Favorite Mug

Erica and Christy are hosting the HOTNESS on Thursdays Blogfest and while I have a busy day and wasn't sure I would have the time to participate my morning was freed up I think I'll have time to get to see many of your entries today and what I don't get to today I will come to see tomorrow!! So without further ado! My favorite mug which I actually do not drink out of because I do not want to ruin it with dishwashings, etc. 
It's an Ann Taintor mug. Ann Taintor, if you are unfamiliar, uses actual pictures from the 50s and puts hilarious  quotes next to them. If your wondering why this particular one caught my eye, you can read more about my history here, otherwise, take my word for it, it was what life was like for me at one time.

Another favorite:
And I do drink a lot of hot tea out of this one... so there you have it. 
My favorite mugs!  


  1. Great Mug!

    I love '50's vintage. Such fun.

    Like you, Danette, I don't drink our of my favorite mug either.


  2. Do people actually smile while doing dishes? How strange. :O)

  3. LOL! Yes I can see why you wouldn't want your 50's print mug spoiled. Maybe she's smiling through gritted teeth. Your tea mug looks very sparkly too :O)

  4. Great vintage mug!! I'm in love!! Definitely a fan!!!

    I love that you shared two! I love seeing all the fun entires!

    PS I adore your header! The picture is breathtaking!

  5. The first mug is so evocative as there may still be women living like that. Hmmm...

    And I read your About me on the right and realised why you chose the second one.

    Lovely mugs.

  6. Oh, I love that mug! And yes, that's my life.

  7. vintage, retro... what i wouldn't give to go back to the 50s and steal a mug and bring it forward in time...
    I just got mugged, great sharing story...

  8. I love Ann Taintor. I've got a bunch of party napkins with different ones on them that I pull out when the girls all get together.

  9. HA! Omg! I love that Ann Taintor mug!! I have never heard of her but I think I love her!

  10. Ooo...I love them both, but especially the reto mug. Thanks for sharing!

  11. Super mugs! THANKS SO MUCH FOR PARTICIPATING! I'm glad you found the time! :0)

  12. So glad you found the time to post a mug, because you Ann Taintor one is fabulous! Although - I hate to think you identify with the sentiment... Love the new blog design, btw. The pic up top is gorgeous!

  13. Both are very cool! (Or hot, I guess, since you drink hot things out of them.

  14. ROTFL! I absolutely love it!! I need a framed pic of that over my desk. Says it all.

    Thanks for sharing it! And nice to meet you! :)

  15. The quote on your Ann Taintor mug made me giggle!

  16. Great mugs! The Fifties was my era; I was a teenager. I also like the Sixties and Seventies, especially the music and literature from those decades.

    Hope you're having a good day! We finally got a big snowstorm in Virginia. Could do without it!

  17. I love those 50's housewife cartoons. I have a whole bunch at home on the fridge!

  18. Oh I do love those '50s style mugs! There's a fab card shop which stocks loads of cards in this style and I'm always stopping in for a giggle.

    Happy weekend! ;)

  19. Great mug! I hadn't heard of Ann Taintor but will definitely check out the products! Thanks for sharing.

  20. Thanks so much to all of you for visiting! I enjoyed seeing all of your mugs (at least those of you who were participating)! I didn't have time to answer your comments as I did have a crazy day yesterday and I know you were also busy with the blogfest but I thought I'd let you know how much I appreciated you stopping by!
