There just might be a few collections around my house. Candles, martini glasses, menorahs, baskets, yarn, and fiber all seem to have plenty of company around here. One of the other cupboards that is crowded is the mug shelf in the kitchen. For years, we've collected coffee mugs from places we've been, and I enjoy the conversation that ensues when I use a selection of these for coffee at a dinner party.
