None of my mugs match and, well, I guess I like it that way. I notice that I choose certain mugs for coffee in the morning based on my mood (or my desired mood) and I love having that variety built into my life.
Since we are celebrating our little Mug Collection today (check it out right here) I thought I’d share my favorite thrifted mix ‘n match mugs these days …
A heart mug for the guy who has my heart.
Two little birds. This one makes me smile every time!
This is the tiniest little transferware mug. Perfect for strong coffee!
So sad about this one breaking but I still use it. Can’t even remember where I found it but it’s an absolute fave.
I tend to use this on rainy days. These drops are so cheerful.

I know I’ve shown you my mug shelf before—like MAV’s mugs, all are different and all were found or gifted to me.
When I look for mugs for my own home, I am attracted to neutral, earthy colors with shots of blue. I always flip them over to see how their underside adds to their story. Some markings add value, some just add mystery.
There are those in my family who have a favored mug that they reach for every time.
I like to spread the love, making sure all the mugs see a little use.
Not to mention, I am a serial mug-abandoner—leaving them behind high on shelves, sills, and back steps, temporarily lost and necessitating a fresh mug. Luckily, there are plenty from which to choose.

Today, we’d like to invite you to replenish your own mug shelf with our Mug Collection in our shop. We had a great time finding these gems. I had a really hard time parting with quite a few of them!!
