Mug Monday

Elizabeth at About New York invited me to participate in Mug Monday which is being hosted by Valerie of AcornMoon and Pat of Weaver of Grass.

I have discovered that it is actually quite difficult to properly photograph a mug. Hard to place decoratively. Hard to avoid glare from too much light.

A much loved and much used gift from MamaMia. Quite appropriate.
Good for drinking either coffee or tea.

What an unusual mug. Greetings from Wales, UK (& isn't Mug Monday a fun idea?).

Very pretty, Willow! I didn't know about the mug Monday--would loved to have showed off my favorite tea mug from Whittard's of Chelsea :o) Happy Day ((HUGS))

Ha! Perfect for a knitter! It is hard to get some photos just right...

Melanie said...

Oh my! How perfect for you. A wonderfully well chosen gift and so unusual too. I think my fav mug has to be the big rainbow striped one I got in York from a fair trade shop last year.

Unusual looking mug but cool

Hi, yes it is very difficult to photograph a mug. Yours looks very appropriate for a lady who loves to knit.

What a great mug! And I'd never thought before about the difficulties of composing a mug shot (ha -- sorry), but this picture turned out beautifully :)

Willow:
Don't we all have fave mugs, but this cable knit mug from a loving child to many-talented Mum brought tears of the heart. Afraid my instinct would be to set it aside as treasure, but in waning years learning to enjoy today--so, hope you use it.
Your ph'graphic talents soar--looks perfect to me!
Joy to you and Praise Him.

That's a very cool mug ~ I've seen it while out and about and I'm sure it's only a matter of time before I succumb to it's allure - LOL

Willow said...

I love that mug. I enjoyed your blog and looking at those wonderful beach pics.

It is so hot and humid in WV today.

The perfect mug for you! One of my favorite mugs broke the other day and I can't believe how bummed I was - over a mug! Oh, well. I agree that taking a picture of a mug could be tricky but you managed just fine! Enjoy your day!
