Posts Tagged ‘tea cups’

It’s funny…somehow I got it in my head that this week’s Daily Post topic was Everyday Items. So as I worked on taking photos and composing the post in my head I went off the beaten track a little. Instead of interpreting the topic as an activity, I was simply considering items in the house that are used everyday.

My husband is the cook in our house, and a great one at that. These are his can’t-do-without seasoning keepers; he doesn’t use shakers. I have no idea what the true purpose of these items are, but I don’t think this is it.

It’s funny that as long as an item can be used as we wish, we can become attached to it, though it may not be the nicest or most modern. This mug tree used to be in my grandmother’s house. We could certainly get something more modern or more attractive, but to me this works and I have a small reminder of my grandmother every day as I reach for my teacup.

That being said, I now have to comment on the mismatched mugs. They remind me of different times in my life or the person who gave me the cup. My husband and I have much nicer cups: ones that match our dinner plates and ones that aren’t chipped (I keep thinking I should throw out the mug with the blue flower, but I can’t bring myself to do it yet), but these are the “everyday” mugs and represent real life to me.

This mug is my present favorite and I use it every day (unless it is buried in a sinkful of dishes). Books and cats…for me there is nothing better!
