Show and Tell Saturdays- Cups


Welcome to our second week of Show and Tell Saturdays. My dear friend Lisa from Stop and Smell the Chocolates has picked this weeks theme. It's Show and Tell your favorite tea cup or coffee cup or whatever your favorite cup is. Come tell us about this special cup you have. You may not even drink out of it it's so special. Post about it and come back here and link up with Mr. Linky down below.


I couldn't choose just one cup because out of these 4 cups each one's use is "special".
I'll start with my coffee cup.
This cup holds no real sentimental value. To be honest the only reason I use it is because it's bigger than most cups! LOL! Hey I'm just being honest. Here's a picture of it. I guess I could have taken a picture of the fish on the mug. Oh well! Moving on to cup #2.

This next one is the newest addition to my "cup" collection. Not that I purposely collect cups but I seem to have an over abundance of them. I love tea and just recently started drinking loose tea. So for Christmas my wonderful husband got me this beautiful tea cup with the fitting lid on top. This one is special because my hubby picked it out himself. Isn't it pretty?

This next one is one that I use when I'm using regular tea bags. But first let me give you some history on me really quick. Back in High School, I LOVED Garfield. I read the comics every Sunday. I had Garfield school folders,pencils, figurines, posters, book covers, you name it I had it. So when I found this in a local thrift store, I about fell over. It was perfect.
I love what the back says.
Last but not least on those cold wintery days, (you know the 2 that we have each year here in Florida,) I have my hot cocoa mug. This baby is big and holds a lot of hot cocoa. Enough room so you can float your share of mini marshmallows on top without worry of spillage. Plus it has a great snowman on it and I LOVE snowmen as well. Don't you love it? Also another thrift store find! Don't you just love the thrift store?
So there you have it. All of my (well okay not all) but most of my very "special" cups.
Why not join us today. Go post and come back. We'll wait.
BIG Hugs!

  8. Ya know, I've never been a real girly girl, but I like your loose tea cup best.

    I would've joined in last week, but I can't get to my grandmother's china cabinet right now. (Working on that). And I got rid of all my 'excess' dishes and such when I thought we were going to move and have only just started buying a few plain white Corelle pieces here and there. 8-}

    Have a JESUS-filled day! ^i^
