hey all my thrifting friends out there - do me a favor, keep an eye out for these ceramic animal coffee mugs, would ya? my mom gave me the ones we had as a kid, the alligator, monkey, and giraffe. and i found the ostrich and lion over the last few years. i think they are too sweet! and i especially love that my kids drink their hot chocolate in them after playing in the snow.
here's the weird thing though - can't find pictures of them anywhere on google. i did find a set of fairy tale ones, looks like the same "artist" and they were made by carol wright. the ostrich and lion are both stamped jsny taiwan, but the others are blank. i always look for them while i'm thrifting, i'd love to collect more of them. so if you come across one, pick it up for me and i'll pay you to ship it - or maybe we can work a trade or something? :) happy thrifting!
