Yoni glasses

Today the post van drove up and delivered a box I had been waiting for .. with supplies I had purchased recently in Holland :) I had actually forgotten that I had purchased some 'Yoni' glasses whilst sipping a coffee in a café in Holland ....

~YONI~ glasses .. for coffee .. oh, of course they could be for tea too!

Yoni of course has another meaning .. click here to see what else it means (other than a super cool way to drink that hot cuppa without burning your fingers on the glass because it is double glassed so it keeps your beverage hot while keeping your fingers cool) ...

some may find it strange to drink from something shaped like a 'you know what' and well I suppose it is .. still, they are pretty jolly cool if you ask me!

Ahhh, I remember you described them when we met in Eindhoven! Now I'm glad I get to see them! They are very pretty! I do kind of like it though to warm my fingers around a hot cup of coffee! ;)

When I read that I -as a Dutchie- must know what those glasses are about, I thought; 'what? Glasses shaped as yoni's?' Ha, I knew about the sanskrit meaning of that word and thought you'd lost it :-) but they are way cool! Ha!

ROFL! We talked about this when you were here, I remember lol!

But hey I have been looking for these since they've been on a coffee commercial here. My! They are gorgeous. So cool that you see the liquid float in them.
Remember they are made by YOlanda and NIco ;)!
