The Katie Alice Purple Mug

I'm NOT competitive with "That Other Lady"...really, I'm not!

That Other Lady has been showing off coffee mugs on her blog (she has tons of them!) and apparently felt sorry for me because she could see there was NO WAY I could compete with her show any mugs that were even close to being as beautiful as the ones she's been showing . 

With the lack of competition mugs she was NOT seeing on my blog, she went searching high-and-low for a purple mug JUST FOR ME (and she doesn't really even like purple all that much.) She found the perfect one to help me compete start collecting mugs, too.

Oh, my, goodness! Is it not the most beautiful purple polka dot mug!
My creepy bunny thinks it is!

It's a Katie Alice porcelain mug from Creative Tops in England...I love it!

Do you have a beautiful/favorite mug? Maybe you should show it off, too.
Let me know if you post a pic and we can show That Other Lady...uh...I forgot...
I'm Not competitive. Or am I?

Thank you, Madame Samm, 
for this amazingly beautiful mug for my tea.
(Nope, no coffee will touch this mug, but don't tell her because 
you KNOW how much she loves her coffee.)

What a pretty mug, and an Alice in Wonderland looking bunny.

That's a very pretty mug! I love it, and I think I would drink out of a nice mug like that everyday! It's much too nice for that creepy rabbit, though... ;)

Karen said...

Wow! You are right -- beautiful mug...creepy bunny.

I adore your mug, but that bunny is kind of scary!

Oh yeah.... I remember this bunny from a previous post... I find him cute in a creepy way. The mug gives him a little more class and respectability! :)

beaquilter said...

uhhhh that's a creepy bunny! I have just a few funky non matching mugs left, we got new dishes a few months ago and just have it all fit we had to toss/goodwill a lot of old mugs

It's a gorgeous mug! But I'm guessing you'll never have as many mugs as that other lady does....she's the master collector. :) But take heart, she doesn't have that darling bunny! blessings, marlene

love your mug - very pretty; the bunny - well except for the "hands", I actually like him! We had really heavy rains in NH yesterday, nothing like what you had, but apparently in other parts of New England they were heavier and there were strong winds that brought a lot of trees down.

Thearica said...

I love that mug! Purple and polka dots.. they just look so scrumptious together! and a lacy edge to boot!

I for one love your crazy bunny. :)

Judy B said...

Love your gifted mug! I also think your bunny is darn cute.

Tammy said...

What a lovely gift from your best enabler to should i say competitor...lol....Gotta love Madame Samm.

Quilter Kathy said...

A very pretty mug.
But that rabbit...it's really creepy and gives me a bad vibe! I wonder if I put something like him in my garden if he would scare away the neighbourhood rabbits?!

Jane's Fabrics and Quilts said...

Mary said...

krislovesfabric said...

Oh, Carol...beauty of a dainty mug but your rabbit is going to give me nightmares, lol!

Michele said...

Love it!

Janarama said...

The mug is beautiful ... the rabbit is pretty scary looking.

Scrapatches said...

That is a lovely mug for tea. I do not really collect mugs although I do enjoy using them. My personal favorite is the one with yellow flowers that was featured in my mug rug blog hop picture. I shall have to repost it. No competition here ... ;) Pat

The rabbit is not cute he is awesome, but I love your purple mug. I maybe should show some of my beautiful mugs too. What a great idea, when my sewing is not for showing yet. You know that Christmas blog hop.

Amy said...

I love the purple lace around the lip edge of the mug. So dainty! As for the rabbit, I kind if like him. Not creepy just misunderstood! Hehe! I don't think purple is quite his color.

Quilt n Queen said...

OMG Carol....the bunny is definitely creepy but the 'tea' mug is beautiful, luv the purple dots. Enjoy your tea...tea tastes so much better in a beautiful china mug. Happy stitching!!

tink's mom said...

It is a beautiful mug, use it in great health. Enjoy your tea.

Alicia said...

PURPLE! I've never seen a purple mug! How fun! (purple is my color too) Happy Retirement!

That is a very nice mug but that is the UGLIEST rabbit I have ever seen! How nice of you to give him a loving home. I figure he has a great personality. And now YOU can decide if you like comments on an older post! I'll take your thank you in advance and just say, "You're welcome!"
