Bonus Bone: Moab Mug Trees

I am still busy editing, photoshopping, and uploading photos from my recent trip to the Grand Canyon. Stunning photos, "like such as:"

You can see more HERE yet you should wait until I've gone through them all. I have, however, put up a little group of pics taken at one of our first souvenir pit-stops.

Souvenirs shops are terrible. Most of the stuff is Crap (capital C): cheesy, typical, made somewhere other than where the vacationer stands. But, comb through these places enough, and you can find some authentic gems. Case in point, these mugs and mug trees that I discovered in Moab, Utah.

The mugs, hand-glazed and available in any number of colors, are easily corralled on a their own little tree stand. They were Mad (capital M) expensive - this yellow set cost about $290 - but they were sweet, special, attractive.

Even Bamboo, who is the QUeen (capital QU) of spotting and eradicating worthless crap, loved 'em.

For these reasons, I, Cardboard, declare this a Design Boner.

I'm such a sucker for mugs though... when I have a kitchen of my own I plan to have multiple cupboards. : )
