Our spider friend seems anxious and worried that there may not be enough Halloween candy to go around this year. What do you think?
The hand painting lends you to notice the intricacies of the black bow-tie neck over a richly dotted orange and white ensemble.
What We Love About Them: The vintage polka-dot motif reminds me of something my Grandmother would have had in her home growing up in the midwest during the 50's, and I love that. Also, since there is a handle on both sides, my dad can use this mug comfortably (he's a lefty), and I love it for that, too! What a fun way to add some timeless nostalgia to your Halloween decor.
