Brown Paper Packages: Edition With All The Mugs

Image: What Laura Did

Last year, I started a series on the blog to feature a few of my favorite things on the first Monday of every month. And most people who know me also know that I have a slight (very slight) problem with buying mugs. Yes, mugs. As in, for coffee and tea and other such… beverages… What. 

…so anyway, this month’s edition of Brown Paper Packages is a list of my favorite mugs because I really just want an excuse to buy more (click here to see all past editions!). 

Girls just wanna be amigas.

Broke-ass writing boss by night, broke-ass nonprofit boss by day. Done.

This gorgeous latte mug is 1) handcrafted by artisans in Tunisia and 2) as big as my face.

Because diner mugs make me feel nostalgic. Also ampersands are pretty.

I like how adult these make me feel.

I also like sloths. A lot.

YOU GUYS I can’t get over this mug series help I’m dying.

…yeah okay one more for posterity.

Pretty sure The Created Co. speaks the language of my soul.

Be the Leslie Knope you want to see in the world.

Unashamed that I am probably the last person you want at your party.

Wait, but it’s so cute. Also from the only shop that would ever make me consider moving to Minnesota.

…I know you’ve done it, don’t look at me like that.

OMG someone please stop me from buying this. I just. I need it.

You’re gonna need a mug of something for this one… In this book, boy meets girl at the top of a bell-tower where both are contemplating jumping. The next 400 pages of witty, sarcastic, beautiful storytelling is what blooms between them as they talk each other off the ledge and back into living. This month’s Paper Package of the Month is All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven.

Hey. Hey you. If you liked this month’s edition of Brown Paper Packages, don’t forget to share it with your friends using #BPPmonday!

    You and I have the same addiction. I told my boyfriend I bought some mugs and he was like, “MORE?!” I don’t consider myself super materialistic, but mugs are my weakness. Especially at places like Disney World. Thanks for sharing all these–I’m keeping in mind for a future Treat Yo’Self Day. 😀 They’re all so cute and I want them all.

      YES, Treat Yo’Self Days are EVERYTHANG. I totally understand how it feels to be misunderstood for your love of mugs. All of my roommates (current and former) liked this post on Facebook because they know it’s true. Solidarity. Mug solidarity.
