While I'm not the biggest animal fan in the world (I'm particularly edgy around dogs after having been bitten twice in my 30 years) I had to smile when I'm clapped eyes on these bright and cheerful ceramics from Jane Foster.
Available at Hunkydory Home (one of my favourite online shops for quirky homewares), the new designs - featuring lions, sausage dogs, a red fox, pandas and a cat - start from just £4.
Based in Devon, Jane's work is, quite clearly, influenced by all things Scandinavian and I'm sure you'll agree it's always nice to have a few fun bits and pieces amongst your usual plain white crockery.
The panda, in particular, makes me larf. Just look at his cheeky face (above).
I'll be taking a look at the range and making a purchase soon; I think my three nephews (regular visitors to the BTTOH household) will love drinking fizzy pop from these.
Are you an animal fan?
Pssst! Don't forget to keep an eye on the blog for a fun high street giveaway - coming soon!
