Mug Heaven Ceramic Handmade Mug Giveaway

Click Here for More Giveaways

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.

    [...] Ceramic Handmade Mug by Mug Heaven [...]

  • 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.

  • You were voted the “Greatest Coffee Mug” winner in the “Coffee Drinkers Anonymous” sweepstakes. Congratulations.

  • 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.
