Rosenthal Magic Flute Mini Vase

Rosenthal Magic Flute Mini Vase
This diminutive vase caught our eye in the recent issue of Town & Country magazine.  And we were surprised by the listed price - only $35!   Mind you it is only 4 1/2" high.   But that's part of what we like about it.   Perfect to hold a bloom on the vanity in our bathroom. 

We were even more surprised to find it on sale at Lord & Taylor for $14!  Every other store had it listed at $35 including Bloomingdales and Bergdorf Goodman.  And then we found a promotional code (WINTER) that gave us an additional 20 percent off.   Bringing the price down to around $11.

So we ordered 8 thinking they will make great gifts.   Or, perhaps, perfect for a dinner party for 8.  One vase at each place setting holding a single flower.  Perhaps we should buy in bulk and resell on ebay!   Our boat has come in and we are ready, so ready, to sail!

To get one, or more, for yourself visit the Lord and Taylor website.   And don't forget to enter the promo code during checkout.

Haters Gonna Hate

We're excited!  The new season of Downton Abbey starts tomorrow night.

We visited the Shop PBS website and found a number of their Downton Abbey t-shirts are on sale for $9.99 (regularly $25.00).  We then searched around and found a promotional code (CROSS25) that gave us an additional 25 percent off.  So they ended up being about $7.50.   Unable to pass up a good sale, we ordered 4 different ones and got free shipping.

Our favorite is Haters Gonna Hate featuring the villains everyone loves to hate--Thomas and O'Brien. A must-have for any Downton Abbey fan.

Tune in tomorrow for the start of season 4.
