You Are Here Ornament – Scotland

It was just yesterday that I wondered if there were any new releases on Friday, as it usually happens, and voila, someone reveals a picture of You Are Here Ornament – Scotland today. Here’s the link to the bigger mug for comparison.
“Nessie”, Loch Ness Monster, is still there as an essential part of the local folklore.
I would also like to mention the Great Highland bagpipe on the other side of the mug. Interesting enough, while when we think of bagpipe, we remember Scotland, it came from Spain in the 15th century.… Read more

You Are Here – Ireland

What a pleasant Friday release from Starbucks! As per increasing collectors’ demand, You Are Here – Ireland mug is finally here. Obviously featuring:
– Shamrock – the national flower of Ireland. St Patrick used the shamrock’s three leaves to explain the Holy Trinity to the pagans during his mission of Christianizing Ireland. Shamrock is also a symbol of luck, mainly if it has four leaves. It was also an important symbol to the ancient Irish druids who believed that everything important in the world comes in threes, like the three dominions of earth, sky, and sea, as an example.… Read more

On a similar note, it is always a good idea to call the store in advance to check the availability of mugs and ornaments.… Read more
