My Christmas Coffee Cups

I'd like to share with you my Christmas coffee cups. My sister Sharon got me started collecting a variety of fun cups. We both enjoy a medley of colors and styles, so what's better than finding these for pennies at garage sales and thrift stores? It's fun to wake up in the morning and have my coffee in a different cup each day.
This one is so sweet with Jingle Bells written on the side.
I never allow this one to go through the dishwasher.
I found quite an assortment of Christmas glassware. I like this pretty juice glass.
This one is pretty and has a green interior. There are lots of these vintage Christmas cups at thrift stores, so I loaded up on them on the day after Christmas half price at Goodwill sale. I change out my regular fun variety of coffee cups for my Christmas cups, so that everyone is always drinking out of one for hot cocoa or coffee.
Some of the 1950's vintage cups are a bit prettier than others. I like this one.
My sister Sharon has some of the better quality versions of my vintage set.
I like this style because they stack in my cupboards by two's or three's.

This black one is special to me because it is the first one to start my collection. I just loved it when I saw it and paid a quarter for it at Goodwill.
I love my little Santa cup. I enjoy setting some of my cups around the house with candy canes in them.
One of my favorites is my kitty cup. I did a post more than a year ago about my everyday collection, which you can find here. I hope you all are enjoying this Christmas season.
"You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; Psalm 23:5
my cup overflows."

Kathi, you have a darling collection of Christmas mugs. I have a small collection too and love using a different mug each morning...sometimes there will be a favorite one I'll use for several days. I have an Egg Nog mug too and treat it with care, for some reason I just love your Jingle Bells one. Doesn't everything taste so much better in a favorite cup? hugs, Linda

Cindy said...

wow, what a assortment of mugs you have. A different one for each day of the month leading up to Christmas. :)

I love the Eggnog one, I would love to have the whole set that goes with that mug, do you have the Eggnog set too?

Thanks for sharing.
Christmas hugs,

They are all so cute! I always feel silly and a bit shameful when I pull all of mine out. I feel like I'm frivolous and wasteful with my money, but once they are all in the cabinet and the "regulars" are tucked away, it is so much fun to have a new Christmas mug every morning! I love it! You have a wonderful collection!

Love, Sharon

Hi Kathi sweetie! Your Christmas mug collection is so lovely! Do you know what, both you and Sharon inspired me last year to start collecting Christmas mugs from the thrift store, and all this year I have done that. Now I have a really big collection of mugs and glasses for everyone to enjoy here too. Thank you for being such a wonderful inspiration in more ways than one!

On another note, I wanted to thank you for your family Christmas card. It arrived today sweetie and it's beautiful. You have such a lovely family Kathi. Thank you for thinking of us!

Hugs for you.........
