Warning : Mug Porn

Joining in with Kate’s self confessed weird listography this week, cure here are my top five favourite mugs. Yes, you read correctly people, mugs.

Though I do have to admit, as a proper Tea Jenny, I do have a bit of a mug fetish, and more than happy to proudly display my wares on this one.

1. A Christmas present from my Mum and Dad. Two like this and two with red snowflakes on a cream background. I’ve blogged about these mugs before such is my love for them. A proper English breakfast tea at any time of the day goes down a treat in one of these.

2. A Jamie Oliver ‘cosy’ mug. These were on our wedding list and thus have special memories. It held on tightly to the number one spot for a whole 7 years and 8 months before being pipped by the red and cream hearts one. Pukka cuppa indeed.

 

3. This delight came as a gift from my best friend (my bate) with another three sweetly adorned mugs in the same design. Four of us girlies have a matching set and it confuses the bejesus out of me when I travel hundreds of miles to London to visit them, only to have coffee in the same mugs as we have at home.

 

4. Spotty Lilac. Also comes in spotty green, spotty blue and alas no more, spotty pink. Very girlie and perfect for hungover cups of coffee after a (very rare) night out.

 

5. Finally, a mug that we got made up for Super Daddy with his very own company logo on it when he became business man extraordinaire. It came filled with chocolate lime boiled sweets to top it off.

 

Fabulous listography this week, so many mugs that never made the cut…

  1. Lol I’m exactly the same. I love a nice mug. The funkier the better. I have one that I will only drink out of first thing in the morning (Starbucks cream mug with red inner) and then mugs that only I can use, not guests!
    I’m so pleased I’m not alone :0)

  2. Super Mummy says:

    Hee Charolotte, would appear there are lots of us with a penchant for a nice mug! And yes, I’m with you on mugs that only I can drink out of (number one on my list!) Equally, I would never drink out of Super Daddy’s Chocolate Lime mug and would never give this to guests. It’s his and his alone!

  3. Goddam it – you beat me to it! I’m waiting for G to go to bed so he doesn’t see my oddity on this one – hee hee.

  4. We have the Jamie Oliver ones also, in fact wifey rarely drinks out of anything else.
    A nice varied collection you have there

  5. Love them! I particularly love your Christmas mug. I bought two Christmas mugs a few years ago that were meant as a gift for someone, but I couldn’t bare to part with them and they are still in a drawer because I didn’t want to use them just in case! I think next year they will be taken out and used by me! They would liven up my collection which is a bit white/cream at the moment!

  6. I do like a nice mug, particularly ones that relate to a specific time of year. The snowflake one is lovely. I’m a red and white Christmas themed person so would definitely chose this one for myself.

  7. Super Mummy says:

    Ha Caroline! Dishwasher still not finished?! Will your Christmas mug with the wee birdies be on your list? X

  8. Super Mummy says:

    The Jamie Oliver ones rock! Pleased to say that in all the time we’ve had them we still have a full collection.

    Your wife knows a good mug!

  9. Super Mummy says:

    You can’t beat a good Christmas mug! I like your white Denby one lots though. Nice and clean! Get the Christmas ones out, you won’t regret it!

  10. Super Mummy says:

    I don’t know if you can see the red and cream hearts biscuit barrel in the back ground too? I’m a bit of a freak for anything red and cream! Tea tastes fab from them too. X

  11. Coffee, milk, no sugar in the spotty lilac please.

  12. Lovely mugs – thank you for sharing them šŸ™‚

  13. Super Mummy says:

    Of course, coming right up. Would you like a slice of carrot cake with that?

    Enjoy!

  14. Super Mummy says:

    Thanks Lou. Off for my morning breakfast tea in the love heart one.

  15. I think the last mug should come with an ever replenishing supply of chocolate limes. Mmmmmmm.

  16. Oooh I do love a nice Christmas mug! Great choice šŸ™‚

  17. I love that you had that Jamie Oliver one for 7 years and 8 months as your top cup. That’s true staying power!

  18. Fiona Mackintosh says:

    We have mug rules in our house too! Dh always gets the darker coloured mug if i’m making us tea from 2 plain coloured ones. He also has some that are only ‘his’ like his Daddy Cool mug or ‘Handy Man’ one and I would never drink out of them! I have a ‘Super Mummy’ mug that I love – must find one for you JA! I have 3 smaller bone china ones that are lovely to drink from but rarely in the morning because they’re too small for the huge gallons of tea I require. My new favourite is my ‘Fabulous at 40’ one!

  19. Super Mummy says:

    Ooh yes Kirsty, an endless supply of choc limes would make a change to a choccie biscuit!

  20. Super Mummy says:

    Mostly… I have mug envy when seeing photos of your mugs previously!

  21. Super Mummy says:

    Kate, staying power indeed. It held the top spot for so long for sentimental reasons!

  22. Super Mummy says:

    Ooh Fiona, a girl after my own heart! Love the approach to your mugs!! Fabulous at 40 indeed! Please do dig out the super mummy mug and come back with a photo!! X

  23. Sarah Mac - People Don't Eat Enough Fudge says:

    Spotty one or hearts one ….. spotty or herts ….. Can’t decide, I’ll take both šŸ˜‰ Great collection!

  24. Super Mummy says:

    Thanks Sarah, agree, difficult to choose between some. Have to say I’ve loved looking at all the other mugs on the listography. It’s been my favourite one this far!

  25. Love the first one, really gorgeous!

  26. Super Mummy says:

    Thanks Mama Syder! Good old M&S!
