So here it is, I would like to see your favourite Coffee Mug. But wait there's more, I'd also like to see your favourite glasses for a) non alcoholic drinks and b) alcoholic drinks. If you want extra credit you could also post your favourite plate. Note I said favourite, not best.
Alas, my favorite coffee cup of all-time is broken. The cup featured artwork of Sandra Boynton. There were cute little mice all over the cup with a cheerful saying "Never Too Many Friends." I do have a substitute coffee cup that is pictured here. This cup is not only pleasing because of the friendly pun inside the rim and the endearing hedgehogs featured in the picture, but the cup keeps my coffee at hot for a long period of time. More massive cups tend to rob the heat from the coffee.
My favorite glass for non-alcoholic drinks is not a glass at all; it is a plastic or if you prefer a plastic drinking glass. In the Daddy D/MJD household, we tend to break things. When we found these glass-looking plastic glasses, a need was filled. We have eight durable drinking glasses that go with our dark blue Fiestaware plates and our bright blue kitchen.
Although I do not drink alcoholic beverages, I do have a favorite wine glass. Daddy D and I won a pair of these tulip-shaped wine glasses in a Romantic Weekend basket at fundraiser for our school corporation. Here is one of our wine glasses with a little nip of fine Australian wine for Daddy D. Finally, the last part of the assignment, is to feature our favorite but not necessarily our best plate. My plate is one that belonged to my mother. She in turn inherited from some relative, or actually I think that she talked a relative out of the plate. Thus, the plate is an antique. I think that this plate is beautiful with the "Flow Blue"delicate blue brambleberries. I like the plate because of the beauty of the design and lovely flowing blue and because my mother left this beauty to me.
