I visited "Hannesol" 's blog,
and she challenged her visitors to show of their favorite coffee cup (or mug).
Well my favorite coffee cup is probably one I never use.
It live in my curio cabinet, it's quite old,
and it has "Bestemor" (grandmother) written in gold letters on it.
I am a grandmother, so maybe I need to get it out...
My everyday cup is a coffee mug, and it is used several times a day.
I am afraid I started my coffee addiction pretty early.
On my way to Sunday school (age 5-6),
I would always stop at my aunt Siren's house
to fill my pockets with coffee beans.
I considered it a treat,
and would chew on them during the Sunday school lesson.
Aunt Siren always grinded her own coffee
in a coffee-grinder just like the one above.
The smell was wonderful....
I also like a cup of warm tea. Preferable with sugar and milk.
My tea cup was given to me as a part of a set,
from a group of girls friends, almost 20 years ago.
Time is passing faster and faster...
Well, I will challenge everyone (you) who visit my blog,
to share a picture of their own favorite cup, story etc.
Either on their own blog (please let me know),
or as a comment here on mine.
I love porcelain. As young,
both my parents used to work at the Porcelain Factory (Egersund Fajanse)
in my home town, my mother as a painter.
But that's another story...
