It seems to me like every household has one...a cabinet FULL of coffee mugs. Yep, this is a post about coffee mugs. Over the years, the collection seems to become a mis-matched one. No longer the perfect set you received as wedding gifts, rather it becomes a montage of memories.
Take for example my parents' cabinet. Out of the 20 or so mugs they have, I believe 4 or 6 are from the set of everyday china they received as wedding gifts 33 YEARS AGO!
A few of the others have included (may or may not be in the rotation anymore):
A few Christmas themed mugs in which the scene changed with the addition of hot liquid
A few handmade pottery ones
A couple Southern Living at Home pottery ones
In our cabinet you'll find the original 12 - 1 that we received 4 years ago. I'm sure that one found it's way to the garage and probably was last seen holding furniture stain or some type of car engine liquid. You'll also find a few mugs from places we have visited. That's become our thing we pick up. Some people buy magnets or pottery. We buy mugs.
Recently, I made two more additions to the collection. They came from TJ Maxx.
I've gotta tell you...I enjoy a cup or two of coffee in the morning and these have quickly become my go-to mugs. They just make me happy.
Am I the only one who has a favorite mug? I'd love to hear about your's or even better, show us a picture! If you want to post a picture, just leave a link to your post in your comment.
