Over the years we’ve amassed a great many mugs from friends and family-holidays, birthdays, anniversaries, trips, and more. In this picture is a sampling of each of those moments, those memories. From left to right—the snowman mug, lots of hot chocolate and coffee during holidays and winter nights. They match the snowman dinnerware that we’ve used for countless Christmas dinners. The ironstone mug from Betty’s Pies is some of the sweetest memories of lake shore trips to Grand Superior Lodge. If you’re up that way, stop in at Betty’s and try the many fabulous homemade pies with a generous mug of fresh coffee! Next is the mug I received this Christmas from my grandsons, ‘nuf said, other than what the cup states, “Blessed!” The brown mug is special as it was made for me by my artist/teacher daughter-in-law. It sits on my office desk, reminding me of how a lump of clay can be molded with patience and tenacity into something exquisitely beautiful! And the ornate china cup and saucer is one of many given to various grandchildren and great-grandchildren when my grandmother passed. Her example of humility, kindness, and resilience peppered with a wicked humor has been my inspiration and model as long as I can remember. In fact, my pen name of McIntyre is derived grandmother’s maiden name.
