Photo of the week – me and Mom at Weeki Wachee back in December. All of the mermaids are topless! I was amused.

Home Gifts from Fishs Eddy

by Jamie Sanford on March 8, 2011

I am looking forward to getting back into some regular shopping and gift posts, and I’m starting out with a few items from, which I heard about from Lucky magazine.

Mini Hand

I have hooks on the wall in my bedroom for my necklaces and bracelets, and a little metal tree that I use for the majority of my rings.  However, if I put my everyday rings on the ring tree, I forget to wear them.  This 7.25″ mini hand would be perfect for storing my everyday rings between wearings.  This mini hand is a steal from Fishs Eddy at $5.95.

These glasses are perfect for when you’re having a small glass of juice or some water – or some wine, if you’re feeling French and rustic (I watched Jamie Oliver drink red wine out of a glass just like these earlier today).  Plus, why have plain glasses when you can have these Alice in Wonderland-themed ones instead?  The set of 4 Alice glasses is available from Fishs Eddy for $20.

I love a mermaid – check out my Christmas tree and you’ll see more than a few.  However, I don’t collect them in any other instance other than tree ornaments.  I bought a chubby mermaid a while back for my tree and fell in love with her, and started picking up mermaids.  Anyway, I could definitely get behind adding another cute mermaid into my home, and this cast iron bottle opener is a perfect option for that.  Plus, she’s brunette and I don’t see enough brown-haired mermaids.  The mermaid cast iron bottle opener can be purchased from Fishs Eddy for $18.95.

Mermaid Cuff Bracelet

by Jamie Sanford on August 19, 2010

Day 4 of sale items from Uncommon Goods.

Another one of the things I respond to is mermaids. So, when I saw this – it was going to be on the site.

This is not for everyone, mermaid bracelets just don’t work all of the time.

Here’s the description:

Hand cast from molds of vintage swizzle sticks, these cuffs by artist Nina Dinoff are dreamy, graceful and serene, just like the elusive mermaid. Available in sterling silver-plated and 18 karat gold-plated brass. Handmade in Brooklyn.

Swizzle sticks were invented in the ’30s, but were quite popular from the ’40s through the ’70s as a means of advertising for hotels, restaurants and airlines.

These bracelets have been discontinued, and are currently on sale for 50% off.  You can pick up both the silver and the gold for $34.99 on Uncommon Goods.
