sweetened with honey in one of my favourite mugs to start off the morning. I got this cute mug from my sister this past Christmas, since she knows I love the Barbapapas and love to collect barba-stuff. Now I use it almost everyday... I think it makes my tea taste even sweeter.

OMG! That is so cute! You know, I thought about you the other day when I was looking at some rompers for Devon with barbapapa-ish appliques on it! Have a great day:)

Now that's a cute mug! Never heard of that. Assuming it's a cartoon or something?

I love seeing old mugs. And while I've never heard of these characters, I think it would make any drink taste better.

An exceedingly cheerful way to start off the morning! Since most of us Yanks are unfamiliar with barbapapa...do share more about them!

Julie said...

Oh-my-goodness! LOVE the Barbapapas! You know, we have a blanket from when our 2nd son was born with the Barbapapas all over it, definitely a keeper!

That is so cute! What are barbapapas? Is this the Barney of the new century? Or am I way off. Either way, the tea sounds yummy.

Anna said...

Chrisy said...

yes i think it would make the tea nicer...it's so bright and happy looking! i've got some of those Baileys Yum cups and stuff always tastes better from them...

Rheea said...

Oh oh... you have the cutest cup! I'm sure you don't need much sugar for your coffee with a cup like that eh. I have a piglet mug I use and it never fail to make me smile drinking from it everyday. :)

Have a sweet day~

germandolls said...

Yes! this brings back childhood memories. We must be the same age...
Yay for Barbapapa!

CinnamonAndSass said...

Haha! That mug is so cheery. I admit I have a favorite little coffee mug from anthropologie...and if it's a Monday morning (especially) I have to drink out of my mug, no matter what, or the day just doesn't start out right!

I have fond memories of the Barbapapas used to watch the show a lot and it was my most favourite show of all time. I also had a plastic Barbapappa poncho type raincoat as a child and was devastated when it ripped. I adore the Barbapapas so much and even link to their site from my blog. :O)

heehee!! i love barbapapa too, i used to have a book collection of them... i love how he started as a little blob in the garden and grew up, up, up!!

he reminds me of my pal grimace.

i have a grimace glass that i drink my water out of, and in the morning i have my milky tea out of a wayne's world mug!! funny the weird cups one can get attached to...! :)

I had a video for a while but had a hard time figuring out what barbappa was! Thanks for the insight...very cute.
