Kate’s latest Listography is all about mugs. On a day where I look more zombie than usual with my cold, streaming eyes and general blood shot-ness this perked me up a bit. After all, I’ve had a mug glued to my hand in one way or another all weekend.

So here’s my fave mugs!

1. The morning cuppa
Plan Jane, does the job in a hurry mug. These are the ones stacked on our mug tree.


2. The “Homer” mug
I bought this for my hubby. He loves The Simpsons and it was part of an Easter egg set. The slogan on the side says “I completely agree with whatever you’ve just said”. I’m sure he would use that with me if he wasn’t going going to get the glare of death back!


3. The not very practical mug
This is one of the first mugs we bought together on a shopping trip to Ikea. I’m not sure what possessed us. You can hardly get even a finger through that handle!


4. The “fancy” mug
One my Royal Doulton bits that come out when we have “guests”. Which err, isn’t that often!


5. My “girlie” hot chocolate mug.
My friend gave me this as a Xmas present. The guys usually try to avoid this one If ever I use it.


Check out the other entries on Kate Takes 5. Go on. Who knew there could be so many mugs out there. I need more!

    We have plain purple mugs for the “in a hurry” thing. But its not like having your own proper mug.

    I absolutely love your Royal Doulton mug but it’s far too lovely a set to be hidden away – you should get it out more often 🙂

    I have a mug from the dollar store that says something along the lines of inheriting insanity from your kids. I completely agree. and a cat mug that my hubby bought me due to my love of cats. other than that we only have plain ones, which I use most often.

    I remember that batch of mugs from Ikea – they were very cheap and loads of people bought them as they look nice (and they were cheap) but you can’t pick up your hot drink. Shame on them. I actually like your two white ones – the lack of colour letrs you focus on the pleasing shape.

    We have those Ikea mugs in our church – you’re right about that tiny handle! Having said that, they are infinitely better than the typical Baptist “one mouthful” cups we had before!

    My fave would definitely be the hot choc mug! Anything with hot chocolate in is good!

    Hmm that’s 3 traingular mugs in there – not my cup of tea – excuse the pun…

    You’ve redesigned your blog! When the hell did that happen?

    Love your selection, and what is it with those Ikea mugs?
