This weekend, I was talking with some friends about how important it is to have a variety of mugs on hand. Some days you might want the small, diner-style mug; others require the big mug with the Christmas design. My philosophy: the more mug options, the better. I might have to add this Matilda mug to my collection:

I love that mug! And I also completely agree about having a variety of mugs on hand! I actually even wrote my own post about them last winter. You can check it out if you are interested. http://misshaileyjane.wordpress.com/2012/03/14/mug-o-palozza/
Hmm, I only have one mug that I use at work for my green tea. It’s about twice the size of a regular coffee mug (that’s why I like it so well) and it has the evil queen from “Snow White” on it. (In my defense, I won it in a contest, but it has amused people who have seen me drinking from it.)
This post made me smile. I have a vast collection of mugs that I have inherited or the kids have given me for Mother’s Day and birthdays. They are ranked in order of priority depending on which one is clean. I get very grumpy if my husband makes his coffee in one of my mugs and gives me my tea in something inferior! My favourite mug is a Boffle My Mug given to me by my kids. I also have a Laurence Llewelyn Bowen mug from John Lewis that was given to me as a gift that I keep in its box and only bring out when I’m painting abstracts and drinking real coffee. Am I a bit nuts?
This is oddly true… I just moved countries and I feel almost as lost without my mugs as I would without my books. My favorite mug, which is in a box somewhere at my mom’s, has the name of some podunk town near where I went on a disastrous camping trip with my 3 best friends in college… oh, the memories. I want to get a mug with my favorite bookstore’s logo but I felt ridiculous spending more on the mug than on my books!
