Mugged... Again

High in the butler's pantry of Hillcrest Cottage...

is my Christmas obsession...

The Santa Mugs!!!

Fifty Strong and anxious to begin their annual Hillcrest Cottage mugging.

The jolly mugs are winking and ready to have their empty heads filled with hot apple cider and strong coffee with real cream. That guy on the left is definitely up to something.

Now that my vintage 1960's Santa mug collection is strong and vibrant...

My Collecting Guidelines:
1.) Must say "Japan" on the bottom.
2.) Must pay less than $5.00
3.) May make exceptions to these rules whenever I want
4.) Pottery Barn is selling fun imitations this season ... couldn't resist because they are microwavable and dishwasher safe.

Christmas is tip-toeing into Hillcrest Cottage.


  1. These are adorable! How can you be in a grouchy mood when sipping something in a Santa cup? It could be laced with poison and it's still going to go down happy! Love this!
