I could drink coffee out of my Chemex every day if I had the time. This time, I tried some local, organic coffee from a roaster in Louisville, KY, that a close family friend sent for the holidays.
It was delicious, to say the least, and served up in vintage mugs made in Syracuse, NY, that of course, I found doing my favorite activity next to making things: thrifting.
One of my favorite mugs was thrifted. I think I randomly spotted it in a Goodwill near my home and boom, it was mine. If you know me, you know I kind of have a thing for pigs. I pay homage to all things porcine–delicately placing little pigs in small corners of my world.
I’m not the kind of person that sees something with a pig on it and has to have it. I’m highly selective of my piggy products. There was something about the pig on this mug, and the vintage feel, that had me hooked. It’s one of my favorites to drink coffee out of. In honor of my pig thing, I will be sharing various pig-related items I’ve picked up along the way–mostly through thrifting or antiquing.
Do you have something you sort of collect?
