My Favorite Coffee Mugs......

My "E" mug. From my friend Debby. I could never find things with my name on it as a kid. Still can not! I mean- I know EVE is not that common. But come on, it is EVE!! So I love the fact that it has a E on it! My favorite part is the shape of it, and the fact that it is pink inside!
This is my holly berry mug from my friend Lisa. It is a Starbucks mug so it is weighted a little more heavy which I LOVE. I think it is a Christmas mug- but I think the simple design of it is beautiful. The raised flowers and berries are my favorite.
This is my newest mug. It is from my friend Monica. She hand painted it for me. I love the color combination of blues and purple. I also like the circular pattern. She put lots of detail into this piece and it shows! The hand painted handle, rim, and even the bottom of the inside of the cup. All with a precise hand! My favorite part of this mug is the 3-D paint on the handle in small white dots!

Since we have been on summer vacation- I have been able to enjoy my morning cup of coffee a little bit more! I admit I pick my cup in the morning based on my mood! These last few weeks I have been having two cups a day! My norm is about 1/2 cup!
Do you have a favorite mug for your coffee or tea?

Cute idea! I have three fave mugs. One of them is the same Starbucks "holly mug" from Lisa also. And I have another mug from an old friend that has a "special friend" poem on it. I have one with a picture of a kitty on it that looks just like a cat I had (Mr. Kitty). He is in kitty heaven, but he was my favorite pet (long story...). I too pick my mug for my morning coffee based on my mood that day (and, if I ran the dishwasher or not).As most of the mugs I have are gifts, everytime I use one it reminds of the special person that gave it to me. I also love all the holiday mugs I have and get excited to bring those out at Christmas time. Thanks for sharing...

I don't have a favortie mug, I am not a coffee or tea drinker :). I will sometimes start my day off with a nice cold diet coke-it is a habit I am trying to break. I hear ya on the not being able to find your name anything. I have not found anything with Raimi on it.

Why do I blog?

I have never been one to keep a journal. I have never been able to write in a diary for more than a week! I have countless scrapbooks that still need to be journaled. I do this in hopes of becoming a better journalist. I do this to document everyday life. I do this so I don't have to scrapbook EVERY picture! I do this for me, our friends and family, & mostly the kids. One day they will have it all - because I took the time to document all the little things that REALLY do matter. Everyday life....all the little moments you & I can't remember because the memories are long gone.......
