The Perfect Cup of Coffee

I left most of my kitchen things in Mexico and while I was sad to see them go, I figured it wasn’t anything that couldn’t be replaced. Among the glasses and plates were a pair of coffee mugs bought years ago at the art fair here in west Michigan. They’re well worn and the handle has been reattached to one at least three times, but I love them.

As luck would have it, the same art fair was this weekend and I found a new set. They aren’t exactly the same, but I lurve them all the same.

The sipping view.

Now I just need to fire up the coffee pot.

  1. Fun! I’m glad you got new mugs.

    I love shows like that.

    • Me too. They didn’t have the kind of jewelry I wanted, but it’s nice looking at the photography.

  2. I love hitting art shows all summer. Nice find!

  3. Pottery is my weakness. There is something about glazed stoneware that I totally adore. Our art shows don’t begin until Aug. and Sept. :(

    • Me too. I’d buy everything if I could. This guy had some cool noodle bowls with holes for chopsticks. *swoon*

  4. Those are some pretty coffee cups. Love the colors, as well!

    • Thanks! I wasn’t sure about the color so he gave me 33% off.

  5. I can’t remember the last time I bought coffee mugs. At some point I must have, because there are dozens here (the best thing about having so many is that it saves me from washing up immediately), and I know there are more in boxes if I could be bothered hunting. There must be an explanation…

    Those are, indeed, amazing mugs, but they are the type which demands proper coffee. None of the instant stuff. Go treat yourself to a bag of beans – once you taste the difference, you’ll be wondering what the hell you’ve been drinking for all these years.

    • I try really hard not to have mugs with writing on them. I prefer cool designs instead. Must be the designer/writer in me.

    • Oh, and I drank freshly ground coffee every day in Mexico. I know. :)

  7. Beautiful! They make me want to have a big steaming mug of coffee. Right now!

    • Me too! Sadly I put them away in the storage room.

  8. I have a sister-in-law who buys these kinds of mugs. I would love to go to an art fair and get me some!

  9. Love the mugs!! So cool!!

    Can I come over for tea? :)
