Birthday present

I found this hiding in the cupboard, awaiting my morning latte yesterday. It's a gift from Alex and I love it. (I, um, may have sent him a link to this thing last week just in case he needed any suggestions. A girl can't rely on telepathy, you know.) These kitties are available at Abodeon or ModCloth.

Aww... I love it!! At first, tho, I thought the cats were gonna be upside down when you turned it over to fill it, but I see it's a lid, and not the bottom of the cup. ;)

Good goin', Alex... in taking the hint!! :)

Love to you both,
Mum

P.S. One of my words is "hincism". That must be what Alex did.

Oh my love, that is so pretty! Being a cat lover myself, I may try some of that hinicism myself, if it'll get me a cup like that:)

Kalyn Ernest said...

Love it! I send my husband links all of the time. It kind of ruins the surprise, but at least we both know I will like it!

Jessica Jones said...

Hinicism definitely works.

That's cute, you do love the cats, don't you? (Started folloing you on instagram so see all your lovely black cat photos). It's cute the way the different shapes fit in together. Maybe I'll try to design something like that.

So Cute! I too thought the mug was upside down, but I see a comment saying it's a lid...what a cute idea!

Jessica Jones said...

Yup, it's a lid. Confirmed.

Judy, I do like cats, but I've never used Instagram so you must be following someone else!

Love, love, love this mug. Its fabulous. As a lover of all things mid mod and a crazy cat lady (we have 4) I think I most definitely need this mug.

I totally love it! I'm a cat lover and a love the colors! If it were mine would be my favorite mug!

You're lucky. Even if I give suggestions to my husband he never doesn't know what gift doing to me.... sig. :D

Oh! This reminds me of when I was a little little kid and I found a fancy coffee mug with a matching lid that I gave to my grandma for Christmas... and she liked it! (which is saying a lot, because my grandma's hard to please and she doesn't pull any punches). Anyway... I know that's not really relevant, is it? I really want this mug now!

Jessica Jones said...

Maybe your grandma needs one, too. :) I liked your story.

Coming out of lurkdom to tell you that I really love the mug - and to wish you a very Happy Birthday!!

My birthday is today, and this reminds me about one of the greatest presents my kids gave me when they were little - a whale mug. I esp. loved how the whale-tail fit perfectly in my hand, even more appreciated as arthritis decided to take residence there!

Through the years it broke somehow - so I kept doing searches, and was surprised to actually find not one, but two. Of course, I bought them. Was a cute replacement, and I loved showing my now-adult kids how much that gift meant to me. :D

Wishing you many, many happy days!!
