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.)

  11. 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

  12. 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.

  22. 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

  29. 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!"
