Mug Monday

Well following on from Plate Friday we now have Mug Monday, hosted by Acorn Moon and Weaver of Grass. Here are three of my favourites. The one on the right comes from the same second hand crockery set as the plate I posted in the earlier post. The rabbit mug was a gift I bought for Crafty Green Boyfriend, and typically, one of the few mugs bought new and one of the few to be cracked (we don't drink from it any more)! The middle mug was a gift from my parents many years ago.

I love the unity of colour in your choice of mugs. That rabbit one is SO cute. The cat is gorgeous and the blue mug, stylish. This is going to be as fun day!

The rabbit one reminds me of a mug we have somewhere (I fear it may be in the loft after our last move) of a pottery creature (now, was it a frog?) nestling in the bottom of the mug, so that as you drink up, it almost 'jumps' out of the water.

Oh a lot of mummy & daddy's mugs have ducks on! I loved your header and the previous post about the ducklings! We saw some yesterday!

The design that I admired as a plate looks equally good as a mug doesn't it?

You have a nice small collection of mugs going on. I really like the middle one and the blue one w/ leaf. Hope all is well. Have a great day.

A hard choice but the blue one with the simple leaf design is my favorite!

Bright and cheerful. I'd have to have my tea in the one with the kitty. Many thanks.

I love the blue one... I am partial to blue. And the others are cute as well!
Unfortunately, all my mugs are packed away!

I like all three mugs! I'd have to use one for morning coffee, one for afternoon tea and the third for evening hot cocoa.

I love the cat mug (of course). It reminds me of my big fluffball, RED.

Hi, thanks for your visit to my blog. I hadn't posted my mug when you came over but I have got around to doing it now. I love your middle mug. So pretty. I would definitely use that one mostly for my coffee.

I love your colorful mugs. I also enjoyed the poem "Home"

Mugs ... everybody can relate!

Probably one of the first things man learned to make was a drinking vessel ... our pioneers carved them from burls on trees and of course made them from gourds!

I like the blue one.

My favorite mug has about 6 months of coffee stains in it .. Bunny Lady had better not wash it ... it has such good flavor!

Oh this looks such fun. I love the idea of a mug monday. I can't go into a store without looking at the mugs. I'm hooked on them. Love the blue one best, so elegant.
