Favored Mugs

I have a cabinet full of coffee mugs and seem to only use about three of them. These are MY mugs...DH doesn't use them, I don't offer them to company...Do you have a favorite mug/s? What's on it?


I started a thread like this last year and thought it was kind of neat to see who uses what!


I'm still using the same ones as last year

Today is my Starbucks Greece mug

Others in rotation are my Minnie Sketch and one DH got for me in Iraq.

I have a few that I always use, and like you, DH does not use them. They are:

My LL Bean mug, it's really thick and sturdy

My Bad A** coffee mug we bought in Hawaii. It is a brand of coffee and has a picture of a donkey. My DD calles it my Bad Bum cup!

My US Constitution mug. It's really big and holds a lot of coffee.

I don't drink coffee, but I have favored mugs that only I use. I have 2 Figment ones, an elephant one that I have had since I was little, and a Winnie the Pooh one. Hubby has an A& P one (he worked for A&P/Superfresh for 35 years), a Westpoint one, and one with a picture of our first granddaughter on it.

I have three favourite mugs, 1 Tim Hortons ones and 2 from the Disney store, they are all nice, big and study and most importantly hold alot of coffee I do have a few backup Disneys mugs that are the kids that I will use if mine are dirty or in use (yes I allow the rest of my family to use my mugs, but I would rather they didn't ) I actually only have about 8 mugs total in the house, when I moved a few years ago I got rid of all the cheap ones that we never used since it was just a waste of cupboard space.

I need to get rid of about a dozen mugs. DH and I use the same ones every day. I'm cleaning out that shelf today!

I actually collect coffee mugs so have a LOT of "favorites."

My favorite favorites are from Alewine Pottery, in Gatlinburg, Tennessee. We have 6 of those (with the autumn leaf pattern) and I just love them and those are the ones we use most often.

I just bought 7 new mugs on our vacation. I cycle through my favorites, use some for awhile, then put them away and get others out. I have a couple Disney ones that I enjoy using, and cruise line ones too, some from favorite restaurants, etc. Every time I use one it reminds me of the place it came from.

Yes, I have favorites. I don't drink coffee, but drink tea.
There are 3 of is living in the house and we each have a shelf for our mugs. DH has the fewest and I use part of his shelf since I have so many.

The ones I use most are my glass DVC, a WSU DD gave me, Jiminey Capricorn, and Sees.

I have a few that people have picked up for me.

I use Greece because it's the place I wish to visit the most and I forgot to add this to my list, but I use my Tampa one often because it reminds me of home.

Definitely!

I have a few from various trips that I love (Pooh, Tigger, etc.) and also one that was a fundraiser for my local library, that is just the perfect size.

I bought a NY one when we went to NYC but I forgot it in the hotel.
I am from NY so that would of been my hometown one. I like the ones my hubby got in Kuwait.
I think we also have Tampa, Orlando, some Tx town, San Antonio. I am going to have to check
My friend is stationed in Germany and has a germany one she posted I was like I love that one.

I have mostly Disney mugs and three of those are my favorites - a POR mug that is really big, a Mickey mug with a raised design and a red Mickey mug with Mickey writing inside. My only favorite mug that is not Disney is my mug from the Culinary Institute of America because that is my DD's school.
