From the website:
I love twitter from it I have discovered all manner of different online shops and brands, one of my latest ‘finds’ is Howkapow – I found them while they were running a competition to win a gorgeous Round Birds Mug which I was lucky enough to win and I knew I had to share them with you.
Run by the husband and wife team of Rog and Cat How, Howkapow set out to bring you vibrant, colourful and innovative designs from up and coming talent. With an ever changing stock in the categories of jewellery, accessories, home wares and illustration there is something for everyone that is bound to put a smile on even the grumpiest of faces.
As there site says:
A Round Birds Mug designed exclusively for Howkapow by illustrator, Sam Harris. It features 24 bulbous birds from around the world – including the Robin, Pheasant, Woodpecker, Parakeet and, er, the Fairy Pitta.
It’s made from fine bone china; is microwave and dishwasher safe and printed in Stoke-on-Trent.
I have to admit I just think it’s so cute – the way the little birds are drawn each with their name underneath – I guess you could say I’m a cute cartoon girl and these fit the bill 100%. I mean look at the Robin with his big red breast.
To buy the bird mug head to there website where you can grab one for £10.95
