Mugshot Monday #18 - It's a Jungle Out There


Good morning, friends!

I got back from my mini holiday yesterday afternoon and man, I am t-i-r-e-d. I had the best time though, so it's totally worth being exhausted for. I've got tons of photos from the trip, which I'll divide up into several posts over the next week or so.

Back to business! I am nearing the end of my Mugshot Monday series - next week will be the last one. Mega sad face. I've deliberately saved what I consider to be two of the best, until last.

Today's mug is a vintage gem. I think it belonged to my stepdad when he was young and was made by Wade Ceramics. The mug is part of a collection designed for Boots, called Jungle Fun.

I LOVE this mug! The design wraps all the way round and features a jungle scene full of cute and kitschy animals.






Would you just look at those colours?! I think the wacky lion peeping through the foliage is my favourite part. 

The mug is showing signs of wear and  tear and is terribly stained inside. I'm hoping I can get rid of it with some soda crystals or bleach. The outside is still looking pretty rad though, considering its age. 

I plan to hold onto this bad boy for a long time yet. 

And right now I plan on going back to bed for a bit, because I can barely keep my eyes open. 



Have a great Monday, all!
