February 4, 1994 I finished up a Friday teaching school, went to the gym for a step aerobics class, came home to shower, slipped on my roommate’s little black dress, and stepped out for a night of ballroom dancing that would forever change the course of my life.
Twenty-three years later, I declared the 23rd anniversary of when you meet your soulmate “The Ugly Mug-versary!”
And Ugly Mug-versary we celebrate with a vengeance here at The Shoebox.
Inspired by lovely mugs like this:
I created this mugstrosity:
Notice the inside is brown so he can just rinse with coffee and use again.
I’m a thinker.
Buds was also quick to point out I’ve made a habit of green and purple mugs:
Now that our mug-versary is over, I’ll be taking orders for the 2017 holiday season, folks! Any mug painted in green and purple, I’m your gal.
Don’t wait too long.
Pottery Perfection like this can’t be rushed.
Happy Meeting Anniversary, Buds. Wouldn’t change a thing.
