~~ Mug MeMe ~~

It's Monday already...Monday afternoon in fact. Where did the weekend go? And for that matter where did the month of June go? I can't believe this year is half gone...maybe, as I'm getting older, it just seems time flies. Is it like that for you? Well anyway, welcome to My Mug MeMe. Sharon at Rose of Sharon tagged me for this fun meme.....so today I'm sharing some of my favorite mugs (click on the pictures for a close up). Starting with Christmas mugs. During the holidays I enjoy using a different mug each day. I love the Santa ones and for some reason the littlest Tom and Jerry mug appeals to me. The pretty Poinsettia mug is a favorite from....Lisa. And

can you see the mug with the Christmas lights on it? Carl found it at a little garage sale years ago...it is so cool. When washing it you have to be so careful, if you scrub too hard the paint will wash off. Thank goodness I didn't put it in the dishwasher the first time I used it. Here are .....
more holiday mugs. For Halloween I do trade off between these three and then for St. Paddy's Day, Easter, and Thanksgiving I like to use the same mug for the whole month. I'd love a 4th of July mug, but I've never seen one for that holiday. Have you?
Love, love, love hearts and here are some of my heart mugs. The Queen of Hearts is another favorite. Now here are my motto mugs......
Carl was with Campbell Soup Company for 38 year and we have lots and lots of their mugs, but these are favorites. The mall is a good place to be, don't ya think? I know I'm loved but I think the mugs on the left from the most important people in my life are neat.
Here are the mugs I use daily. Each morning, when I have my coffee, I tend to choose a different mug. They are mementos from fun trips or from someone special and the little one in the front (I really think it's a cup) with the sweet roses is my current new favorite. I bought it at last months WX Peddlers Faire......and I've been using it everyday...go figure. I never know what will tickle my fancy.

Well, there you go. Please stop by, we'll chat.... I've just made a fresh pot of coffee, what mug would you like to use?

This MeMe was so much fun and now I'm tagging....

Hey Linda, This looks like fun. I made my photos and am going right over to my blog and do the post even though you didn't tag me.ha
I like the one that says "Poppy's Babies" (I think) and the cat one, that looks like my Smokey on there.

Hello dear Linda:-)

Priscilla said...

Hi Linda, Thank you for tagging me with this, I was meaning to post about my cups, now I have more reason too! I really like your collections, especially the halloween, christmas ones. Familiar to hear you swap your morning cup around, I like a change now and then too,
Cups are special, to remember who go you them and when.

I am pleased you like the cross stitch,thank you, its been a joy to stitch, I love it!

I know I commented here last night, I know I did! Strange things happen on the blog...

Your mugs are wonderful....... I only have a couple of mugs so after looking at yours and others I think I will start my own little collection.......

What fun! I LOVE the Halloween mug with the skinny cat! I have lots of Christmas mugs (comes from being a teacher so long) but I don't have any for any other holidays......yet! I usually use one of my Pug mugs or my favorite Royal Albert teacup every morning. At night I use my Statue of Liberty mug that my son brought back from a band trip - that would work for the 4th of July!

Sharon said...

You have wonderful mugs! I am so glad that you played the game! We have a lot of the same mugs! I do have a couple of 4th of July mugs, they are just mugs with flags on them. This will be fun for you to have a quest now to find one! I LOVE the Poppy's Babies mug.......I too now have a quest to find it!!!

Hugs, Sharon
