You Are Here Ornament – Switzerland

Here is the second mini mug from the recent weekend release. Starbucks You Are Here Ornament Switzerland is a colorful representative of this adorable series and has everything this country is famous for: cheese, chocolate, watch, lakes, and mountains. And for the latter, designers specifically depicted the Matterhorn, a pyramidal peak between Italy and Switzerland. The four steep faces, rising above the surrounding glaciers, face the four compass points and are split by the Hörnli, Furggen, Leone/Lion, and Zmutt ridges. As for the bear (on the back of the mug), this is probably related to Bern, “city of Bears”.… Read more

You Are Here Ornament – Austria

It has been a while since the last YAH ornament has been added here. I sincerely believed that Starbucks will be releasing one ornament every Friday. Unfortunately, this didn’t happen, and as an excuse, our beloved company has delivered two minis in one shot last weekend. You Are Here Ornament Austria is one of those. It comes with the blue string and has the same color inside, similar to the bigger mug, Austria YAH. As a reminder, there was also a limited edition ornament for this country.… Read more

Been There Ornament – Michigan 2

Starbucks Been There Ornament Michigan v2 is finally here and I have to mention, that the bigger version of updated Michigan mug was spotted almost 3 months ago. As a reminder, the only change, the new mug is introducing, is “Winter Water Wonderland” slogan being replaced with “Water Winter Wonderland”. And as I’ve suggested earlier, I consider this a fix and not just a revision, since there was, obviously, the wrong motto used for v1.… Read more

You Are Here Ornament – Phuket

Similar to two Thailand YAHs coming out together, there are also two minis in the batch. Starbucks You Are Here Ornament Phuket is accompanying Pattaya and I believe will be available in stores together with the latter (somewhere in April). The ornament has the navy string, and as you can see, it is of the regular shape. Not sure what I am talking about? Just compare it to the string used for Thailand YAH Ornament, which was the only mini with this type of string (flat ribbon, instead of rope).… Read more

You Are Here Ornament – Cyprus

Starbucks You Are Here Ornament – Cyprus is a very nice looking mini mug with the blue being the most used color. The string is also light blue. And it’s no wonder, because blue and white are the national colors of Cyprus, which you can find everywhere on the island: from the national flag to multiple white houses with blue rooftops along the coast.
The history of Cyprus, recorded through archaeological finds, myths and later written history, can be traced through 9,000 years.… Read more

You Are Here Ornament – Greece

Here’s Starbucks You Are Here Ornament Greece which is a copy of the bigger mug, just smaller and with the string, which is one of the shades of green (the avocado or fern green). These are some elements from the mug: sun, mountains, olive tree, Temple of Apollo (Ancient Corinth). The last, but not the least is the amphora – Achilles slaying Penthesilea, signed by Exekias, c. 530 BCE. It is now stored in the British Museum, London.
As a reminder, there was also the Christmas Edition of the full-size mug.… Read more
