31 DAYS OF COFFEE MUGS: Disney Store Frozen Coffee Mugs

Some are calling Disney’s Frozen movie the biggest Disney animated movie ever. It has reached this phenomenal level of success around the world in a number of ways.

Firstly, it is an award winning movie, receiving many honours that culminated in the Academy Awards for Best Animated Film and for Best Original Song for "Let It Go."

Secondly, the soundtrack has sold more than a million copies and spent five weeks on the top of the Billboard 200 album chart.  That's a record that has not been set by an animated movie since the Lion King in 1994.

Finally, it is a social media success story with the Let It Go video being viewed more than 121 million times on Youtube and going on to spawn many interpretations of the song.

It is obvious that we loved the movie Frozen and I know you do not need to the statistics to know that it is a movie that will become a Disney classic.

As we await the next movie, which I have seen simply called Frozen 2, we have to content ourselves with re-watching the movie a task that many of you have already done again and again.

We can also sip our coffee, tea and hot chocolate from one of these lovely Frozen-themed coffee mugs.  Therefore, I present these Frozen coffee mugs as the 30th entry in my 31 DAYS OF COFFEE MUGS. Find the whole series by clicking right here.

As always when choosing a Disney mug, I find that the best examples come directly from the Disney Store or one of the Disney parks.

There are two official Disney sets that I love. They were sold individually though of course you can purchase two to create a set.

The first is the Disney Store set with Anna and Olaf, the snowman as shown at the top of this post. Drinking a steaming hot mug of hot chocolate in this mug would definitely help you thaw out. It's a generously sized mug with glitter accents and holds 16 ounces or 2 cups of your favourite hot beverage.  It can be found on Amazon by clicking right here.  The mate is the lighter pink coloured cup also shown at the top of this page and can be found on Amazon here.

The second set, also from the Disney Store, shows Anna and Elsa and their very popular dresses.  Do you remember the furore over the limited edition Disney Store dresses?  Anyway, the blue mug features Elsa; the pink one, Anna. They are both tall Disney Store mugs and will hold 16 ounces of your favorite beverage. You will find them both on Amazon here.

If none of these mugs is quite the one you want to add to your collection, you might find this selection of Frozen-themed coffee mugs from eBay helpful:




Are you anxiously awaiting the next Frozen movie?

31 DAYS OF COFFEE MUGS: Mr. Right and Mrs. Always Right

Here's a mug for a couple who has fun pretending to be or perhaps actually being Mr. Right and Mrs. Always Right.

Do you know anyone who fits those titles?

I can think of a pair that I know particularly well for though my husband may be Mr. Right, I am, of course, Mrs. Always Right.

I'm pretty sure this sentiment fits right in with the Happy Wife, Happy Life quote that my husband loves.

In any case, they're a handsome pair of coffee mugs recreating the popular look of a coffee shop chalk board. You can try to find them on Amazon by clicking right here. Unfortunately, they are in limited availability right now so I've turned to eBay where I found the following Giftcraft Chalk Talk mugs available right now:




I also found these moustache and lip themed coffee mugs from Lorrie Veasey that share the sentiment.  I love the fact that this set is reminiscent of the moustache month, Movember. You can find them on Amazon by clicking right here
.










Either set would be great gift ideas for the RIGHT couple, pun intended.  They'd be perfect choices at Valentine's Day, for a wedding shower or even an anniversary gift idea.


Finally, in case neither of these sets is quite what you are looking for or is unavailable all together, I share a selection of Mr. and Mrs. Right themed coffee mugs from eBay. The selection here will change every day, depending upon what is available on eBay.

31 DAYS OF COFFEE MUGS: Marsala Coffee Mugs

According to the colour experts at the Pantone Color Institute, the colour of the year for 2015 is marsala.

Marsala is a reddish-brown colour that Pantone calls “a smooth, rich, earthy wine tone” inspired by the a city called Marsala in Sicily, Italy.

I think that adding accents of marsala would be a great way to add a bit of this fashionable, warm colour to your home d├ęcor without adding too much of a strong colour.


Here's a peek at the sample from Pantone. Marsala is colour number 18-1438.

Panatone says, "Nurturing and fulfilling, Marsala is a natural fit for the kitchen and dining room – making it ideal for tabletop, small appliances and linens throughout the home."  I like it though I realize it is not for everyone.  It is exactly the hit of red that I might choose to add if I were redecorating my family room or kitchen.



Today's post, number 27 in my 31 DAYS OF COFFEE MUGS, is therefore dedicated to a few lovely marsala-coloured coffee mugs. Because I do not actually own all of these mugs, I am relying on the colour representation delivered to me online. I hope that these colours are true in real life. Please let me know if you experience anything otherwise.

At the top of this page, I've shared a pair of Starbucks' Stacking coffee mugs. Starbucks calls the colour mulberry but I think that it is a fine stand in as a marsala-coloured mug. It is a 2013 mug that is readily available from Amazon by clicking right here.

Pfaltzgraff's Everyday Calico Mug, with a checkered pattern at the top, is of varied colours, including a reddish brown marsala. Priced at just $5.99 on Amazon, it would be a very affordable way to add a bit of this year's colour to your home decor. You can find it by clicking right here.

Then there is Burton & Burton's inspirational Marsala Dad themed mug. It's a handsome choice, perfect for Father's Day and dad's birthday. You can find it on Amazon here.

Mikasa also offers a basic coffee mug in a colour that they call berry. Priced at just $2.99, I'm not sure what quality this mug delivers but I suppose you could buy one and check it out. If you wanted to add a whole lot of marsala to your kitchen in a verty inexpenssive mug, this could be the one for you. Find it here on Amazon.

31 DAYS OF COFFEE MUGS: John Wayne Mugs

I’ll start by saying I am only a bit familiar with the works of the late actor John Wayne. I’ve never been a huge western movie fan but I will admit that the few I have seen, I have enjoyed and they include the original John Wayne version of True Grit.

I am, however, totally enthralled by pop culture and the continued popularity of John Wayne so for the 26th entry in my 31 DAYS OF COFFEE MUGS series, I have chosen John Wayne.

There is actually a coffee mug or rather a series of mugs that were produced specifically for John Wayne that are worth thousands of dollars each.

The story behind them is that John Wayne had them made and then gifted them directly to family, friends, cast and crew members. One side of the mug carried the name and an image from the movie. The other side, carried a greeting.

On December 6, 2014, one of these John Wayne mugs sold at a live auction on eBay for $11,000. One side of that mug had an image of Rio Bravo, a 1959 movie, and the other side read, “Joyce, From Duke.”  Here's a screen shot of the auction listing:


The eBay seller who sold it says it was being sold on consignment directly from the estate of the daughter of Joyce Burnett, who was the assistant to Rio Bravo director Howard Hawks.

I gather it must be a rare example because it fetched an unprecedented amount when it sold and this despite the fact that it had a lot of wear on the handle.

Most of these personalized John Wayne mugs sold on eBay in the last year sold in the $2,000 to $5,000 range.

If owning one of those mugs is out of your range, but you would like to have a John Wayne mug, I have found a few nice options.

My favourites include this brown Vandor mug, which reads, “A man’s got to have a creed, a code to live by.” It’s a simple handsome, manly mug, perfectly suited to the subject matter.  You can find it on Amazon by clicking right here.



I also like this mug by Midsouth Products, which reads, “Don’t say it’s a fine morning or I’ll shoot ya.” I like it because it carries a morning sentiment perfectly reminiscent of the Duke and it makes me smile. You can find this mug on Amazon by clicking right here.

31 DAYS OF COFFEE MUGS: Sheep Coffee Mugs

Sheep collectors rejoice. I found a selection of woolly coffee mugs for you.

They're made by Dublin Gifts of Ireland and they feature a selection of your sheep friends.

Your choices include the mug shown here, which is covered with a rainbow of sheep with lots of sheep-themed references.

Or the attractive green mugs shown below with two versions of these Irish Wooley Jumpers theme in two shapes so you can pick the shape that you prefer.




Finally, the black and white sheep mug shown below...for the black sheep in the family, of course.

Not only would these mugs suit a sheep collector but, since they are marked Ireland and made by Dublin Gifts, they'd also make a wonderful souvenir of time spent in Ireland.  They would also make a great choice for a St. Patrick's Day cup since some of they hail from Ireland and some of them even have a green clover on them.

You can find them all on Amazon by clicking here. If you or someone you know love sheep, it is noteworthy that there's a host of matching merchandise that includes salt and pepper shakers, oven mitts, towels and more. You could really assemble a nice sheep-themed gift set with some of these pieces.

I am hard picked to choose a favourite. The black sheep mug makes me smile because of the reference to the black sheep of the family but I love the colours of the other pieces. Which one do you like the best? Is there a sheep themed coffee mug in your future?

31 DAYS OF COFFEE MUGS: Sandra Boynton Coffee Mugs

You might know Sandra Boynton and not even be aware that you know her.  I first encountered her many years ago when my children were preschoolers through a 1993 children’s board book called Barnyard Dance.

Sandra Boynton is an award-winning children's author and illustrator who has created a world of funny animal characters that we know and love. They appear not only in her numerous children's books but also on greeting cards, coffee mugs, bedding and so much more.

Naturally, Sandra Boynton's coffee mugs feature her iconic characters in funny moments. From Christmas to Valentine's Day to mugs that share frustrations with the work place, there is a Sandra Boynton mug for you.

This, the 24th post In my 31 DAYS OF COFFEE MUGS series, is dedicated to the mugs of Sandra Boynton.

If you are a competitive sort, you’ll appreciate the I Play To Win mug.

If you drag yourself to work on Mondays, you will enjoy the sentiment on, the Fact: There Are Three Times As Many Mondays As Fridays mug.

Whether you do or do not embrace all the craziness of the Christmas season, you might enjoy the Bah Humbug mug.

Recycled Paper Products has been producing these mugs on Sandra Boynton’s behalf for quite awhile, which means that some of the designs are harder to find than others. However, a quick look at the eBay sales statistics shows that the most expensive Sandra Boynton mug sold in the last year sold for just under $40, which means they should not be priced out of reach of the average consumer.  The mugs that fetched the highest selling prices included the Juan in a Million, Wee Fish Ewe A Mare E-Grets Moose and the Rudolph No Business Like Snow Business mugs.

Here are but a few of the Sandra Boynton coffee mugs available right now on eBay:

31 DAYS OF COFFEE MUGS: Vintage Federal Glass Company Zodiac Mugs

The twelve signs of the zodiac are represented in these vintage Federal Glass Company mugs. Some Federal Glass pieces, like these ones, are easily identified by the marking of an F in the middle of a shield on the bottom.

I spent some time today looking for more information about the company and these cups but did not turn up much in the way of concrete facts.  Here is what I learned with the facts being compiled from a number of unofficial sources.
The Federal Glass Company was created in the early 1900s by George and Robert J. Beatty. Apparently, it originally created tumblers but soon expanded into jars and bottles and by the 1950s was making tableware from coloured pressed glass.

These zodiac-themed mugs were manufactured in the 1960s and possibly 1970s and they were made in the U.S.A.

I read that the company closed its doors in 1980 but saw this contradicted elsewhere.


Regardless, of the details, they are handsome zodiacal cups, done in black and gold, with one side presenting an image of a zodiacal sign and the other side presenting information about that specific sign.

Collectors of zodiacal mugs collect mugs that represent their specific sign. Others want a complete set representing all twelve signs of the zodiac. Whichever kind of collector you are, you will find them all available on eBay though not necessarily at the same time.  Here are a few Federal Glass zodiac mugs from my eBay store:

31 DAYS OF COFFEE MUGS: St. Patrick's Day Coffee Mugs

Eat, Drink & Be Irish mug Grasslands
It occurred to me recently that it might be fun to have a St. Patrick's Day themed coffee mug so I went searching.  I found a few really nice examples and so these mugs, devoted to the Irish, leprechauns and St. Patrick's Day, became the subject of the 22nd post in my 31 DAYS OF COFFEE MUGS series.

EAT, DRINK & BE IRISH MUG

The first example I came across was this Eat, Drink & Be Irish mug by Grasslands, which is handsome in its own right but when you throw in the little leprechaun playing peekaboo you make it extra fun.

I'll issue a warning though. I have written about peek-a-aboo mugs before and had them become unavailable very quickly. If this is a mug you would like to add to your collection, don't delay. I was able to find it here on eBay and here on Amazon.

Irish Coffee Recipe Mug
IRISH COFFEE MUG

Then I found this fun Irish coffee mug, also by Grasslands. Did you know that Irish coffee has all four food groups? Alcohol. Caffeine. Sugar. Fat. How can you beat that? I love the cute little leprechaun perched on the handle and the Irish coffee recipe that is printed on the back. You can find this mug on Amazon by clicking right here.

BELLEEK PERSONALIZED MUG

Finally, I thought I would add the lovely, personalized Belleek mug shown below.  It is a handsome piece, crafted from fine china and hand decorated in Ireland.

The fact that it can be personalized to read, Mom, Dad, Grandma, Grandpa, Brenda, Chris, Herself or Himself or literally anything you wish makes it an extra personal gift idea. It is a bit more expensive than the rest of the mugs on this page but it is a quality piece of Belleek china that the recipient will treasure forever. You can find it on Amazon right here.

31 DAYS OF COFFEE MUGS: Starbucks You Melt My Heart Mug

Just like there are collectors of Disney coffee mugs, there are collectors of Starbucks mugs and this 2015 You Melt My Heart certainly makes me want to start building my own collection of Starbucks mugs.

It's attractive with a simple white and red presentation and text that reads, "You Melt My Heart."

That text makes it perfect as a Valentine's Day gift or as a gift for the one you love at any time of the year.

I love the bonus rubber lid that looks like white chocolate oozing down the sides...it is a simple detail that adds so much to this mug.

31 DAYS OF COFFEE MUGS: I Heart Hugs Snoopy Mug

For whatever reason, Charles M. Shulz's Peanuts characters have enduring appeal.  We continue to love all of them and to embrace merchandise, like coffee mugs, that feature the Charlie Brown, Snoopy and Woodstock.

I HEART HUGS SNOOPY MUG


Therefore, for the 20th coffee mug in my 31 DAYS OF COFFEE MUGS series, I am featuring this absolutely adorable I Heart Hugs coffee mug with the ever popular Snoopy embracing his friend Woodstock.  You can find it on Amazon by clicking here, where it is priced at a very reasonable $12.98.

I HEART HUGS SNOOPY HAT

I also discovered that this mug is part of a series and you will also find the I Heart Hugs motif on a baseball-style hat, as shown here. You will find it on Amazon by clicking right here.

Unfortunately, this heart and mug are currently not available on Amazon or eBay so instead, I have found these options on eBay:
  


JIM SHORE PEANUTS FIGURINES

Finally, I discovered a similar series of Snoopy figurines by Jim Shore.  Jim Shore is a talented artist who has recreated many famous characters in his own unique style. I love the figure with Snoopy hugging Woodstock and the one with him carrying a pretty pink balloon and the one with him sitting before an Easter basket...yes, I love them all. My search turned up 29 Jim Shore Peanuts figurines though not all of them feature Snoopy. You can see them all on Amazon by clicking here.


Combined any of these pieces would make a beautiful gift idea for Valentine's Day or for whenever you want a Peanuts-themed gift.

31 DAYS OF COFFEE MUGS: Konitz Snuggle Hearts Mug

Konitz Snuggle Mugs are unique, and they make fantastic gifts. Pair them with a gift of coffee or tea, and you'll have a gift for any occasion.

I love the idea of a mug that I can really hold onto and these mugs are perfectly designed for you to wrap your hands around. They will bring a smile to your face on those mornings when you need a smile.

Since I am writing this post as Valentine's Day approaches, I have chosen to feature the little hearts mug.  It is perfect for Valentine's Day as well as for all year long. Who wouldn't LOVE to wrap their hands around this heart-themed mug? Pun intended!

Konitz has other themes in this snuggle line, including but not limited to coffee-, tea- and choco-expert themed mugs and nature-themed mugs that feature beautiful poppies and sunflowers.  You can check them all out on Amazon by clicking right here.

31 DAYS OF COFFEE MUGS: Gray Grey or Beige - Greige Mugs

According to Consumer Reports, a trend in the kitchen is toward more grays and beiges and even a combination that some are calling greige. I went looking for a definition of greige and found one on a blog called Inspiration that defined greige as a combination of white, black and red or yellow plus perhaps some blue.

Consumer Reports says that beige and gray an therefore greige, are popular colours because they stand well on their own and because they also blend well with other colours. Yes, of course, there are some handsome mugs that suit the topic and these are the best of the choices that I found.



I have long admired the Starbucks Rococo mug in orange but only just discovered it comes in a number of colours including greige, which Starbucks calls charcoal gray, and is shown on the left.

Then there is this fabulous I Love You a Bushel and a Peck with a Hug around the Neck coffee mug, which is attractive and also brings fond memories for those who remember one of the versions of the song. Wikipedia says there have been 11 versions recorded including the 1950 version by Doris Day and a Sharon, Lois and Bram's version.

Here's a lovely handmade pottery gray mug by Soulful Ceramics. It has been carefully hand crafted and painted, making it an especially beautiful gift idea when you want something that is a little extra special. Note that the crafter says that because of the handmade nature of this mug and the carefully painted details, it is best hand washed.

Finally, is this set of four porcelain Rosana Rue du Bac mugs with varying geometric shapes that include polka dots and stripes.


With this set, you will always know which coffee mug is yours. It is both dishwasher and microwave friendly and comes packaged in an attractive gift box.

Do you suppose the 50 SHADES OF GREY book trilogy and the new movie for the series has anything to do with this greige trend? I suppose it could...The Telegraph says it is the best-selling book of all time, having sold more than 5.3 million copies, which makes it pretty popular indeed.

Will there be a greige or grey or gray or beige or whatever you call it, mug in your life?

31 DAYS OF COFFEE MUGS: How to Use a Coffee Mug Properly


Just when you though you had seen it all here's a fabulous tongue-in-cheek vintage How To video from YouTube It's called Proper Mug Utilization for the Home and Workplace and demonstrates clearly how to use your coffee mug properly. You will want to watch carefully so that you learn and are able to remember the mnemonic device for proper mug utilization.

I offer this video and the included lesson as the 17th post in my 31 DAYS OF COFFEE MUGS series and I know that it will give you a chuckle. So without further ado, here's the video:



The video is by the Unemployed Philospher's Guild, who have created some fantastic mugs like the handsome moustaches mug, the disappearing Cheshire Cat Alice in Wonderland mug and the smart mathematical formula mug shown on this page.  They are also the folks who created the Movie quotes mug as seen on yesterday's post here. To see all of the Unemployed Philospher's Guild mugs on Amazon, click here.

As the folks from the Philosopher Guild say,

"Enjoy your mug. If you cannot enjoy your mug, what business have you owning one? 

Employ the mnemonic device and you will enjoy mugs for years to come."

31 DAYS OF COFFEE MUGS: Classic Movie Mug

With the announcement yesterday of the 2015 Academy Award nominations, I thought an Academy Award or Oscar themed coffee mug would be a good choice for day 16 in my series, the 31 DAYS OF COFFEE MUGS. Alas, I came up empty handed.

I searched then for a movie themed mug and came up with this classic movie quotes mug by The Unemployed Philosophers Guild, which I think is an appropriate choice for all of us who are caught up in the world of the movies, especially during Oscar season.

The mug contains more than 24 quotes.  I'll not name them all because that would ruin the fun but a few of the quotes that meant something to me are:

Toto, I've got a feeling we're not in Kansas anymore.
Hasta la vista, baby.
You're gonna need a bigger boat.
Fasten your seatbelts. It's going to be a bumpy ride.
You talkin' to me?

Can you name the movies that these quotes are from? If you love movies, I am going to bet that you can and that's just a bit of the fun your gift recipient will have when he opens this mug and tries to identify the movies that all of the quotes are from.  Conveniently, the answers can all be found on the bottom of the mug though you will want to be careful checking them when your mug is full. (More about how to use your mug tomorrow.)

This is an absolutely perfect mug for those who love trivia and who are obsessed with the movies. Does that sound like anyone you know?

31 DAYS OF COFFEE MUGS: Heat Activated Shark Mug

In 2013 my husband discovered the video game Hungry Shark.  He played it when he was looking for a few minutes of down time but he soon became mildly addicted.  Of course, if he did not play, his iPad would notify him that his shark was hungry.

Maybe he wasn't actually addicted but he did take a teasing and that teasing led to him receiving this shark mug as a gift.

It's a heat-activated mug. I am sure you have seen some version of a mug that has an image that changes when you add a hot beverage.

In the case of this shark mug, you'll discover that the waters at the beach are not as pleasant as they first appear...

It's a novelty mug, a bit of fun in this case for someone who loves Hungry Shark but also a nice gift idea for someone who likes sharks...or maybe for someone who does NOT like sharks!  It would be a nice item to have on hand for Shark Week, too.

Be aware that the one draw back is that this mug, like other heat changing mugs, must be hand washed. I presume that washing it in the dishwasher would ruin the changing image.  Also, be aware that the image change is not as intense as you might expect. It is a gradual change and the colours are fairly low key perhaps because the sharks are meant to be underwater.

I notice that my husband uses his mug frequently despite the fact that we have to hand wash it.  That's definitely a sign that he likes it and that it is a comfortable mug for him to hold.  I am sure that someone in your family who likes sharks would enjoy it, too.

31 DAYS OF COFFEE MUGS: Disney's Mickey Mouse Coffee Mug Warmer

In the past, I have seen a Garfield mug warmer but it was not until today that I discovered Disney's Mickey Mouse mug warmer set as shown here.

As one whose tea is too frequently cold in her mug, I have to say that I think that this mug is simply too cool for words.

I love the coordinated, matching set of mug and warmer and the fact that it features a handsome black mug with Mickey Mouse on the outside and a bright red interior that reads, "Mickey Mouse." There's something cheerful about that red interior.


As I write this, the set is on sale. Amazon has it marked at just $9.99. I cannot imagine it ever costing less and can actually see it going up in price once it is not in production since it is a practical and handsome  Mickey Mouse themed item.

According to the Amazon customer reviews, I am not the only one who loves it. I see comments like, "It keeps my coffee hot" and "I love it."   It's not perfect with perhaps the biggest complaint being that the red on the base shows wear somewhat quickly.  Given the fact that the warmer keeps hot beverages hot, that would be a disadvantage that I would be willing to live with. You can read all of the reviews for yourself on Amazon by clicking right here.

I think it is a nice set for any Mickey Mouse fan. What do you think?

31 DAYS OF COFFEE MUGS: Super Hero Dad Mugs

Super Hero Fans Will Love These Batman and Superman Coffee Mugs For Dad 


The year 2012 was a big year for super hero movies with three blockbusters released.  They included the Avengers, Batman Rises and the Amazing Spider-Man, all of which were hotly anticipated summer movies.

It was perfect then, that Hallmark released a series of super hero themed coffee mugs. They did not necessarily mirror the super hero movies that were released that year but they were a nice group of coffee mugs aimed at the dads in our lives.

There were five mugs in the collection. They read,

"Dad: Man, Myth, Legend."
"To the Man Cave!"
"Super Dad."
"Dad: Not All Heroes Wear Capes."

The final mug was also available for Grandpa and read, "Grandpa: Not All Heroes Wear Capes."

If you both love superheroes and/or your dad is one, you might like to add one of these mugs to his collection.  It is going to take a bit more effort to find one now that they are out of production but that does not mean that they are impossible to find.  You can find them, not necessarily all of them at any one time, on eBay by clicking right here.

I think that they are a fun and practical gift for dad on Father's Day or, of course, on any day of the year.

Do you have a super hero in your life?
