Why the two sided mugs?
I prefer to say right and left handed mug ? As a lefty myself, I know how odd it can seem to be using an apparently plain – especially when you’ve gone to the trouble of finding the perfect design. You want to show it off as you drink. And yet there’s also something lovely about being able to view the pattern yourself – righty’s this is a pleasure you don’t get that often. And so here’s the solution – a double sided design so we can all enjoy asking the question “What Would Barbara Stanwyck Do?”
About BARBARA STANWYCK.
Born Ruby Catherine Stevens in Brooklyn in 1907, her mother was killed in a streetcar accident she was four years old. Shortly after her father abandoned the family, leaving the young Stanwyck and her older brother to be raised by their older sister, neighbours and a series of foster homes. She left school at 13, was a Ziegfeld Girl by age 18, Broadway sensation by 21. The following year she moved to Hollywood, becoming the highest paid woman in America in 1944! Her career spanned more than 60 years and included four Academy Award nominations, work in Radio and TV, multiple Emmy Award wins and a large amount of charity work for which she chose to remain anonymous. She died in 1990.
Stanwyck overcame all the odds to create a fairy tale life as Hollywood Royalty. She was determined, worked hard, arriving first at the studios frequently leaving last. She refused to bow to studio pressure either by signing long-term contracts, which arguably cost her an Oscar win, or accepting work she deemed inferior which led to her becoming one of the most suspended actresses in the ’30s.
So What Would Barbara Stanwyck Do?
For me the answer is work hard, have faith and stay fiercely true to yourself.
