|Retro dip-glazed coffee mugs|
I can't even recall where exactly this kind of mug featured in my childhood, but I was recently watching a tv show set in the early 80s and the swaggering lead was slurping his instant coffee from one of these quirky dip-glazed mugs and something in my brain was screaming 'you need some of those!'. Maybe my Nanna had some? Whatever the case, it became my mission to find some.
Well, six op shops, two markets and one dollar later I had procured there two little beauties. The retro colours are so warm and happy, and the divine pearlescent purple sheen just barely evident on the dip-glazing is so beautiful. There's something so enchanting and endearing about their wonkiness. I must find more!
