My Favourite Cup

Elizabeth of 'About New York', had the very good idea of posting a picture of her favourite mug and asking others about theirs. Here is mine-I have others that I really like but this is the one I use the most. I love Penguin book covers and I thank the marketing genius who decided to put them on mugs. I love 'Jane Eyre'. The combination of these things with a traditional mug shape and china that is not too thin, not too thick, makes it the perfect mug for me. My work one is quite different though-that was just a chance find. Andy gave me this one. Lucky me!
Go and have a look at Elizabeth's blog if you don't already know it-it's great.
Can I see your favourite mug? If you have one of course!

Oh, I do love those Penquin book cover mugs! Imagine a row of them sitting on a kitchen shelf? Pretty and inspiring, don't you think?

Sarah said...

I do. Sadly I only have one!

Elizabeth said...

Yes, classic Penguin cover
and Jane Eyre.
I think the mystery ones were green weren't they?
An obvious winner all round.
I used to think my dream job would be choosing the covers for Penguin books... wandering round art galleries and looking at stuff!

Sarah said...

Yes I think they were mysteries. That would be a great job I agree!
