38 - Happy Mugs

I like color. A lot. I also really like World Market. Sadly, the closest we come to a World Market in Philly is 2 1/2 hours. However, there are three stores within 20 minutes of my parents' house in Washington (that I can think of - there may be more). Whenever I'm home, I look to see what treasures I can find (and fit in my suitcase) to take back with me. These were one of my Christmas finds - combining my love of World Market with my great love of color:


These mugs are fabulous. I have no idea how much they actually hold, but it's a lot. We treat them much more like bowls. Cereal, soups, pasta... they've all been in these bright beauties. They sit on our counter are used just about everyday. I love how brilliantly colorful they are, and I will readily admit that there is such a joy in getting to choose which one I want to use (and that that choice can change each time).


I love these mugs, and I highly recommend stocking some in your kitchen. They're great quality, great fun, and a great price. I can't find the exact link on World Market's site, but here are some of the jumbo mugs (the same size we have), and here are some multi-color mugs (smaller, but with the same colors as ours). Hopefully they'll bring a little happiness to your winter day.

I love World Market! Well, I love anything that's on sale there. If you combine World Market with Anthropologie...that's where I'd want to live.

I was very happy to be able to visit when I was in WA... I may or may not have picked up a pair of earrings, a serving dish, and a couple small kitchen gadgets while I was there...
