Are you, or do you know an avid DIY-er, cooker, camper or gardener? Sounds like these Hobbies mugs by Snowden Flood may be the perfect home accessory.
This new mug from Snowden Flood celebrates one of London most famous examples of 60s architecture – the Post Office Tower (otherwise known as the BT Tower).
Snowden Flood has been featured quite a few times on this site before: for her work featuring famous London landmarks and her take on design classics. A slightly different type of style is evident in her new range but still one that's pleasingly retro – as demonstrated with these fairground mugs.
The mugs feature illustrations influenced by traditional British folk art – indeed as the name suggests they are influenced by old-fashioned funfair signage. Each mug is decorated in a different colour with a different fairground ride style slogan.
The bone china mugs also draw on another British tradition in their manufacture as they are made in Stoke-On-Trent.
You can buy the mugs individually for £18.50 or as a set of four for £70.

This isn't the first time we've featured the iconic outline of Battersea power station and I doubt it will be the last. It's not the first time we've featured a Snowden Flood take on it either. However, the design is given a new twist with Snowden Flood's Battersea toile fabric plate.
Unlike her usual designs, which normally feature a plain, colourful outline of the building, here she's gone much further back in the history of textiles for inspiration – to the eighteenth century no less – and filled the outline with a pretty pastoral toile pattern. The contrast works really well and hints at something of the long history of the Thames and its activities.
It's an unusual piece that costs £35.
