Keys to My Heart

You know, the problem with One Kings Lane is that it has gotten so confoundedly popular (man, am I kicking myself for telling everyone about it). I've got to get into the habit of breezing through first thing in the morning, because if I wait until lunch... disaster!
Things that I really, really need are sold out!


Godinger Key-Shaped Cocktail Stirrers that would have looked so posh in my vintage glassware... argh!
Also, the trouble with One Kings Lane is that once I've been tempted by a great deal, say, "12 perfectly quirky stirrers for $25," then buying "6 quirky stirrers for $25" elsewhere doesn't sound perfect at all. Which is funny, because the notion of having more than 6 people drinking in my tiny apartment at one time is fairly far-fetched. Still, it's the principle! 12 is better than 6!


Anyway. Real post coming tomorrow. For now I'm still being punished for taking a few days off of work (agh, the data-entry!), tomorrow I will show off the new toys I got for Christmas...

Iva- I know! I'm going to have to cross my fingers that they show up on OKL again, or I'll just have to get over my "full-price" phobia and buy a set elsewhere!

Thanks so much for stopping by :)

Beautiful -- I saw these and immediately thought, if I tie a little bow around one and string it on a long chain, think it would be OK as a necklace?? They would look beautiful in a small antique glass, sitting on a side table, like a sparkling bouquet. That is, when they're not swirling around a potent potable.

You are the fashion queen- if you do it, a new trend is born :) I wear a gold skeleton key on a long chain sometimes, but it's nowhere near as ornate as these are.

And you're reading my mind about the display potential. It's not often that I have a fancy beverage to stir, so I think they'd most often be gracing my "bar shelf" in a neat glass. I feel like I need to have the full dozen for this to work!
