Pelican Rouge

So Months ago I saw these coffee cups at a troc and I really wanted them. How ever the guy said they would be 5 euros each. Actually I think they were for there break room - they were still in the cardboard box and half opened. Bummed cause that was more then I was willing to pay.

Then the 16th of November I was showing my friend Barb from England the Marrolles market...Yup the first box I saw from the corner was the coffee cups! I can't even tell you how excited I was - I think I may have scared Barb a little with how excited I was.  

Joe was in the US and when I talked to him I was very excited and said "guess what I bought today" I could hear the terror in his voice "I'm scared to know" but them it was all good when I said "the Pelican Rouge coffee cups!"

Here is a couple photos of my prized find!  

One reason I like them is they have dutch and french on them - very Belgium - and perfect treasure to take home. 
Bonus they had a tea mug - so come and visit me in LA and have a coffee or tea in a cool glass.

Well, I might just do that on one of my forays to Southern CA!
When is your departure date? And did you find a place in S'ta Clarita or thereabouts? Inquiring minds want to know . . .

Great, can we take that as an open invitation to stop in for coffee?

Cute cups,I really like the clear ones. You will need to enlarge your kitchen for more cupboard room at your house with all the finds you are bringing back from Europe. Mom
