My Favourite Coffee Mug

Yesterday I put up a photo of Vince's coffee mug. This photo is of one of my favourites. For some years now I have had a set of six of these mugs, plus sugar bowl and creamer. Vince bought them for me as a birthday gift and I've always loved them. Although they are ceramic, they have quite a fine rim. I love the shape of the mug too. I mostly bring them out when we have visitors. I've really enjoyed seeing everyone's coffee mugs. I hope I'll see a few more before something else takes our fancy.

I don't think you'd call it stoneware. The mugs are made from clay on a potter's wheel then fired in a kiln.

I like the shape of this mug too. There seems to be a whole coffee mug art form

It's a pretty shape I think. I always seem to look for, and end up with, this sort of shape.

The colour is very natural looking. Vince bought them from a pottery near Perth.

Do jelly jars take the heat? I have a heap of jam (jelly) jars to give away. I take them to the op shop occasionally but they only want the ones with metal lids. No plastic lids.

@JudyEv yes ma'am, they take the heat. i'd made some cozies fer 'em (to keep the contents warm whilst not burnin' my fingers, lol) 'n the young'uns seem to've run off with 'em all. there aint no place 'round these parts (closest 'tis 250 miles one way) that'll take glass anythin'.

@crazyhorseladycx Once you've been able to recycled something once, it makes it harder next time just to throw them out.

Do you think so? He told someone this morning we were decluttering and next to go was the wife! He is hard to keep in his place sometimes - he doesn't like staying in the toilet.

My favourite mug had a scene from the Bayeux Tapestry on the front and it reminded me of a lovely holiday we had in Normandy a few years ago. I was really sad when the mug got broken.

We went to see the Bayeux Tapestry when we were in France last year. It was so interesting.

Very cute mug. It looks like it can hold a lot of coffee.

It is pretty much a standard size. It's not huge.

It really is one of my favourites. I love bringing them out when we have someone over for coffee.

That mug makes one want to sit down immediately with some of the brew.

I really like the shape of the mug. Very cool where they came from and your husband picked great ones. I have a lot of mugs and to many of them are ones I love using, so not sure about my favorite.

Don't mind the shape or colour too much, just so long as it holds gallons!

I have yet to take part in this challenge. I have so many favorite coffee mugs, that I need a week's worth to share! Perhaps, I'll do just that!

I'm never lucky with my favorite mugs. I broke two of them. One in every year. I hope this one I have today will last longer. lol...
