The Cup: My favorite cup is this restaurant-style one. When I worked in the corporate world, my best friend and I shared many lunches together. One of the things we enjoyed the most was having a good cup of HOT coffee. We both liked the way this mug kept it hot, so we purchased a pair. When I drink my morning cup of coffee from this mug, it always reminds me of those days and the special times we shared together when she was alive.
The Bowl: Perhaps the one I treasure the most was once known as a sugar bowl. It’s lid is missing thus it became just a yellow bowl. Why do I like it? The answer is that it reminds me of my childhood. It looks like sunshine and daisies growing in a field.
The Odd Couple: Both the bowl and the cup are one-of-a-kind; meaning, there is no set and these are the only ones I have of this kind. I fondly refer to them as the odd couple. They are my favorites and stay in my cupboard while all the others get recycled.
