Astrology Mugs

Pices Astrology Mug

Pices

Art and astrology are beautifully, and somewhat whimsically, combined in these astrology mugs. The bright and retro design is reminiscent of my the set of “Laugh In” — I can almost see Goldie Hawn dancing in her go-go boots!

This featured mug is Pisces. If you just like the design, you don’t have to tell anyone it’s supposed to represent Pisces!

This mug is on the large side at 10 ounces. But, it’s included here for those of you who either like your lungos big, or you just like extra room in your cups. It’s also a good size for cappuccinos. It’s only 3″ high, so it will fit nicely on an Essenza machine. The diameter is 3.75″.

The design house here is interesting… these mugs are designed by French Bull, a specialty design shop that creates its pieces with melamine, an organic compound used in many items, including retro-themed housewares.

So, whether you like the funy ’70s design, or if you’re just into astrology, maybe this is the lungo cup for you! Get one for each member of your family, or have a lungo party — just be sure to invite one friend from each Zodiac sign!

Norman Ave Thermo Mugs

Norman Ave Thermo MugsHere are some really cool mugs with a design that can only come from Scandinavia: the Norman Ave mug by Creative Danes.

First, the important specs: these are 3.5″h x 3.25″d and each holds 210 ml or roughly 7.1 ounces. Yes, this is a bit high, especially for the Nespresso Essenza. So, if you’ve got that machine, you’d have to hold this mug in place while your lungo dispenses… but if you have the Pixie, you can flip the drip tray down to make room for a higher mug.

More about this mug: each is hand painted (but there’s no paintbrush!), and each features insulated double walls to keep beverages hot. So, it’s a lot like the Bodum lungo cup, in that sense. Also, each comes with a porcelain lid that doubles as a saucer — a very Danish touch!

Okay, now about the source where you can buy these puppies: Apt2B.com. If you live in the L.A. area, you may know this place. This is a group of with-it designers who know retail, but mostly they know what people want: style without expense.  They make furnishing a home or apartment easy (at least in the L.A. area) by delivering all of your decor at once. When you visit their web site (they don’t have a retail store, eliminates expensive overhead), check out their room packages: they’ve got it all planned out, or you can design your own. Funny thing is, this is a group of really stylish people, but they don’t have Nespresso machines… Seems every apartment in L.A. should have a Pixie!

Set of 4 Norman Ave Thermo Mugs: $70.00. Order now from Apt2B.com.

[Note this: Unless you live in L.A., you’ll be shown a message that says these cannot be delivered to you. But, Alex at Apt2B says he’ll be happy to work with you, so be sure to send them in inquiry!]

“Favorite Blends” Lungo Cup Set

Lungo Cuup SetHere’s a set of lungo mugs made just for Nespresso fans: each features a lungo blend. So, when you’re in the mood for a Fortissio, no problem. Finezzo? Got it. There’s a mug for each of the four lungo blends, so if you get them all, you’ll  have a set that’s ready for each of your lungo moods!

The design is a classic coffee-shop blackboard motif with chalk-like writing and drawing — and, of course, the lettering is color coded to match your pods! The message is printed on two sides of the cup. Since this is from Zazzle, you have the opportunity to customize this mug, if you’d like. When you click on the images below, you’ll be taken to Zazzle where you can change the words on each side. So, maybe you’d like to make the message more personal… something like: “Mike’s Favorite: Fortissio,” or “For After 7 o’Clock: Decafeinato.” You decide, or just keep the cups as is.

Each mug is hand printed by Zazzle.com, where you’ll receive excellent customer service. Microwave and dishwasher safe.
