200th Follower Anthropologie Mug Giveaway

I was pretty surprised and thrilled to find I have 200 followers - I honestly thought I would be doing well to have 50 at the end of my first year.  It seems a fitting time for another giveaway so I thought two Anthropologie mugs would be perfect.  Everybody loves themselves some Anthropologie and I've always adored their mugs.  It may sound crazy, but I've never bought myself one because I'm too indecisive to make up my mind which style I like better.

Let me introduce you to them, in case you haven't seen them.


There is the classic shaped mug with a simple stylish font.  Love it!


And here's the font for each letter - clean, simple, classic!



Then there's the pretty footed mug with a flowery font on it.  Also love it!


And the details for each letter are gorgeous.

See what I mean - they are both great, but very different.  I'm curious to know which style everyone prefers.  The winner gets two mugs so you can:
  • have one from each style - the classic one at work and the flowery one on weekends
  • or have one for yourself and one for your mate
  • or have one to keep and one to give away
  • or an 'X' and an 'O' so you can drink from a hug mug in the morning and a kiss mug at night
It's up to you.  Tough decisions, I know!
And now for the giveaway details - 
  1.  For one entry, leave a comment telling me which style of mug you prefer and how you will decide what two initials you would like.
  2. For a second entry, become a follower and let me know in a comment (or if you are already a follower let me know in a second comment).
  3. For a third entry blog, tweet, post on facebook, or put it on the sidebar of your blog and let me know in a comment that you have done so.
The giveaway ends Monday, October 18th at 9:00 (EST).  Just so you know this is a giveaway that keeps on giving, because once I have drawn a winner then Kate and I get to go and visit one of our favourite stores and buy the mugs for the winner.  See it is a win-win situation.  That being said there will be a bit of a delay from drawing the winner and sending out the prize, but I'll keep the winner posted via email.

  1. I love the flowery ones... and girl, you are crazy not to have bought yourself one or two by now given you like them so much. If I were to win them, I'de tell you to keep them for yourself, an X and an O... in your choice of style. :-)

  5. My husband and I both have one of these mugs. A sweet friend got us them for Christmas. He got a simple one and I got a flowery one. I think I'd like a flowery one "A" and a plain "T"

  44. We recently got married and received a lot of mugs as wedding gifts, so I would like to give these as a gift to a couple we just met. We were at their house drinking tea, but they only had 2 unmatching mugs. I know they would love these! I think the X and O idea is so cute and you can't go wrong with the classic beautiful mug. Thanks!

  45. I love the footed flowery mugs and would have to choose H and L for my Grandma and Great Aunt. I'd love to keep them for myself but these would be such wonderful gifts to give to two wonderful people.

    Thanks for the opportunity.
