Special Bottle Openers For the Classiest Bar Carts. Or, Mundane Objects that Aren't.

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!

Figural Bottle Openers

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.
