Fair Share Fountain

Just saw this over at C&M, quite the thing to add some flair to your champagne toast, huh?

“6 champagne glasses, each one a bit smaller than the other, hand made out of Pyrex and each one has a tiny lip so that the champagne will flow over into the next smaller glass and all 6 together hold the content of one standard bottle!”

2 week lead time.

“Take Your Time” Table Runner

Such a clever way to keep the conversation going, this table runner has questions and answers that can be read from both ends of the table. It looks like the questions are more riddle-like than the getting-to-know-you variety, but hey, when you’re in a conversation rut, anything helps.

Made of 80% cotton, 20% Polyester, it is machine washable. Imported from The Netherlands.

Deception (Cup and Saucer) by chillichilly

This is a rather unique cup and saucer set- I like how the handle looks like part of a pair of scissors, and the fake shadow is interesting as well…

“what you see is not what you get. this cup and saucer set challenges our perception of what is right and false. the deceiving shadow forged on the saucer resonates the beauty and well-proportioned shape of the coffee cup.”

material : porcelain
size : 4.25 oz

InsideOut Martini Glass, Set of 2

The InsideOut Martini Glasses are available for presale- so now’s the time to put your name down in preparation for all your holiday entertaining (or gift-giving).

“..it creates a wonderful presentation and is a lot better to hold than balancing an overly wide glass filled to the rim on a thin stem…Besides the visual beauty, there is another extremely convincing argument: your drink simply doesn’t warm as fast as it would in a normal martini glass…”
