  1. Absolutely charming! And "A Grandfather's Gift" is very like a certain cup I've seen before.
    I was thrilled recently to find another mug for Francis (son number 4) but I'm still searching for Matthew, Joel and Jacob!

  2. I have three sons; Michael, Jonas and David. I own a "David" plate. I have never seen the other names on plates or mugs. I have seen "Matthew" and perhaps even "Jacob."
