Robert Louis Stevenson said, "Wine is bottled poetry." In that case, how would you open your book of verse? I'd choose one of these whimsical silver bottle openers!* Aren't they pretty? A few nights ago, I realized I don't have a properly functioning bottle opener. I have a thing pretending to be a bottle opener, but if you use it, you'll see that it's really a useless piece of junk taking up space in a drawer. So I'm not being frivolous. I really need a one of these, y'all!
I go crazy over typical household objects made to look like much prettier things.** Bottle openers are fine, but bottle openers that look like skulls, mermaids and tortoises are clearly better. Which one is your favorite? I can't decide between the key, the feather, and the skull.
And can you guess which of these is a très cher Oscar de la Renta piece that costs $95.00 at Bloomingdale's?
* Technically, wine requires a corkscrew, not a bottle opener. But the quotes about beer aren't nearly as classy!
** Let's not even talk about that one week when I went temporarily insane for figural soup tureens and spent hours ogling them online, okay? That was kind of weird.
