I love it that this coffee mug is textured and that the handle is one gigantic pretzel. This is a larger coffee mug and thank god I drink de-caf when at “Willis Wonderland”. If I had regular coffee in this size mug, I would be cleaning “WW” with a toothbrush. I’m not good with full on caffeine.

Who doesn’t love owls?

A motivational coffee mug? That’s what I mean, drinking regular coffee would have me disco dancing all over the place. Such an amazing mug!

This has got to be from the 70’s. What’s the point of putting “etc” on a coffee mug? This one is smaller in size and just one of the hundreds of mugs that can be spotted in the kitchen (or studio) when the coffee is flowing.

I love this one! I have no idea if this design is supposed to represent someone in particular but doesn’t matter, this one is a favorite of mine in the coffee cup collection here at “WW”.

Everyone should drink their coffee out of a vintage cup. THIS WAS NOT taken at “Willis Wonderland”. This is me at home drinking my morning coffee in the only vintage coffee cup I own.

    Denny, there’s no sign of “Denny‚Äôs Adventures in Allee Willis‚Äô ‚ÄúWillis Wonderland‚Äù parts 19 or 20… just wanted you to know so you don’t think I’m going out of order here.

    The pretzel mug is giant and seriously ugly but very popular around here. It’s about 9 inches tall.

    The owl mug is part of a set of four.

    I only have one of this particular Disco mug in the third photo but have a lot of other different styles of Disco mugs.

    The etc. mug is indeed from the 70’s. The font is very typical of those that were in this style back then and it wasn’t unusual to see very short words used in this way on mugs.

    I believe that the white milk glass mug with a face on it is from Pat Collins’ Hip Hypnotist Club that used to be on Sunset Boulevard.

    How on earth can you only own one vintage coffee cup??????? I do love the one you have though and pray that you have or find a whole set of them. So 60’s!
