Now that I own a home, I have been spending an inordinate amount of time online looking for cool octopus housewares. I came across these little gems on one of my favroite sites, UncommonGoods.com.
Item description: A modern interpretation of the classic mint julep cup, these whimsical black and white cups feature a bas relief octopi on each side. With a flared shape and detailed designs at the top and bottom, these sweet and sturdy stoneware cups are quite roomy as drinking glasses and will also be wonderful for holding toothbrushes, flowers, pencils or coins. Available in black or white. Designed in Brooklyn. Made in China. Sold individually. $20 each.
