My son loves to drink chocolate milk out of a coffe mug, he also LOVES anything skully (Apple doesn't fall far from the tree) I know this would be his new favorite chocolate milk mug and I would certainly sport it for my morning coffee :)

This mug would get double duty, boyfriend and his tea in the early morning and then my coffee mid-morning. Although it may end up on my desk holding some art pens.

This would be my new coffee mug to replace my old skull mug which got broken, which I then tried to glue together.

I love all things 'skullyish' and it would be an honor to drink coffee from one of these skull mugs..

I work for a Civil War Medical Museum where death and skulls, and the valuable information you can learn from both, is our main business. Just, walking around the office, drinking tea or coffee, or enjoying mug-a-soup, from this type of mug keeps me in step with our daily programs.

Tegan W. said...

Adorable mugs!! Perfect to add to my skull collection. I'd fill it w/chocolate coconut milk ice cream!

BudZocka said...

I´m into skulls since I was about seven years old, seeing the first couple of hanging skulls with black and orange hair on a string at the annual octoberfest where my parents took me in 1972. But I was too young. I didnt got one. I had to wait for many years and when I was 12 I got the first skull in my live. During this time of waiting I had those skulls always on my mind.I´m also a very individualistic kind of person. I like unique things most. No mainstream mass stuff. These mugs have both - Skulls and individual, unique art and character. Thats my reason I wanne own one!

blowin birdies said...

Just what I always wanted. My own little skull mug. I will name it Bitchin, and I will hug it and pet it and fill it with vodka...
