that’s not my sign

Confession #34:  My mug collection is slightly out of control. :burningwitch:

It’s true—I’ve never met a novelty mug I didn’t love.  My penchant tends to be for the nice, big solid ones that aren’t easily breakable (because I also tend to be a bit of a klutz, & when they’re wet & soapy, bad things tend to happen :skullbones: ) & hold a lot of tea.  And cute; they have to be cute or amuse me in some way. :cheers:

During The Move, I actually sorted through all of my mugs & managed to part willingly with several…& not-so-willingly with a few more.  But there are many, many, many I simply cannot part with.

And to make matters worse, last week I found this adorable Snow White mug at a local thrift shop.  (Don’t worry, I scrubbed & Cloroxed it quite well before putting my lips on it. :screamcartoon: )

Come on!  How could I possibly resist? :givemecandy:  It’s a Disney Store original…made of nice, thick ceramic…is quite large & holds a lot of tea…  And did I mention it’s Disney?  (Another small obsession of mine, depending on the character.)

Of course, it happens to be a zodiac mug, & Virgo is so totally not my sign.  But that didn’t keep me from buying it.  Oh, no—I can overlook the incorrect star sign in exchange for simply having a shiny new mug to carry around.  And look at Snow White loving all those little woodland creatures…that is totally me!  The write-up on the back may not be 100% accurate, but it’s close enough…& even sort of encouraging. :bloodyeye:

But I will tell you this—if I ever spot a Scorpio Disney mug, I’ll definitely grab it.  Because I’m dark & mysterious like Jack Skellington, too. :dracula:

    I’m a Mug Addict!! I have them stacked high and low. I don’t really think there can be too many of them!

    P.s…I am a Virgo… just sayin’…

      Where do you put them all? I mean, I make them fit, but total honesty here…some are stored in the attic because there isn’t enough room in the cupboards. :draccoffin:

      Sooo…you’re saying that once the novelty of this mug wears off & I’m ready to part with it, I should send it your way? You know, so an actual Virgo can get some use out of it? :cheers:

        If you are very quiet, you can hear my husband swearing about all the mugs…and how they are delicately balanced in the cupboard! hahahahahaha

    I am also a Virgo, but I don’t have a mug collection. That one looks cool though!

    • Heidi says:

      No mug collection??? What do you drink out of??? :zombiegirl:

      Well, if you want to start one, when I’m ready to pass this mug along, you & Hollie will have to fight over it. :laughingdeath:

    Love these! I have a Tigger mug which I adore, a four mug set of “Redneck” mugs from Jeff Foxworthy and then I have a few huge mugs. The bigger the better. :cheers:

      I have *a lot* of Winnie the Pooh ones—he & his friends are my favorite. And a few frogs. And a few cats. And a few random Disney characters/quotes. But I am too easily lured by anything cute that holds tea. :cheers:

      I’m a fan of the big ones, too, but I did have one once that was just *too* big; I couldn’t hold it unless I used both hands & ended up knocking to over more than once. So there’s a limit, I guess. But still…none of these dainty little china cups for me. I want sturdy! :hellboy:

    another mug addict here too, don’t have one with my sign on it (yet), i am also a Scorpio, LOL. love anything Disney, and today i found a set of four drinking glasses with Disney figures on them, really nice heavy glasses. no idea where i am going to store them but… my favorite mug says “if cats could talk, they would lie to us” :scaryspider: :offtoschool: :happywitch:

    • Heidi says:

      Oh, I love that cat saying! So true. :laughingdeath:

      If you get a chance, post or send me a pic of the Disney glasses. I’m a sucker for that stuff, too, but have to be a little choosier because they’re more breakable. I also won’t let anyone else use them, so then I get a lot of the, “Why are these in the cupboard if no one’s allowed to touch them?” complaints. :frankestein:

      I actually have more than one Scorpio mug…probably several. But there are so many out there, I’m very choosy about them. I like it when they have descriptions on the back or are really pretty scorpion designs.
