If I had to describe myself, it would be in a word that has many meanings with a complexity which falls off the tongue.
A word made up of many elements, is deceptive in appearance, and creates an illusion from the imagination.
My word would be Phantasmagoric. ~Summer Ross

Coffee mug blogfest entry

I am  participating in a blogfest. You all know how much I love blogfests.

Erica and Christy are gracious hosts this time around with their Hot coffee mug blogfest. Click here to read/see the entries.


 The rules:
"Simply post a picture of your very favoritest mug. The one you'd choose to drink from every time if it never needed to spend any time in the dishwasher.  The one you secretly eye whenever your significant other, mother, brother, best friend, [insert other] grabs it from the cupboard and you hold yourself back from snatching it out of their hand and shouting, "Give it back!  It's mine.  All mine!"

Or just one you like almost that much.

You don't have to share anything about the mug, but if you'd like to share the story behind it, well, that would just be an added bonus.  Most of my mugs hold a special significance.  I usually buy one while taking a vacation and have started a collection."

Here is my mug, I'm sure I don't need to explain to anyone who reads my blog why. But for those just passing through, it is the only fairy coffee mug I own. Fairies are my favorite thing- second to pens.

That is so you, Summer! I love it! Does this faerie have a name? Just curious.... :)
And man, you are so right about the eying of the mug if someone else has it. Ooo... that ruffles my feathers!

Wow, that mug is almost not safe for work.

My wife broke my favorite mug. it was an x-files: The Truth is out there mug. I had it for since 1995 and it had gone all over the world with me, but it didn't survive the first year of marriage. Why was she even using it!?!

Mary Vaughn said...

I've never seen a mug like that one. It certainly is fitting.

Madeleine said...

Suits you :)

erica and christy said...

Whoa, hot stuff there! But I sort-of wonder why you don't just keep your pens in it and unite your two loves together forever (hehe)!!

Thanks so much for participating, it's fun to get a peek at everyone's tastes!

alexia said...

So pretty, I love that artist!

J.C. Martin said...

A pretty fairy mug...and a pretty hot fairy! :)

Will Burke said...

Yeah, no surprises there! Have you read any Elizabeth Bear? You might not like her take on Faeries, but she makes them emotionless and kinda brutal. Appearently, that was the popular perception before Disney got ahold of them.

Mia Hayson said...

Cool! Her wings are so beautiful, they look like they mean she is camoflauged in the trees.

:D

I LOVE that mug, and have seen that artist's work before. One of my daughters is really into the artist's work too--she had a calendar of the artwork. :) Happy weekend!
