Collections: Thoughts and Things Celebrate, Create, Contemplate. Repeat.

In A To-Go Cup Please

Another inadvertent collection. It appears that “Sally the squirrel” has been collecting coffee cups versus nuts this fall.  I keep finding cups that matched collections, and found it hard to resist as most averaged .25¢.

I like to keep a few mugs on hand to use as when preparing a small gift. Ideal as containers for a coffee gift card, or filled with candy, colored pencils or stacked tea-lights. Or just to give for a laugh.

I won’t say we’re klutzes, well actually yes we are, so a spare cup or two for future rotation is also prudent.

The newest addition is a glorious blue and made in Italy.  Italian Cafe cup

A peek into the past with this reproduction mug.

White Star 3rd Class Mug Reproduction

I have a HUGE Titanic fan at home (all things historical, and the movie). The size and weight of this mug is ever-so pleasing.

White Star Third Class Mug. Jack!

This college mug (fine, stein) was bought for less than primarily $1 because I felt sorry for it. (Must stop doing that, but it is a piece of someones history.) 1958. No chips or cracks.  (Truth be told, probably would not have rescued a PAC-12 rival mug . . . )

The sassy gallery:

We use festive cups around our house to corral pens, toothbrushes and ponytail holders.
