Just enjoying a very lazy, very sunny Saturday afternoon, eating some Jimmy John's (extra mayo, yeah, that's right!), getting laundry done and catching up on my blog reading. I went over to ebay to look for some vintage champagne coupes. I've wanted a set for a long time and watching Mad Men has put me over the edge. Champagne saucers seem so sophisticated, festive, and carefree. But, I wonder, are they sort of pointless? I mean, they undoubtedly make it more difficult to drink champagne after all. Even if the flute keeps the bubbly more bubbly and less likely to spill (which is a key feature for some people...), aren't the coupes still a better choice because they are just that pretty?
What do you think about these? The gold rim is extremely Mad Men, yes? But is the stem oddly long?
Etched roses. I like these more than I would have thought. Very girly and fun!
Digging the silver.
BINGO. These are perfect, right? Chin chin, and happy weekend!
