Willowtree is the hostess with the mostest this week and wants to peek into our cupboards with this challenge:
'Again this is one of those stickybeak posts. You could also get a bit creative photographically speaking if you wanted to. So here it is, I would like to see your favourite Coffee Mug. But wait there's more, I'd also like to see your favourite glasses for a) non alcoholic drinks and b) alcoholic drinks. If you want extra credit you could also post your favourite plate. Note I said favourite, not best'.
This mug was given to me by Sam about 24 years ago and I have used it daily since. Sam must have chosen it due to the tennis theme and unfortunately the colour has faded a lot over the years. It is made from bone china so is very delicate and (so many believe) tea tastes better out of bone china, in fact my granny will only drink out of bone china. I brought this mug to Hull where it spend my student days nursing many a hangover.
Many of you may have heard me refer to my house lovingly as me shoebox. It is really too small for my family, only one bathroom and five people. If you looked in my cupboards stuffed to the hilt you wouldn't be able to find anything. In fact no one in this house can find stuff except me! Therefore I have very few glasses and no special ones. When I need glasses I buy whatever is on offer and recycle them as they break or get chipped. We drink anything from these glasses from water, juice, milk, smoothies, vodka, whiskey and beer. Tucked away on top of my cupboards I do have a box of very nice wine glasses that I won in a tennis competition but we tend to use the wine glasses to hand in the cupboard.
I had been after a hand painted plate from the children for some time. Joules finally got the hint when they made one for his mother and my mother and I demanded one! I wanted a square plate as I didn't have any square plates and sometimes make square cakes that look good served on a square plate. I love this and will treasure it forever.
