Do you drink coffee or tea daily? Do you use the same mug or cup even though you have 18 others to pick from?
I had a favorite mug for a long, long time. It broke. I can't remember what happened but I had to select another and one of Petey's lighthouse mugs looked perfect.
I was correct! It holds the right amount of java for my morning blast of caffeine and the handle fits my mitt like a glove. It's all about the handle for me. I need all four fingers to settle in; no squeezing.
Here's my personal question: does the inside of your mug look like this?
It does? Whew! I know it's possible to scrub that stain out of there with some elbow grease and chemicals but I simply don't see the point.
I love this mug so much that the chip on the opposite rim doesn't bother me - unless I switch hands.
