My husband and I absolutely have our favorites. Isn't it funny how your favorite will get ugly and chippy with time... but it's still your favorite? :)

Kathleen Grace said...

Very cute. My current favorite mug is large and footed and pink and it says "Sweet" on the side:>)

Sandy said...

Oh gosh, I have so many mugs! My favorite right now is my Tinkerbelle mug from Walt Disney World. It's large so it holds lots of coffee and has Tinkerbelle on the side. What a witty post - enjoyed it.

Nothing like a nice, heavy mug! Our everyday mugs were on sale @ Walmart for 49 cents each. We have 5 of them because they were the LAST 5!!! But when I'm in a reflective mood I'll pull out the old brown and white one that I remember my paternal grandfather drinking his coffee from, and it takes me waaaaaayyyyy back in time! He passed away in 1972!

i do...love your pics, very creatively done!
...love my mug recently purchased when I went to Dillard House in the n. Ga. mtns...a remembrance of a wonderful meal and good time with friends. It is locally thrown and molded...burgundy and green...holds 16 hot ounces of joe!! ...and ears large enough to slide all four of my finger through to wrap around the base, wonderfully warm :)

What a cool post! Yes, I have a favorite coffee mug and I don't like it when anyone else uses it!

So cute! My favorite mug is a big Starbucks Philadelphia mug...good for tea & hot chocolate.

Donna said...

I do have a favorite mug for hot chocolate (I am not a coffee drinker)it says Merry Christmas Mom and I have had it for years. Love it too!

cindy said...

I, like you, favor these old cafe mugs, the shape, the heaviness in the hand, just add a white chocolate mocha and I'm in heaven! :D

Oh dear..here goes the Libra in me!
I have to make a decision every single morning which mug I use..so..no I guess not. I think all of them are favorites really.
I tried using a SET of mugs...didn't last long. Hung them on a mug tree and they have been there since I bought them.
Patrick and I used to have our favorites we used every morning but now I just pick randomly.
I loved your mugs. They look like they would keep coffee hot a long time. None of mine do. :)
Hugs to you sweet friend.

What a fun group of photos ~ especially the shot of the ears!

I have six favorite mugs. All the same style. just different colors. I love the handles ~ the opening is big. All four of my fingers will fit through it! Love them!

Mugs are like security blankets, only one special one will do.

I recently bought a very pretty floral Cath Kidston mug, which could well become my favourite. Not just because it looks so pretty, but also because its BIG!!!

Your pictures are fabulous as usual. I love these old cafe type mugs - they are my favorites, along with old military mess hall mugs.

Doesn't everyone have a favorite mug? Mine is a Mickey and Minnie Mouse mug my hubby and I won for "Best Costumes" at a fifties theme party. We dressed up as Steak and Shake car hops complete with skates. That was more than twenty years ago. A lot of memories in a mug.

A favorite mug is like your favorite comfy shoes. Yours are so cute. Mimi

Pondside said...

Great shots.
Of course I have a favorite mug. It has just the right handle, a perfect lip and is thickk enough to hold the heat in my drink without being too chunky.

The 'splorin' Wolfies said...

mug shot---hehehehe!!!!!

Susan said...

Those are nice mugs. I have a favorite mug tha is similar to the shape of your mugs. Mine has a bunnie on it,its great for morning coffee.

Elsie said...

O.K. Becky the only thing missing
from those wonderful mug shots is
the numbers..LOL..I have a fiesta
yellow mug that is one of my favorites. My hot chocolate mug is
a chicken mug that my niece gave
me back in the 80's.:O)

Lallee said...

LOL You tickle me, Becky.....left, right, up, down ;-)

I can be very picky when it comes to mugs, drinking out of them anyway. They have to fit just right in my hand, and the porcelain should be shiny smooth. I can have a whole cabinet of mugs, but use maybe three favorites over and over.
XO,
Lallee

Janean said...

....all the better to hear your sigh of contentment when sipping coffee or tea from one of these cuties!

Snappy Di said...

I DO have a favorite mug but I like yours better. Like the old cafe/restaurant mugs and they seemed to keep your coffee warm a log longer.
