Anyway. This year, as I sipped my morning coffee from "hoot" as I've come to call it, I thought it might be time to stop plotting theft and start doing research.

- an orange walrus mug
- a blue beaver mug
- a blue goose mug
- a brown/tan polar bear mug
- the yellow owl mug
I don't know why I like them so much. Maybe because they're so clearly vintage, but graphic and modern at the same time. Maybe it's that they're just slightly awkward. Maybe it's the candy colours. I don't know. All I know is that I want them. I want them bad. Especially hoot. I think I want hoot the most.
Am I weird to love it? Isn't there anything cheap-o and old that you love? Especially at the cottage?
