Maybe it’s just me, but in the winter I have a mug in my hands basically at all times. Blame it on my bad circulation (gotta keep the fingers warm somehow, right?), but mugs are basically a staple of my wardrobe at this point. I have a mug for every mood, month and major meteorological event. I even have a rather impractical boot-shaped mug (thank you, Vancouver Christmas Market). For all my fellow mug-lovers out there, here are eleven stunning mugs to add to your collection before it's too warm for mugs to be an acceptable accessory. Where they ever? I'll leave that up to you.
