Collecting Christmas Mugs

Do you have your Christmas 
coffee mug ready?
It's the first thing I get out when it's 
time to decorate for Christmas. 
The  morning after Thanksgiving
it's  time for coffee in a Christmas mug. 
I love Christmas mugs and have been 
collecting them for years.
 Spode Christmas tree. 
I have over a dozen.
 Longaberger Traditional Holly.
 Then there are lots of pretty ones that I find
 in thrift shops for 25 cents. I try not to
  buy more, but it doesn't work out. 
 If a large group of carolers stop by and 
want hot chocolate, I'm prepared.
Notice the 2x4 blocks? I tried them 
on several shelves to elevate the back row
 of mugs. They worked out so well that now
 I'll remove them and paint them white 
so they'll be less visible.
More mugs on the picket fence mug rack.
 Coffee station.
I drink out of a different Christmas mug 
almost every day. How fun is that!

Cheers!

    I see Christmas mugs in resale shops all the time and have never purchased any. You have such a cute display. I think I will give in to collecting some also!
