Walk the Walk

A good vase looks lovely with flowers in it. A great one looks superfantastic whether or not there are flowers in it. Take, for instance, The Catwalk Vase by Kosta Boda:

Kosta Boda Catwalk Vase with its graceful shape and charming image of a lady’s calves and feet, it’s a delightful piece for your shelf or coffee table or desk all on its own. Filled with a spray of delicate flowers, it takes on a charming yet surrealistic quality any Dali or Man Ray fan would find irresistible.

It’s handcrafted of  lead-free glass in Sweden by designer Kjell Engman, and comes in a gift box just in case you can bear to give it away. Me? I think I would stick a bow on the box, leave it for myself somewhere, and then surprise myself with a lovely gift.

Then again, at this price, I might get generous enough to share a second one with a very, very good friend. You see, the retail price for the piece is $200.00, but right now Amazon has it for just $129.50. That’s a savings of more than $70.00!

But wait! There’s more! For a limited time, if you purchase $50.00 or more of Home and Garden products from Amazon, you can get a free one-year subscription to your choice of: GQ, SELF, Conde Nast Traveler,  or Architectural Digest. See site for details and restrictions.

You know, you could always get the vase for yourself and the magazine subscription for a friend. I’m just saying.

Keep Up With Trends Without Going Broke

Research is important to any endeavor, including staying on top of the latest fashion trends. If you don’t know what’s in, how can you keep up? The good news is, there are bargains out there even on fashion magazines.

Harper's Bazaar Magazine

MagazineCity.com has a year’s subscription to Harper’s Bazaar for just $10.00. That’s a whopping 80% off the newsstand price of $47.88!

Remember, knowledge is priceless, but that doesn’t mean it’s smart to go broke getting it.
