More Mug Shots: A Giveaway!

I have been trying out different mugs, attempting to find a replacement for my 2, count them, 2 broken sacred mugs.  Alas, nothing has been quite right yet.

Carolyn has a special mug. She writes,  “My favorite mug was a gift from my son, Neill, who lives in Sheffield, England, hand carried on his last visit.  I have a chicken design thing going on in my kitchen –   Cath Kidston is a Martha Stewart sort-of-designer in the UK –  Another adorable design from Cath Kidston, this Cockerel mug is perfect for breakfast time. The Cockerel is also known as a rooster but this wouldn’t sound as good! He is actually a young male chicken immediately identifiable by his comb on top of his head and his dangly bit underneath his chin which is called a wattle.

The cockerel symbol is used worldwide as emblems and is used often in kitchens for breakfast time as the cock announces sunrise and time to wake up. This mug is cheery and bright and full of vintage charm, nothing less we expect from the wonderful Cath Kidston designs. Cock-a-doodle-doo!”


Barb is a spinner and knitter in Washington. Her mug represents some of her interests.

Send me your Mug Shot!  Send a photo of your favorite mug, and I will enter your name in a drawing for one of ours.   Email to FromSkilledHands AT gmail  DOT com.

    Both of these mugs are so very colorful! I think I would love a “rooster” cup like that, for myself—even though I don’t use cups anymore….!
