Dreaming of Snoopy

Snoopy mug
I found this 1958 Snoopy 'Sweet Treat Dreams' mug for 50c while rummaging at the dingy little op shop I sometimes refer to. It's made by Anchor Hocking Fire King from an ovenproof material similar to Pyrex (handy if I ever feel the urge to bake a mug-sized cake?). I did some research when I got home and found that these mugs are a bit of a collectors item and are especially popular in Japan. This one sells for around $25 on eBay while others like the Red Baron mug sell for upwards of $150 and even more than $400 for the rare orange version - how crazy is that! There's a matching bowl for this mug that I would love to find.

I should really stop referring to that op shop as the 'Dingy One' because I've found some great stuff there including more Snoopy-themed items that I'll be sharing in my next post! If you look closely at the photo you can see our pet flamingo statue in the background, keeping a watchful eye on our backyard :)


  1. Yay someone else like me! I leave the opshops with hands full of clothes, and always always always a silly old vase or broken photoframe or hilarious mug. You did well though as it is a collectors item! I love your dress in the previous post as well! x

  2. Well done.. I hope you dont sell it, its way to cute. I actually really like the style of it. Loving your blog :)

  3. Loving your blog! Looks like we have some common tastes.
