Just My Cup of Tea: The Lover’s Tea Cup

I tried to channel all of my goofy lovey-dovey feelings for this collection of mugs to sip from while reading The Lover’s Dictionary by David Levithan (review), but as it turns out caffeine fiends are salty until they down at least two cups of joe. I saw more coffee cups saying things like, “I love you more than coffee, but not always before I’ve had coffee” than a simple “I love you, k?” (or some such variation). Still, the cups I managed to find are quite charming.

Which mug is your favorite?

I find myself most drawn to the heart-print cozy. I always thought a cozy for a cup was a bit silly, but I keep seeing them, and I find I’m growing quite partial to them.

  1. I only have three books that I’m reading right now. Well, they’re mostly sitting there waiting to be read. I get caught up in doing things (which takes me a little longer than it used to, at least for right now) and then one day I’ll stumble across one, and say “oh yeah, I gotta read that some day”)
    And I will. Or not.


      • The Right Image by James D. Horan, a political thriller
        Gabriela, Clove and Cinnamon, by Jorge Amato, not sure what it’s about yet
        Train Your Mind, Change Your Brain, by Sharon Begley, pretty much what the title says. Figured it couldn’t hurt.


  2. Actually, that cup cozy is a pretty good idea, if you just nuked your coffee for a minute or so and now it’s too hot to carry around.
