So I've been a bad blogger! I swear I make a million mental Post-its of post ideas all day long and then I get home and what do I do? Dither and dilly and dally and then order Indian food from that place in my old neighborhood that won't deliver anymore and go and pick it up, get back on the subway and then they call when I'm IN THE STATION to tell me they gave me the wrong order! Are you crying for me yet, Argentina? Oh and I had lovely Easter weekend with Aunt Pat. How've y'all been?
Anyhoooooo I saw these in a catalog the other day and they sorta prove a theory: useless stuff is even CUTER when made en miniature:
No, the top isn't one of those pretty lacquered boxes from Plantation Home, it's a business card holder from Cambria Cove, online ladyporium. How quaint. The catalog looks like what Girl Scouts in Orange County would sell instead of cookies. Next are red and black patent leather sunglasses cases? For a preemie, maybe. They're 3 inches long! "Just the right size for holding earrings, stamps, mints, or other small items that get lost in your purse" they say. Like my last shred of financial prudence now that my taxes are paid?
Don't get me wrong I'm a Dum Dum Sucker for stuff like this. Is it 40-dollars-cute? Maybe not, but I gotta hand it to CC for trying.
