Collections: Lladros or Coffee Mugs?


My friends, I most often read your posts while sipping my first few cups of morning coffee.  Yesterday, The Baker bought a new car.  I, on the other hand, bought a new coffee mug.  In a few minutes, he'll peek in and ask if I need a refill.  "Yes, please."  Then he'll say "another mug"?  Instead of saying "well, you got a new car", I'll just smile and give my usual reply to that question....


"Remember, I collect mugs?  I could switch to Lladros!!"

P.S.  He said I could use the car anytime I wanted.

P.S.S.  Don't worry "Cerise", I'll still be driving you.  You're the best!

  2. I find your mug to be seasonally appropriate, so hold off on purchasing another until Easter had passed. Have a wonderful day.Blessings...Mary

  8. What a pretty coffee mug. I have a favorite too with tropical fish on it. I've tried in vain to find another one. What is it with mugs that are so irresistible.

  10. Funny how a mug just adds to the coffee experience. I have been thinking recently how I need a new mug. I like yours. I'm sure your hubby appreciates your love of collecting mugs rather than lladros figurines!

  13. LOVE the cute spring mug!!!! I like the bunny, the color, the size, and the nice big handle! I collect mugs, up to a point. Space prevents me from buying all that I want. But now I want to go to Starbucks and look around, they have their prettiest at Easter time. Tell us about the car, what kind, color, etc!!! So you have two cars? We do as well. We also name all our cars, how did you come about your name? Ours are Monty and Lenore

  15. Enjoy your mug! I adore anything with a rabbit on it. I agree, the best time to catch up with friends is over a fresh cup of coffee. Enjoy your day! Bonnie

  19. Love your new mug- It would look great in that new car, I bet. :) I don't officially collect mugs, but I always end up with new ones somehow. It's hard to resist a really cute one, and they're so useful!
