Ugly Mug

It’s a typical Sunday scene: our first order of business on any morning that doesn’t involve a day job is coffee, followed shortly thereafter by my spreading out work to be done in the dining room, and Jack retreating to the office.

Last week, Erin’s post got me contemplating mugs. We tend to favor all-white-everything – we tossed our mismatched mugs when we combined households – but a few designs have caught my eye on Pinterest lately as intriguing, if not a match to our aesthetic.

What are your mug requirements? I prefer a sturdy handle and a flat (not flared) lip, all the better if it happens to coordinate with the other contents of our cabinets.

    I love #5. I tend to get sentimental about mugs. For me it’s less aesthetic and more emotion. My favorite mugs are the set that were my memere’s (great-grandmother) given to me by my meme. They’re antique corning in this really rich gold with white inside. But mostly I love them for the memories.
