Win a Wildflower coffee mug and dimple milk jug

If you have a passion for West Country craftsmanship, chances are you already know about These Two Hands. It’s an online shop beautifully curated by Naomi Evans with sustainability and a love of nature at its heart.

Wildflower Coffee Mug & Dimple Milk Jug

wildflower stoneware handmade mug and dimple milk jug made in england for these two hands and one lucky reader will win the set (worth £50) by answering a simple question

I am delighted to be able to offer one lucky reader the chance to win this exquisite Wildflower Coffee Mug (which you can buy here) and Dimple Milk Jug (which you can buy here) set (worth £50). Hand thrown in stoneware by Lindy Garner, each is glazed in glossy speckled white glaze and decorated with wild flowers.

Like Naomi, I also fell in love as soon as I set eyes on these. I am hankering after one of these mugs because they’re so pretty and tactile. I can picture myself in my potting shed early on a Saturday morning, sat on my comfy old garden chair looking out on my flower garden and enjoying the first cup of tea of the day. A simple daily pleasure if ever there was one.

Sustainability & craftsmanship

I love the ethos of These Two Hands and the passionate way Naomi puts her collections together. As well as this beautiful Wildflower coffee mug and dimple milk jug, you’ll find beautiful hand-crafted homeware and gift ideas. Naomi curates her favourite sustainably made designs from local West Country makers as well as commissioning her own unique range of products. There’s a story behind each piece sold and all are made with love, using natural and sustainable materials. Sign up to Naomi’s newsletter and save 10% off your first order.

Discover Naomi’s Summer collection

I asked Naomi to share a few of her thoughts and inspirations behind her latest collection:

‘It has nature at its heart and is a really tactile collection with stoneware, wood and rope textures, meant to be held and enjoyed. It introduces new bespoke yellow and sandy glazed speckled stoneware which I’ve named Sand & Sunshine and a new range of Coastal Clay ceramics, inspired by the rocks and pebbles on the seashore and created from iron-rich Cornish clay for a tactile and unique range of mugs and soap dishes.

There are new gorse yellow and ocean blue stitched rope bowls, mats and coasters created bespoke for me from a photo taken on the Cornish coastal path when I was there in January. There is beautiful coastal artwork inspired by the Kent coast and the seedheads against the sand dunes and a lovely new bespoke hand-stitched hanging hoop for children’s rooms featuring a lovely whale, coral and seaweed design made from linens and fabrics destined for landfill.’

My 3 favourites from Naomi’s collection

Coastal Clay Mug

coastal clay coffee cups these two hands handmade stoneware dark and pale blue with natural clay stripe

How gorgeous is this Coastal Clay mug? Naomi commissioned this design from a local Bristol potter. The brief: to capture an elemental coastal feel reminiscent of rock pools, sand and ocean. Job done, I’d say. I also love the generous size and the tactile earthy iron-rich clay which is dug from the ground in Cornwall. You might be interested to know it’s the same clay used by the Leach Pottery in St Ives.

Handmade Flat Rope Bowls

handmade flat rope bowls storage baskets made from unbleached rope and organic cotton

Handmade by Jessica (Ruby Cubes) at her studio on Dartmoor, it’s the intricate rope work and beautiful colours that I love about these storage baskets/bowls. Naomi commissioned them to reflect yellow gorse and bright blue sea that inspired her on a recent trip to Cornwall. Stitched together using a freeform sewing technique with soft unbleached rope and organic cotton thread, I’d love one of these on my desk to tidy up bits of clutter.

Sand and Sunshine Stoneware Water Jug

With a sunshine yellow and speckled sand glaze, this jug makes a handsome water jug for your table as well as a great vase for flowers. Made on the potter’s wheel by Raphaela Ceramics in Bristol, using stoneware clay and lead-free foodsafe glazes.

      I am a botanist but owing to disability I can now no longer get down among the flowers. This gorgeous jug and mug would bring the flowers back into my hands and bring me joy.

    These are SO pretty and beautifully made. Would love to win a set X

  • Reply Lisa Holt June 24, 2022 at 8:57 pm

    I would gift the jug and mug to my mother who loved gardening all her life but now finds herself only able to view through a window.
    The jug would be for little posies of scented English garden favourites – scabious, cornflowers, sweet peas, rose buds, lavender bringing the scent, colour and texture of the garden inside . The mug for her favourite cuppa- with the jug she would see flowers all year round.

  • Reply Lorelei Tomko June 24, 2022 at 8:57 pm

    What a gorgeous “set”! I would use these to make a pot of tea to enjoy out in my yard, overlooking the river, in our town of Skibbereen!

  • Reply Sharon Clarke June 24, 2022 at 8:59 pm

    I’d use them for their intended purpose, but also use the mug for displaying cut flowers from my garden and pop a small tea light candle into the jug.

  • Reply Susan Wood June 24, 2022 at 9:02 pm

    What an exquisite jug & mug set. My favourite Auntie would have loved these, but she is sadly no longer with us. I would keep these, and enjoy them in her memory.

    Very pretty! I would like to win these to give to our local resident’s association and they would raffle them off to raise money to help projects in my local area.

  • Reply Catherine Parker June 24, 2022 at 9:12 pm

    I would take a break from re-arranging the overgrown garden at my new house and although I won’t yet be surrounded by many flowers, I’ll have the flower covered mug to gaze at while I drink my green tea. In the pretty jug I’ll keep my most treasured bird feathers (mostly from my garden birds with the odd peacock feather); this will take pride of place on my kitchen dresser, bringing beautiful nature indoors.

    This is a beautiful set, how talented you are! The flowers remind me of my many gardens that were destroyed by Hurricane Ida…little by little I am working to replace them! Thanks for the opportunity to win something so lovely!

  • Reply Melanie Brown June 24, 2022 at 9:34 pm

    This mug would replace a handmade coffee mug which I used for years but recently started leaking. It was made by a special needs person and sold through their wonderful shop. The jug would be placed on my kitchen windowsill with colorful flowers that would compliment the design of the jug. This set is beautiful!

  • Reply Sue Pitts June 24, 2022 at 9:39 pm

    They are beautiful. What more can I say. A favourite cup for that wonderful morning cup of tea and a delightful jug, simply to put flowers in, possibly milk! I know I should gift them, but they are so lovely, they might be very hard to part with!

  • Reply Cindi Faith Bennett June 24, 2022 at 9:51 pm

    I would get up very early in the morning, go set out on my patio with a lovely hot beverage in the mug, cream in the jug and sip slowly on my beverage. I love this time as I can watch the sun rise, listen to the birds and other critters as they wake up. I might even have a book to read as well. Just me being present in the moment.

  • Reply Sarah Hill June 24, 2022 at 9:54 pm

    these are so beautiful. I love nature and I grow cut flowers to sell, so these would be perfect for me to enjoy whilst doing my patch

    When I visit my family in Italy, I would take them as gifts to show off British craftsmanship and our beautiful wild flowers.

    I would love these for myself (selfish I know)but I’m having to give up my 3 bed house and garden I’ve cultivated for over 30 years and move into a small bungalow with no garden due to health reasons. I am going to miss the shades of green and pops of colour so much.

  • Reply Angie Tillotson June 24, 2022 at 9:59 pm

    I would take a handsewn picnic rug and cushion to my favourite riverside spot…. or maybe a quiet beach along with a little camping stove etc and this lovely mug. A good book (preferably The Shell Seekers.) The milk jug? That’s for daisies ….or shells.

  • Reply Val June 24, 2022 at 10:05 pm

    Our daughter has just acquired a garden office, after having paid for another from a company that went bankrupt last year, so the office didn’t materialise. The new acquisition has given her some enthusiasm again, after such a disappointment – I would love to gift these two to her for her new office – I know she would absolutely love them.

  • Reply Jan McGeary June 24, 2022 at 10:33 pm

    I would love to sit in my garden drinking my breakfast coffee from this gorgeous mug, it seems just the right shape to wrap your hands around, and I can almost smell the flowers which decorate it. The jug, well I think that would have to hold a second cup – one just isn’t going to be be enough.

    What luck it would be to win a mug like this. I would feel as if I were holding a handful of earth and flowers from the Machair I experienced on holidays in the Hebrides; holidays as beautiful, genuine and pure as this mug.

  • Reply Clare Yarnold June 24, 2022 at 10:50 pm

    The cup and jug would be perfect as memories of my parents. My Dad was a keen gardener and my Mum loved the flowers (and fruit and vegetables) he grew. I would use the cup for my delicious black coffee, and the jug to hold flowers.

  • Reply Fleur Moody June 24, 2022 at 11:10 pm

    I would use for my tea and oat milk when sat at my desk working away would give me such pleasure to feel the beauty of the clay and admire the gorgeous delicate flowers a true moment of calm in a busy day – bliss just hoping to be lucky x

  • Reply Vicki Page-Clark June 24, 2022 at 11:57 pm

    I’d love to use these for their intended purpose, watching the sun rise while I take some time for myself. Their beautiful design and texture remind me of all of the beautiful gifts mother nature has given us.

    The jug filled with wildflowers nearby…..

  • Reply Patricia Poole June 25, 2022 at 12:52 am

    I would fill up the jug with some of the wild flowers that grow in the fields around where I live, and I would place it on the little table in my reading corner where I like to have my morning tea. It would give me so much pleasure and a true sense of peace. I lost my lovely mum a few weeks ago at the fantastic age of 97, and it’s times like this that I can sit and just be – she loved handmade pottery and it would bring me so much closer to her, in the quiet morning with my pottery and my book.

  • Reply Monique Durant June 25, 2022 at 2:12 am

    I am now a retired professor, learning to write fiction. Creative writing is something I have longed to do for several decades. I would use this sweet, whimsical little cup and jug to make tea for my morning writing sessions. Thank you for the sweet knitting patterns!

  • Reply Susan B June 25, 2022 at 2:21 am

    I would invite the Queen to afternoon tea; buy two extra mugs while I wait for her written acceptance (one for her lady-in-waiting and one for me); make sure the house is spotless and gleaming before she arrives; practise my curtsey until I get it right; make a batch of scones to serve with the tea and, on her arrival, have a natter to the Queen about her Green Canopy project while showing her the flowers in my little garden (I think she’d like them) before serving afternoon tea.

    As I strongly suspect the Queen would be a no-show (LOL), I would simply use and enjoy these lovely objects because I like beautiful things – and these really are beautiful.

    I would use the mug for my first coffee of the day which I usually have wondering around the garden and sit to listen to the birds and bees and get my heart and mind ready for the day. I would use the jug to put cut posies on my husband’s table as he has terminal cancer and is now bed bound but still likes to see what’s flowering each day

  • Reply Angela June 25, 2022 at 7:09 am

    I would love to sit and contemplate the wild spaces that we are going to create, inspired by the beautiful wildflower mug and jug. A pot of earl grey and a quiet hour to design a haven for wildlife., perfect!

  • Reply Stephanie Verity June 25, 2022 at 9:14 am

    This little jug and bowl fills my mind with sounds and smells of a beautiful summers day. I would take this little set on an afternoon picnic to the Yorkshire dales where we would sit out in an open wildflower meadow the sky cornflower blue , the air warm and filled with the scent of summer blooms and the sound of the blackbird singing from the nearby fence and I would know this little jug and bowl would match the most perfect of surroundings .

  • Reply Bridget Johnson June 25, 2022 at 9:36 am

    They are beautiful. I would use them mug every time I had a coffee it would remind me of the wild flowers in the field by us. I am missing them this year due to an operation. The milk jug deserves to be on show and I would fill it with flowers from my garden. Fingers crossed

  • Reply Sally Collingwood June 25, 2022 at 10:15 am

    I would gift them to my lovely daughter-in-law who is incredibly kind to me. She has a large family but always makes sure all is well with me. Since I came out of hospital after nine weeks she brings me food and does lots of little jobs for me. Only last week she planted lots of flowers on my patio which I can see from my ‘invalid’ chair. She would love the beautiful mug and jug.

    How beautiful is this wildflower set. I would so love to keep this for myself and enjoy using it. I adore pretty china and make paper flowers for my crafts.

    Would gift them to my daughter who (unlike me!) has followed in her grandad’s footsteps and begun to create a lovely garden. She has worked so hard and hasn’t really relaxed with a cuppa and enjoyed the fruits of her labours! This beautiful mug and jug would surely inspire her to do just that!

  • Reply Lita Elizabeth Ashley June 25, 2022 at 11:38 am

    I would use the mug and jug every day as they are too lovely not to be seen every time I have a cuppa. The jug would also be great as a cream jug when I enjoy the strawberries my husband grows for me. I’m crossing my fingers in hopes I’m lucky.
