GE mug

This GE mug, with a green rather than customary blue logo, was probably used to promote the company's "greener" corporate image. The elegant and timeless GE logo stands out among the many soulless and generic logos that are used today.
Thanks Nancy.

Astrology mug

A mug straight out of the 1970's- you could start every morning as if it were the 'dawning of Age of Aquarius' with coffee served in this cool astrology themed mug.

Cinco de Mayo mug

In honor of Cinco de Mayo I chose a Mexican themed mug this week. This is one I picked up on a visit to Los Angeles. Years ago I was lucky enough to be given a mini- tour of L.A. by author, graphic artist and California connoisseur - Jim Heimann. One of the places we stopped was La Luz de Jesus, where I saw this gem on the shelves. When tilted the Mayan head rocks approvingly up and down.
