Listography at Kate Takes 5 this week is mugs... of the drinking variety.
In my strive for the perfect contents for the perfect kitchen we had fitted when we lived in our previous house, I went out and got a collection of mugs, that all sort of matched.
We got rid of a load of random mugs but some have stayed the distance:
1. My Mr Bump mug captures a family memory. As children we each had a place mat and matching flannel (I have no idea!) which was ours. Whilst my brothers had Mr Strong and Mr Tickle, I had Mr Bump, I am not sure of the link with my mum calling me 'Calamity Jane' throughout my childhood.
2. My Little Miss Lucky mug is something I bought when I had my first job, it came in very useful at my second job where the coffee machine gave 1/2 cup measures- this cup gave the impression my cup was always full.
3. My mum gave me this cup, probably in 1999, the year I moved to England, as a piece of my heritage When giving it to me she stressed how expensive it was. To this day, she is the only person to have used it, I guess my reluctance goes back to Mr Bump.
4. This was the set of mugs I bought on the way to meet the removal company when we moved here- having heard that you need to ply the team with tea and coffee. Now it is this set of mugs which the hubby uses to make me a coffee in the mornings.
5. And my favourite:
