Searching For My Lost Shaker of Salt

Oh the weather outside is frightful…and that makes me dream lazy dreams of warm weather and the parties it would be fun to throw in them. And of course that makes me think of cool drinks based around a lot of ice.

Margaritaville King of Frozen Concoction Maker Enter the Margaritaville King of Frozen Concoction Maker. This Cerberus of the frozen drink world has six automated settings: Ritas, Daiquiris, Coladas, Mojitos, Slides, and Smoothies, as well as three lightweight blending jars. 700 watts of power will assure the best blended frozen drinks in the neighborhood.

What’s that you ask? The price? Why let a silly little thing like that stand in your way?

Crystal Clarity

Every once in a while a deal comes along that just makes you see more clearly how good shopping for deals on the internet can be. Today, I have one of them for you.

Crystal Cake Stand You see that cake stand? Pretty, isn’t it? I think it’s quite lovely and dignified. It would work for any occasion from a birthday party to a bridal tea to the finale of your dinner for the boss.

How much would you pay for it? Well, the manufacturers want you to pay $140.00 for the 12″ round, 5.5″ tall hand washable crystal beauty. But you’re not going to pay that much, no siree!

You’re going to head straight for Horchow where it’s on two incredible sales at once. You see, this lovely stand got added to the Special  Value list, where the price got knocked down to just $69.90. Now that’s a good deal. But wait, there’s more! If you order before 12/20, you’ll find it’s being featured as a weekly special, bringing the price tag down to a measly $48.90!

But wait, it gets better still! Now through 12/17 (that’s just one more day, folks),  everything on the entire site is on sale  25% – 30% off plus free shipping with code 1DAYDEC!

So hurry on down, because you don’t want to miss deals like this. Santa might put you on his naughty list for that. Twistie certainly will.

Vibrant Versace or Chocolate Consolation

You can put flowers in any vase. They’ll look great, and they’ll smell good. But why put your flowers in any old vase when you can put them in this:

Versace La Mer Vase This is the La Mer vase by Versace. It’s porcelain painted with a fun mix of classic aquatic images, such as coral branches and golden shells. It stands 7″ high to hold a wide variety of blooms, or to simply be superfantastic in its empty state.

If you want it as much as I do, you’ll be delighted to know it’s on sale at Saks Fifth Ave. Regularly priced at $268.00, it’s currently selling for just $201.00. You can even get free shipping with the code SAKSSHIP9.

Of course, if the year has been financially unfortunate for you, you still may not be able to afford the lovely Versace vase. In that case, may I offer up this second delightful deal from Saks?

Chocolate Shoe and Purse After all, what woman doesn’t feel better with a stylish set of matching shoes and purse? And what woman wouldn’t feel even better if they’re made of chocolate? At that point, even if you don’t care about matching shoes and purses, it still appeals.

Regularly priced at $52.00, they’ve been marked down to just $32.00 for the season.

Of course, there’s nothing to stop you getting both, if you like.

I’ll Have a (Wedgewood) Blue Christmas

The best time of the year to buy holiday ornaments is usually about three days after that particular holiday has passed. The prices have come down ridiculously and everyone is sick of looking at the favored motifs, be they hearts or holly.

Right now, though, would be a great time to head over to Amazon.com and check out their huge collection of Christmas ornaments if your tree is threatening to look a tidge on the bare side. Whether you want classic icicles and candy canes, an ode to your favorite movie or football team, or something to commemorate your first year of marriage or the addition of a pair of tiny feet to your love nest, there’s something to fit both your needs and your budget.

Twistie’s pick? I do love a good classic and blue matches my eyes, so I have to go for this:

Wedgewood Teacup Ornament See? It’s a pretty Wedgewood teacup and saucer! There’s even a matching teapot ornament.

Best of all, it’s on sale. The regular price might be $43.00, but right now it’s just $38.67, and it qualifies for free Super Saver shipping.

Santa, baby, you can put this under my tree anytime you like.

This Little Light of (Hopefully!) Mine

Pretty candlesticks are always a graceful addition to any decor, even if you never light a single candle. These handsome acanthus leaf-design candle holders, for instance, shine brightly without being lit:

Dana Candlesticks They’re old-world classic design is brought up to date by being finished in a distressed, sandy stone color with a rough gray wash. The white candles shown are even included!

Whether you use them to illuminate your dinner table or simply grace your sideboard or coffee table, they are sure to be admired on a regular basis.

Of course you’ll glow so brightly over the price that you may not ever need to light the candles. The suggested retail price is $273.00, but you can get them for a lot less at Bellacor. They normally carry them for just $243.00, which is a lot better. Right now, though, you can get the pair for a mere $141.00!

Oh, and remember that you can get free shipping on orders from Bellacor of $75.00 or more.

I Love Lemon!

Lemon quartz, that is.

I love things that sparkle, and I love color, and I love to put sparkly things in bright colors on me. You can see, then, why I went and fell in love with this charming Peridot and Lemon Quartz Pendant:

Lemon Quartz and Peridot Pendant Four carats of pretty sparkles set in white gold and strung on an 18″ chain add up to one delightful piece of jewelry. Whether you’re buying for yourself or looking for the perfect gift for someone you love, you couldn’t go far wrong with this.

The price is nearly as pretty as the necklace itself. The recommended retail is $500.00, but you won’t be paying anywhere near that much. You’re going to head over to UltraDiamonds.com. They normally carry this lovely piece for $269.99, which is a great price. But right now it’s marked all the way down to just $229.00! That’s well under half the price for all the pretty.

Oh, and for a limited time, you can get free shipping on any order over $50.00. Nice.

Remember, lemon quartz doesn’t have to be a lemon of a deal.

You’ll find goodies under fifteen dollars and others over two hundred.

Take a Swirl

Do you need the perfect accent for a room? Would a handblown glass vase be what that coffee table or shelf needs to make it perfect? Are you on a budget? Well, I’ve got the perfect deal for you!

Kelly Swirl Vase This beauty is the Kelly vase. Swirls of emerald green, cornflower blue, and lilac make an elegant and compelling statement. It stands 18″ tall by 6 1/2″ wide, and is designed for dry arrangements only. Me? I would just display it as is. Why gild this lily?

As for the icing on the cake, well, it’s a heck of a deal. The suggested retail price is $98.00, but we can do better than that. Bellacor usually carries it for  just $81.00, which is a serious improvement.Right now, though, Bellacor has it on a special overstock deal for a mere $33.00!

Cecilia’s Not Breaking My Heart

In fact, if the Cecilia in question is this one by Lauren Merkin, she’s giving me all kinds of confidence, baby.

Lauren Merkin Cecilia Purse That’s soft, supple buffalo leather, available in your choice of brown (shown) or navy. As much as I love blue, I’ve fallen madly in love with this elegant color. I’m also loving the braided shoulder strap and subtle pleated detailing. There’s a zip closure to the bag for security, too.

Normally, all this would set you back about $575.00, but we don’t deal in ‘normally’ here at the Basement. Right now this gorgeous purse is on sale at Neiman Marcus for just $403.00! That’s an extra $172.00 in your pocket for other pretties.

Oh, and when you’re checking out the site, don’t forget to type in code SHOPNM for free shipping on any size order. But hurry! The deal is only good until the witching hour strikes on November 17.
