The Mug That Means Fall

By | September 25, 2012

Everyone has the signal for the beginning of fall. The biggest harbinger is of course the Pumpkin Spice Latte. I think for many of us the “opening day” for this delicious drink is a holiday in itself.

I’m not going to talk about Pumpkin Spice Latte Day though. It’s a great day, don’t get me wrong, but I have my own indicator of the blessed season.

My pumpkin mugs.

The Mug That Means Fall

I bought these suckers (I have two of them) years ago from Starbucks. They are the most perfect mugs you could ever hold because they mean that fall is here.

They’re kind of a tad bittersweet though. My best friend and I would share a pot of coffee between these two mugs and craft up a storm together.  Not as in “witchcraft” crafting, as in wreath-making and hair-accessory-making type of “craft.”

 Not that you’d think we were dropping spider legs and sparrow brains into a smoking cauldron in hopes to eliminate true love from the world forever. Muahahahaha!!!!  But just in case that crossed your mind for some reason.

Back to my mugs and friend. WAAAAHHH!! I had to go and move all far away and the second mug sits empty…

Until Matt uses it and says something totaly insensitive like, “Oh, I love this mug.” And I’m all, “You have no idea.”

    LOVE THIS MUG! Seriously how adorable is that thing?! I know a special place that second one can call home ???? For me, breaking out the crock pot also signals fall. Love cooking up something that makes the house smell delish all day long. Great post! (Came over from SITS!)

    i love these little reminders of far-away friends … even though they do give you a little heart-pang, they also tend to make you smile!

    Hahaha! Mugs are special to me because of the memories they hold ???? It always makes me think of my best friend and those great times we had during the fall.

    Stopping by from SITS today! Love your mug! For me it is a mug with hot apple cider that signals fall. I have an unhealthy mug collection, so really just about any of them will do! Feeling the need to get special fall one now though…..

    I know what its like to move away from friends. My kitchen was always the fall gathering place for my friends while our kids ran crazy. Not sure if I love your mug as much as you do but each to their own ????

    I have a fall mug too and it’s all I can do to keep from giving the hubs the side eye when I see him using it. Really, don’t they understand that a girl’s mug is sacred?

    I love this mug! Not only is it fall themed but it looks like it will hold a lot of bean juice!
