loving autumnal tortoise shell

(A nice, simple shape from Bellacor.)

I've always loved round tortoise-shell spectacles from the 'fifties... Here are some retro items that would make terrific hostess gifts-- or maybe a little present for yourself one of these cold November days!

(Mexican recycled glass tumblers, from 2kh). I'm tempted to give a couple sets of these as a wedding gift to a good friend of mine. They would be great multitaskers- bud vases, toothbrush holders, etc.)

(The real deal: vintage Italian glass tumblers from the 'seventies, with a dimple impress on each. Yay for ebay!)

And my personal favorite...
Found here.

This is beautiful, but check out the 1934 Parker in chinese red; one of the most classic fountain pen designs of all time!
