So. Show and Tell for today is your favourite mug or cup.
I'm in my element here.
I drink tea all day long, and I am very fussy about what I drink it out of. I dislike, intensely, chunky china or pottery mugs.
I suffered the horrible mugs in the kitchen at work for a few weeks before deciding I would bring my own. I searched high and low, then found the perfect cup. Bone china, with pink roses.
My work mug. Brought home every now and then for a run through the dishwasher and photographic assignments.
My second favourite. A proper cup and saucer. Royal Doulton. It was bought by my mum, for my nana, when she was dying in hospital, as she detested the thick hospital china. She died when I was 6 weeks old, and Mum gave her cup to me a couple of years ago when she heard that I had the same predilection for thin, translucent crockery. I love it.
Next in line. Op shop cup and saucer purchased a few months ago. Looks pretty but doesn't hold enough. Also the tea goes cold too quickly. Pretty though.
And finally, Mr Soup's favourite mug. Decorated by Son #3 for Fathers' Day last year. Featuring an angel, flying past the sun.
