Mug Shots

Ingrid Michaelson-Morning Lullabies

I have been thinking for a while that I should do a post about my favorite mugs. You see, I have somewhat of an obsession when it comes to collecting mugs. In the past I have not told many for fear of receiving nothing but mugs for birthdays and holidays. You see when you tell someone you like frogs or chickens, your whole house ends up being decorated with gifts from others who assume that you would like to decorate your whole house with frogs or chickens. But I am finally admitting to myself and to others that I am addicted to collecting mugs.

The lovely Stephanie from femmena mala and I decided to do a collaboration where I share my favorite mugs that I have collected over the years and in turn she is sharing her favorite teas. So stop by her lovely site to check them out! After reading both of our posts I am sure you will not be able to resist the urge to take a moment out of your day to sit down and have a relaxing cup of tea or coffee

Okay, so now for the mugs...

I just recently bought this set and am in love!

Travel mugs: from Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts and Jackson Lake Lodge in Wyoming. I love love love Moose and this mug because it is really solid and sturdy.

The one on the left was a gift from the lovely Victoria and reminds me of henna which I love. She has a matching one as well. The owl has been a guest on the blog before; a wonderful gift from my friend Hilary

These two are so simple and that is why I love them

The one on the left I found at a thrift store with my lovely friend Isa. She bought a matching one and it has become like our friendship mug. The one on the right I found at a boutique and couldn't resist. The only thing is that it does not have a handle so it is best to use for cold drinks.

Well that is it! I have many more and picking out my favorites was so difficult. I hope you all enjoyed my little collection!

I also want to say hello to my new readers and officially welcome you to the site. Feel free to leave comments. I love hearing from you and it is what motivates me to continue with fun little posts like these. I respond to everyone!
