Mug Heaven Ceramic Handmade Mug Giveaway

Click Here for More Giveaways

This Giveaway is Closed – Thank You!

Whether you’re a book lover, a music lover, or both, chances are you like to indulge in your appreciation of either with a hot cup of your favorite coffee or tea by your side.  I prefer having a favorite mug to fill; something that’s mine and mine alone.  For years now I’ve used the same old tired yellow mug that sports a faded cartoon of the Chicago skyline.  I overpaid for it in the Hancock Tower gift shop, and although it represents a very pleasant day, it was time to replace it with something not so worn.  Mug Heaven has such a large selection of handmade ceramic mugs that choosing one to replace my old standby was an enjoyably difficult task.  Animal mugs, personalized mugs, beautifully glazed pottery pieces that looked more like art – and that’s where I stopped.

See the photo above?  It’s the mug I chose, my new sidekick while I blog, read, listen to music.  It’s sitting next to me right now, filled with my favorite cappuccino.  A beautiful piece which came wrapped with extreme care, so it looked simply brilliant when I received it.  There’s something about a good mug that makes drinking coffee and tea seem more satisfying, like a little indulgence in the midst of my usually busy day.  If you’ve ever used a good pottery mug, you probably noticed its tendency to hold onto the heat a little more than the average mass-produced, thin walled piece.  That and, darn, cappuccino just looks better surrounded by a mug called “Golden Toffee and Raspberry“.  

This is where it gets fun:  Mug Heaven is giving away a mug to one carp(e) libris reviews reader.  The winner gets to select the perfect mug to fit their personality; up to a $20 selection!

    I just spent an entire hour “studying” all the heavenly mugs and I learn… that I must have multiple personalities because I love and can personally relate to dozens of them! I’m still torn between 5 mugs – but I’ll bite the bull and narrow it down to the that both reflect my style, taste, and sense of design and color: The Midnight Wave Pottery Stoneware Mug and the Black Purple Fusion Pottery Mug.(The Golden Toffee & Raspberry Mug was in my top 5!)
    Whew this was like being treated to a special dinner at a 5 Star reataurant and having to choose what to order – when you want one of everything!

    Wow! The Red Dragon Tankard would be my choice. Reminds me of the Danny Kaye movie where he had to remember a saying about the Red Dragon flagon. I loved that movie.

    I love the Dragonfly Handpainted Latte Pottery Mug 16 Oz beause it is simple, yet elegant. I have always loved the dragonfly design. I like the shape of the cup – it is wider at the top than the bottom – very pretty.

    Margaret Snyders last blog post..Simply Stacie Giveaways

  • I’m totally addicted to coffee and have a cup with me throughout each day. I’ve accumulated almost half a ream of paper with pictures of nothing but coffee mugs. Not one of them is “exactly” what I’ve been looking for. My search for the perfect mug has been a long one. I’ve talked coffee mugs to my husband til he’s gone half bald and sometimes turns his hearing aid off to block me out. After searching the internet for several months, I discovered your website at the bottom of an E-Bay page. It had to be fate!!! Once I entered your site, I felt like a kid on Christmas morning. FINALLY – GREAT COFFEE MUGS!!! You may, very well, be the only folks in the world who knows just how to make one. I’m leaning toward item MRISSMMULSTE. I love the glaze, the shape of the handle, the size, and the fact that you even put a sloped lip on the mug so you can sip hot coffee without spilling it down your shirt. I promptly signed up for your newsletter tonight (or maybe I should say “this morning; it’s 1:15AM). I also put you in “Favorites”, because I like a lot of your other pottery, too. I may have to purchase a couple of mugs at a time, because hubby thinks you can find a good mug for a Walmart price, but I will definitely be buying them. Please thank your pottery artists for their great talent.

  • MRISSMMULSTE spells great mug. Just like “moone” spells “moon” on an old movie and fabulous book. I can’t place my order until March. Really anxious to order my first of many.

  • It’s snowing, my coffee’s getting cold using this old mug, and I wish I had the one I’m longing for. Have a great snowy day.

  • I’m excited. I just noticed I was voted the “Greatest Coffee Mug” winner in your sweepstakes. Does that mean I’ll get one of the coffee mugs I’m yearning for? What ever the prize – Thanks so much.

  • The snows been on the ground for several days, now. That’s quite unusual for the region where I live. It’s now growing old and depressing. The coffee mug of my dreams (which is one of your many fantastically made, gorgeous mugs) filled with steaming coffee would certainly cheer me up about now.

    I’m also a subscriber. Please enter my entries into the sweepstakes contest. Thanks.

  • Two per week – that’s the number of snow storms we’ve had so far this winter. Another one’s coming tonight. I’d love to curl up in front of a cozy fire with a good book and “your” coffee mug filled with steaming coffee. I can hear the crackle of the fire and the aroma of fresh coffee just thinking about it. Canned coffee would never touch the inside of one of “your” mugs. I only use freshly ground, specialty coffee.

  • It’s Valentine’s Day – one of a girl’s favorite days of the year. The weather’s bitter cold. A nice day to snuggle with Hubby and sip on steaming hot coffee in one of your great mugs. Hope you have a great Valentine’s Day.

  • Mug MRISS MM ULSTE (Stendahl pottery mug) – I looked back over your website again this morning. The Stendahl mug is still my favorite. It would be on display every day, because I always have a cup of coffee in my hand or nearby. I volunteer at a local hospital. If I won this mug, I’d proudly take it to work to show the girls. They’d go wild. I’d also be ordering several more matching mugs, plus one to take to the hospital. You never know. Customers seeing my mug sitting on the counter just might drum up more business for you. I’d have to keep your website address handy just in case. Pleaseeeee – Choose my entry for this “Mug of My Dreams”.

  • Mug MRISS MM ULSTE with the beautiful Stendahl glaze fits my pesonality to a tee. I’ve never “gone with the crowd”. This mug’s firing process is completely different than the others. I’m completely different than the others; I’m my own person. I’d love to win this mug. Please consider me. Thanks. All the other volunteers at the hospital are rooting for me. Hope that helps my luck. Thanks.

  • I’m beginning to think I’m using your contest entry site as my daily journal. I’ve sat in front of my computer looking over D&B handbags for hours today. Choosing a new one is almost as difficult as deciding on a new house. Choosing “the mug to die for” from your company wasn’t easy either; at least it wasn’t easy until I ran across your Stendahl glazed coffee mug. At that moment, I fell in love. My printout picture of the coffee mug sits by my side as I work away on my computer. Today would have been a great day to have had it.

  • Ahh!! My first cup of coffee in the morning would taste so much better in your Standahl mug. I can almost smell the coffee aroma.

  • I’ve become obsessed with your Standahl pottery mug. My husband and I are leaving on a cruise next week. The ships usually offer computer access. I’m wondering if that will be the case onboard this particular ship, so I can make my daily entries. If not, I may suffer from anxiety until I get home to see if I won “the mug of my dreams”.

  • No time to talk today; I’m getting ready for vacation. I still stop for an occational cup of coffee, though. Sure do wish I had that mug.

  • I’m almost afraid to go on vacation, because I’ll miss sending you my daily entries. Please don’t forget me. I love your Stendahl mug.

  • Well – Vacation is here. This will have to be my last entry in your contest. Your contest will be over when I get home on March 4 evening. I’ve enjoyed entering every day, since I found your website. Needless to say, I really hope I win the Stendahl mug. If I don’t, though, congratulations to the winner.
