Okay, I’m back with another mug of the month! I had previously shared a Disney 100 mug that I got from the exhibit at the Franklin Institute, so I wasn’t planning on getting another mug for this occasion. However, when I saw this one, I couldn’t resist.
It’s cute, and it’s a celebration of so many different Disney characters (which is appropriate for the 100 celebration!), but it also focuses on a more specific part of Disney films that is particularly special to me… the music.
Most of the characters chosen for this mug either have music as part of their storylines, or some of the most popular Disney songs of all time (that’s why we’ve got Elsa and the Genie there, I believe). There is a staff with music notes wrapping around the characters, and some of the characters are playing their instruments – you have Joe from Soul on the piano, Mirabel playing her accordion, Peter Pan is playing his pipes, and Figment playing the violin. And appropriately, in the center, is Mickey as the conductor.
But what really “sold” me on this mug (not that it takes much!) is the text around the inside of the rim. It says “100 Years of Music and Wonder,” and I just love the celebration of Disney music!
What’s in my mug: Normally in October I’d be trying to feature a Halloween mug, but I think I’ve actually shared all of the ones I own already! However, I’ve still got the spirit of Halloween inside my mug with the coffee I’m drinking right now. It’s the Joffrey’s Disney coffee “Not-So-Scary Pumpkin Brew,” because I do love a good pumpkin coffee. And lucky for me this coffee just magically appeared in my kitchen! (I have my suspicions about which guest planted some surprise coffee as a gift for me, and I am very grateful!).
What I’m currently reading: I have a few different books typically going on at any one time, but one historical fiction novel I just finished reading is “One Woman’s War,” by Christine Wells. It’s about two different women during WWII who both got involved in the British Intelligence Division as spies – though in very different ways. I really enjoyed it overall if you like that genre!
What mug are you using right now? And what are you currently reading?
