Been There Ornament – Louisiana 2

Starbucks Been There Ornament – Louisiana 2 introduces subtle changes to the existing release. The easiest way to tell two versions apart is to look at the group of three musical notes next to the tiny Starbucks coffee cup. The new version has all of the notes to the right of the cup, while the old version had one to the left and two to the right.

Other changes include:
– an additional musical note on the back of the mug;
– one of the mosquitos is gone and the other one changed the place (so two versus three in total now);
– two sets of flowers are removed;

Additionally, I am only seeing the “made in China” version of the new ornament, it can be identified by the glossy string.… Read more

Been There Ornament – Illinois 2

I was expecting the release of the Starbucks Been There Ornament Illinois 2 long time ago, since the bigger mug came out back in 2019.

Discovered in 1739 by French explorer M. de Lery, “Cave-In-Rock” stands as an iconic point of interest in Illinois. Carved over eons by the relentless flow of water, this natural limestone cave embodies a tangible link to the region’s frontier past.… Read more

Been There Marvel Ornament – Wakanda

It seems that Starbucks Been There Marvel Ornament Wakanda is out! It looks very similar to the Wakanda mug, at least the front of it. However, judging by the photo of the back of the ornament, certain elements are re-arranged or removed. In case you want to learn more about Wakanda and what inspired the Starbucks’ artists, I invite you to read this pretty long post that I made about the design of the full-sized sibling of this ornament.
