Thrift Find: 125-Peso Watercolor Painting

Christmas is just 23 days away, and I know most of us are cramming to check off all the items in our gift list.

One of the things I have been on a look-out for were stackable mugs. I’ve found a lot of stackable cups (especially those commonly used by hotels and catering companies), but I wanted mugs that could more than five sips of coffee or chocolate.
