the perfect one....

thought i would have some fun today....
i am totally a mug/cupaholic...
i use to have only one shelf in my cupboard which was the designated home for all my cups/mugs....
now i have two full shelves and i am finding myself out of room again....
i just brought another one home from Seattle...
i can't throw or give any away....i have tried.... but i love them all dearly....
i am very picky when it comes to shape...rim and handle size....feel of it in my hand...weight...etc.
the mugs/cups that make it into my cupboard have to be perfect for me...and me alone......the rest of the family has to put up with my preferences...though my husband has a hockey mug which i allow to join in but i have been soooo tempted..... many a times....to accidentally break it....shhhhh...it just does not fit in with the rest of them...so i usually hide his ugly mug at the back.....
we use mugs/cups to hold a lot of different foods...not just for tea (which is all i drink) or coffee...we eat our cereal out of the big latte ones... desserts...soup...basically anything that could use a bowl....soooo....
i have a few of my favs here...
it was very hard to pick which ones to show you... because i love them all...basically these were some of the clean ones when i decided to do this....but....i do have my all time favorite one mixed in...the one i always pick first..she is the perfect one for a good cup of tea.....i love her so very much...(i know i am getting silly now)
anyways....take a guess?????
which one is she?????
let me know what you think.....
i will post her image in a few days.....
do you have a perfect mug/cup that you can not live without?

My choice is d... I think it suits you the best!!!

I am going to go with choice C. I love the stripes... you could dress them up or dress them down, and it looks like a sensible handle, and a big enough cup to hold a decent amount of tea. Although some of the others may be "prettier," this looks like a mug you could become friends with... and I know how you love blue ☺
Yes, I have a couple mugs that I always go for, but lately, I have been looking for pretty, but funcional mugs. I picked up some clear mugs from London Drugs. They are pretty (and pretty basic, too... just clear!) but big enough to hold at least a chapter's worth of tea for when I want to snuggle in with a good book and my tea!

So... please do tell us what mug is your favourite!

I would guess that a or e are your favorites, mine would be c. I love cornish blue stirpes and have several - though nowhere near enough - pieces myself.
