Categories: mugs, soda-fired, stamped, weather

Kicking back enjoying a quiet, white, snowy day for another Mugshot Monday!
Looks like I might need to make some hot chocolate while my new Roomba
is making its maiden voyage around my place! Just a little Christmas Gift to myself…
as I had completely worked my previous Roomba to death!!!

HAPPY MUGSHOT MONDAY… with Instagram greetings from friends in Colorado who were apparently snuggling down on a cold Winter’s night with a mug of something frothy & yummy! Thanks for sharing Kristin & Camden!

‘Twas the night before Christmas…
and all through the house, not a creature was stirring…
except this “yahoo” who is still frantically wrapping presents!

Like this mug duo with a hint of a “chocolate mint” theme!
Guess this is what happens when “someone” plays a bit too much leading up to Christmas?!

Happy Mugshot Monday… with what looks like an early Christmas gift for Beckie’s Mom!!!
I’m sure her coffee will taste much better now, right?!!!
