My most favorite coffee mug EVER was given to me by a very good friend named Steve. It was a hand-made mug that was designed to look like tree bark. The handle was "oh- so comfy".... and it kept any cup of joe super warm. Ufortunately the coffee mug was used so much that it's life was cut short when it fell from the counter to its death on a tile floor. I miss that mug and its creator!!
