  3. Congratulations on 150 followers! That's a nice milestone!! It's been a big month for you all around. I'm tempted to enter the blogfet because I have terrific mug that I would enter but I don't have time to make the rounds today, sadly, and THAT is definitely part of the fun!

  4. Very cool mugs. I'd be afraid to drink out of Snape's mug, it might have a potion in it. So cool they have Richard Harris, he was my favorite Dumbledoor.

    Congratulations on the 150 followers. I actually don't say a lot about my followers. I guess I should because I really appreciate them.

  5. Ooh, I love that mug. Have you seen the Downton Abbey series on PBS the last few weeks? It's been fun to watch Prof. McGonagall as the overbearing mother-in-law.

  10. Hi Michael! Make that 151 followers! Wooo!!!

  11. Big congrats on the 150 followers!!! It feels so good to keep on climbing and you do it well!!!

    I'm jealous! How dare you taunt me on my very own blog but the you show me not just one picture, but THREE!!! I must have one!!! Was this something you snagged at the Wizarding World? I'm counting the months down until I get to experience it for myself!!!!!!!!

  12. Congrats on the 150 followers - no suprise as you're so inspiring.
    Awesome mug!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Oooh wow I love the look of your mugs.
    BUT what do you drink in them or are they keepsakes?

    Congrats on 150 followers. I'm clapping too. :O)

  14. Michael - Way to make a girl feel special! Thanks so much for the shout out!
    Love the HP mug. Really need to get down to FL and experience Hogwarts for myself one day.
    Thanks again and good luck with your ABNA entry. I sent mine in too. Good luck to both of us.

  15. Thanks everyone!

    The mug is only one .... That's why it's so cool. I wish I had three! They are rare and hard to find. I found it on Ebay years ago. It's more of a keepsake, but it's my favorite mug.

    I must admit I was a bit embarrassed to show you all my tea mug. I'm real picky about thick mugs, I hate them to drink out of, so mine is an English bone china mug with hand painted blue roses.... not at all masculine. It's really beautiful and large and keeps my tea or hot cocoa supper hot. Okay, I confessed. I feel better. lol

  26. We should have done a blog fest where everyone had to guess what the favorite mug of everyone else was because most of us probably would get it right.

  32. Great mug!! And yes, I can see why it's more of a keepsake, it seems like my favorite mugs all end up handle-less. (oh, and great confession, too!) Thanks so much for participating and congrats on the followers (we're tied now, hehe).

  33. Congrats to you!!! And what a cool mug collection! Hubs would be very envious, but he doesn't drink coffee... only me~ :o)

  34. Hi there! Congrats on 150 followers. Awesome. Well deserved. Your coffee mugs are awesome yet downright scary but tell us about what you love.

    Mine do also, but I posted a bit late due to time zone confusion. Here is the link if you want to check it out:

  35. Congratulations on the 150 followers! I'm not at all surprised, you are a bright light in the blog world.

    Nice mug. :) Can't go wrong with Severus Snape.

    And I just had to read down to see the pitch for your ABNA story. Very intriguing. The extra cool thing about that story is knowing how inspired and driven you were to write it---that kind of passion can only lead to something good. Am dying for my chance to read it.

    *tick* *tock* *tick* *tock* Why, whatever is that sound? OH! It's the looming deadline for my diorama contest. ;)
