This is the coffee mug I was talking about on my previous entry discussing unique cups/glasses. It’s about an inch shorter than a regular Starbucks tumbler and could hold up to two cups of coffee. It’s quite big, yes.
Mitch and I found this while walking around Glorietta after work hours. We found this in a shop called Seeds, which holds quite a lot of unique handcrafted household items, jewelry, and art pieces. This particular mug costs 350pesos and was the only big one left, but I was lucky that they were holding a sale that day, so I got it for a little over 200pesos. For something as adorable as this, that’s a great steal.
I was able to visit Seeds the other day and saw three mugs with the same concept. Only small ones remain, though. I guess the big mugs are more appealing than their petite counterpart.
The petite (as I’d like to call them) mugs sell for 200-250pesos. I’m giving myself a margin of error here since I can’t remember the exact price ‘cause I was focused on looking for a going away gift for The Boyfriend’s little cousin.
Seeds is located at Glorietta 4 near Food Choices and across Holland Tulips.
There’s something about unique glasses which I love. For starters, they’re unique, which you do not need to know ‘cause they’re pretty darn obvious. The second and most important reason why I love ‘em is because they’re fun. We all need a little somethin’ somethin’ to make us smile, y’know. I actually own a unique mug and I’d love to post a picture of it once my camera meets its doctor. *sigh*
Back to the point of this entry. I chanced upon an image of a glass and I let the intarwebs do its magic. Several minutes later, I already have images of cool, fun, and unique glasses I would love to have. *ehem, friends, ehem* Hee. Check ‘em out:
Hopside Down: Crazy cool. Crazy fun.
Ghost Goblet: Now this is a fun and elegant way to spend those sipping-wine-while-watching-the-telly moments. <3
Petit Coeur red wine glass: Is it just me or does this thingy look like a heart? Weird, eh? But cool. Really cool.
Ludico Tilted Shot Glasses: I am on a serious lookout for a set of tilted shot glasses. Glasses like this one would make a cool Christmas present, y’know! :>
split cup-and-saucer: C’mon, don’t tell me this ain’t cute. It’s adorable. Think about how you and your partner could literally split a cup of coffee. Har. I’m in love with this. Oh, the idea of sweet mornings and a cup of coffee shared w/ Hun. My heart’s grinning. lol
Stacked: my dream cup. I’ve always wanted something like this, ever since I saw a drawing of this awesome creation. It’s a playful way of drinking some serious beans. :)
I should probably start scribbling my Christmas wish list. Hee.
