What I figured out was pretty amazing. Several of the mugs came from events at Son Tony's high school....and this year he had his ten-year reunion! Others had logos from companies Hubby Tony used to work at, or events he'd done in the distant past. I decided to put new Fiestaware mugs on my Christmas list; they'd coordinate with the Fiesta plates and bowls I was gifted with several years ago. If I was lucky I could kiss all the old mugs goodbye.
On Christmas Day I was thrilled to receive eight mugs, each a different color. (None of them match the plates and bowls, which is the look I was going for.) When I took the Christmas coffeeware out of the cabinet last night I replaced them with the new versions. I kept three nice-looking newer mugs, and put the others in the donation pile.
