Look what Sarah gave me for Christmas…

A set of really neat handcrafted mugs, made by her friend Liz. Here’s the blue one:

    Really nice looking coffee mug! I am assuming since you said “Here is the blue one” that they are all different colors. Merry Christmas!

    Very nice! Makes me want to go have a cup of coffee!

    Very, very nice. Am I detecting a theme here?

    I really love coffee gifts. A few years ago James gave me my cappuccino machine for Christmas. It was one of the best gifts ever.

    Merry Christmas, Rob!!! Are you coming to this area for Christmas? We have a little gift for you!

    Oh, and they’re the perfect size: little 2 ounce cups instead of the bigger 4 ounce.

    Yeah, we like coffee in smaller doses. ๐Ÿ™‚

    sarah, you went with the mugs! good choice, much better than the fake leather pants you were thinking about getting him.

    Very nice…any reason we aren’t seeing pics of the whole bunch?

    Whole bunch of what? Both cups? Or cups and leather pants?

    I would love to see a picture of you drinking coffee from a Christmas-y red cup while wearing the pleather/leatherette attire, but I guess we will have to wait until your b-day.

    I do like the cup! Is the red one at your house, Sarah?

    Well, the other one’s a really neat brown glaze, but it is at Rob’s house with the blue one.

    Jules, coffee gifts are great. Since coffee is such an infinitely consumable product, the possibilities are nearly endless!

    I am so weird. I read through everything, and I am not sure where I got the idea there was a red cup.

    very cool.. almost as good as the leather pants idea. ๐Ÿ˜†

    I just made an assumption from your statement that they were each slightly different and wondered why you only chose to photograph one!

  15. Sarah Avatar

    Hmmm, Carl raises a good point. Why did you only photograph the blue one?

  16. Rob Avatar

    Thanks a lot, Carl. Ok, the brownish mug was dirty at the time of the photo. And being somewhat lazy, I opted to photograph only the clean one.

    But then I bet you people already knew that, eh?

    I’m so glad you got to use it already. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Did the coffee truly taste better because of its container?

    Wait- why would one look for a “smaller dose” coffee cup? I’m still looking for Gallon Gulp size since drinking it straight from the pot is so messy; although you never dirty a cup that way…
