coffee mugs

One can never have too many mugs!

I love coffee mugs. Since I just bought a brand spanking new coffee machine, I feel justified in buying some brand new coffee mugs to go with it! Here are some I like.

Emma Bridgewater’s pottery is delightful. Her mugs are cheery, fun and very British. I love polka dots and that is what first attracted my attention to her work. Her mugs have colorful sponged patterns, some with words or illustrations.

My absolute favorite mug is made by Damariscotta Pottery in Damariscotta, Maine. They are colorful, beautiful and each one is unique. They are hand made and hand painted in a tiny shop right off Main Street. It is not possible to order them on line, but if you call Rhonda, the owner, she will send you photos of what she has in stock. They are an investment, but trust me when I tell you that all your friends will be asking you where you found such a gorgeous mug! $55.00 and up.
