Mugshot Monday #6 - Pretty Owls

Hi, hi! How was your weekend? I made the most of the glorious sunshine by taking a little daytrip to the seaside. I'lll write a proper post about it with all the snaps I took soon. 

But now for the task at hand - Mugshot Monday!

This is one of my absolute favourite mugs. I bought it whilst shopping for a friend's birthday gift several years ago; I bought her a beautiful tea/coffee pot from the same range, which I really wanted for myself, but couldn't afford to buy two of them. I consoled myself by getting this mug instead and boy, am I glad I did!

I love owls, so the design (same both sides) is what caught my eye. And the contrasting silver rim is a nice touch. It's a tin/enamel cup, like the camping kind, which I have such a soft spot for. They remind me of being little and drinking soup from a flask on long days out or camping trips. 

We had at least one when I was a kid and I used to stow it in my backpack with a bottle of squash, so I'd have something to drink whilst sat in a tree, or taking a break from dangerous adventures in the garden and field behind my house.

I love things that bring up nostalgic memories of simpler times, so this mug is an all-round winner.
