My favourite mug. Hilda on one side and Stan on the other. I also have one that’s Ena Sharples and Albert Tatlock. I love the bright colours, the thin, quality china and the nod to my Mancunian roots

Ooh that's lovely - is it Emma Bridgewater? It has that vibe.

Hi here is my favourite mug that I take with me to my Embroiderers Guild meetings. It was bought for me by a dear friend who knows how much I like crafting

My favourite mug to drink tea from 😊

I don’t think that worked, I’ll try again

My favourite mug is actually about 10 years old and has been used every day. My husband has a black one of the same design and we bought them at Wakehurst Place National Trust shop when visiting one day.

I bought this mug after I climbed Sydney Harbour Bridge five years ago. Special memories

Patsy429 Tue 10-Mar-20 11:53:32

Patsy429 Tue 10-Mar-20 11:54:10

I'm making a pig's ear of this but at least it's got me posting!

My breakfast coffee cup , I've had it and used it every morning for well over 10 years now, It was a Christmas present with chocolates and a small felt toy cat inside.

My favourite, a Cairn terrier mug I bought from a tourist shop in Dornoch, couldn’t resist! Used every day.

Good day to all and a big hello from Canada! 🇨🇦 This is my very first post, so I guess I’m no longer considered a lurker?!? 😂 I always enjoy my tea in my favourite mug.

Morgie52 Tue 10-Mar-20 12:33:24

My favourite bought by my grandchildren

grannyactivist Tue 10-Mar-20 12:37:06

The Wonderful Man bought me this mug for those times when I'm ill and need to drink a lot. I always joke that it's so huge it's like a swimming pool! grin

Grandmamaoftwo Tue 10-Mar-20 12:37:51

Rude...but I like it

My favourite Emma Bridgewater mug I won from Copella years ago

BeenBizzy Tue 10-Mar-20 13:52:15

My favourite mug is still packed since we moved.....

It has a cartoon drawing of a woman with a fab figure. ............. Wording as follows.

You know when it's a bad day..........

You put your bra on backwards....... And it fits perfectly. 😁😁😁😉

My two favourite mugs. My son married a lovely Danish girl. They have a little boy so now we are Farmor and Farfar.

LynW Tue 10-Mar-20 14:03:56

Not sure where the photo is, ha, ha.

harrison53 Tue 10-Mar-20 14:05:33

My GD is into unicorns, so this has been my favourite mug since my usual kingfisher one was broken.

Nortsat46 Tue 10-Mar-20 14:05:36

This is my favourite, it’s Emma Bridgewater. My partner bought it for me, to replace my previous favourite, which he managed to break ...

my favourite mug holds 750mls of tea. It is white with a red strip that says "GROSSENWAHN" my daughter and son in law brought me from a Christmas market in Germany a few years ago. I always say it means "big one", but aparently the dictionary says it means "megalomania" or delusions of grandeur.
