This mug was worth the wait! I preordered 4 of these mugs to add to the growing collection of Balsam Lane items I have. The whimsical cardinal on the handle is adorable. The mug is large, weighty and the gold lined cabin and stars are a favorite addition on this collection. I like it so much that I sent a mug to both my mother and my daughter who has a growing collection of Balsam Lane too. She adores the design as much as I do!
