A Gift Guide From Someone Who Knows How

And today, I’m going to send you to Verhext’s blog, who has put together a gift guide for her Fancy Friend(s). Let’s pretend that’s us, shall we? When you arrive, this is what you will find, links and all. She’s one of those people you discover on the Internet and think, well, she’s got an eye, that’s for dang sure. (You may have more sense than to use terms like dang sure, of course.)

Enjoy. Scottish Breakfast is calling.

    I checked out her blog – yep, I would say ‘dang sure’ she’s got an eye :-)

    The mood I’m in this morning, “dang sure” would be polite.

    I love her list (Sea Salt Caramel Truffles!! *cue Homer Simpson drool*), but I’m still trying to figure out what purpose the red leather tassel serves.

    @Jan’s Sushi Bar,

    You attach the tassel to your handbag. Or you could use it as a keyring, or (most usefully, I think) to add grip to a fiddly zip on a small purse or makeup bag.

    I’ve long been a lurker on her site! Tamera’s inspirations are fresh and unique. Not the same old, everyone’s doing it, stuff. Bravo for sending people her way Lisa!!

    Jan, you bit me to that red leather tassel… but it sure is pretty, and probably a bargain…:)

    um… we have a problem with “dang” ?! The Texas version of “indeed” ?

    Taylor’s of Harrogate make the best tea. And I would love those gloves, or the bakelite champagne stopper. Otherwise, though, this seems a bit gifty to me. Give me a good novel or theatre tickets any day!

    Can’t go wrong with Smythson. Pricey, but within reach and those are the things one should pay good money for.

    @GSL, What do you spend your “bad money” on? Just curious. ;)
