i wake up every morning and with very little exception i pour myself a cup of iced coffee in my guy michael davis porcelain cup in green. i will do this until i break all four that I have purchased or move onto the next life, whichever comes first. it makes me so happy to start my day like this, so i went with that feeling and found some fun cups and mugs that would start or end anyone’s day with style…
