I actually thought this little monkey holding a bowl was a bit scary at first. He definitely grew on me when I thought of him guarding the keys at a haunted house style Halloween Party or holding anything from mints to pocket change. It's a conversation piece for sure.
I really liked these initial mugs. The colors would go great for a casual fall or winter get together. I could totally see them full of hot apple cider or pumpkin spiced lattes on a brisk autumn evening. The font of the letters is like an old school typewriter. They could easily be worked into a theme for your next book club gathering or pop one into a care package for someone away at college.
