Coffee Cup Collection

I’m not a collector.   Well, I don’t think of myself as a collector.  Guess I have a few more chickens than some.  And there’s that nutcracker collection that comes out in December.  (Christmas things just don’t count.)  I don’t have thimbles or Coca Cola memorabilia or teddy bears.   But I do have a wonderful assortment of coffee cups.

I use them all, and when I reach for one to kick off the morning – or to relax in the afternoon – I don’t just go for the closest one.  I take the one that fits the mood.  Am I thinking of a special friend?  A good vacation?  A fond memory of days gone by?  All of these mugs hold special little stories all their own, and you know how I love a little story.

I’ll enjoy sharing them with you from time to time.   Even if we can’t sit together on my glider, we can still share a cup of coffee!

    Oh yes… I’m very anxious to write about my Ruidoso House mugs.. the new and the old!

    I do the same thing! Most of my mugs aren’t “from” places but they each exude a certain mood. Often it is more about the size, shape and color. Guess I’m just a little weirder than you!:)

    Most of my coffee mugs have been gifts and when I open the cupboard I see lots of friends and family.
    I have one my sister gave me that reads.
    “In my Father’s House are many mansions, I hope yours is next to mine”. She is now in her mansion. I have had it for years and now it means so much more to me.
    Thanks, Sandy for the stirring this memory.

    Marcea, I know you’re going to love having coffee from that special cup for years to come… and always with wonderful memories of your sister, and the happy expectation of the reunion in that mansion!

    I love coffee!! But my very most favorite cups are the ones your dad gave my mom years ago for Christmas. Looks like the blue, pottery one in the middle shelf on your picture. My mom’s are great – big at the bottom, but then the lip or top part is smaller – keeps your coffee (or hot chocolate) warmer for much longer! Bryan and I have searched and searched for something similar with no luck.

    The pottery one in the photo came from Taos… a gift from my mom. The handle is a chile. Love good pottery. Maybe you guys just need to take a little vacation to northern New Mexico on a coffee cup hunt!
