Christmas shopping can be such a bich.

In my Sunday morning eBay perusals I discovered the perfect Christmas present for my husband to give me. It's Elsa Peretti* gold brooches, each one a letter of the alphabet.



They would look SO CUTE on a black sweater for the holidays! And of course, buying them on eBay means he wouldn't have to pay retail, so I'd be saving That Stud Muffin I Married some money.



I'll bet Badger would like them, and if only they came in white gold, Joke could get them for That Fabulous Babe he married.Unfortunately, there's a letter missing.

And call me a bitch about spelling, but I believe in dotting the "i"s and crossing the "t"s.




After all, if I'm going to walk around wearing an 18K gold sign from Tiffany's--in a kind of post-modern twist on the whole Laverne and Shirley giant "L" thing, filtered through a ghetto-fabulous blingbling vibe--I think I owe it to my public to spell correctly.

Damn! I guess I'm going to have to find something else for my husband to buy for me.

* Thanks and a tip of the hat to Blackbird for knowing it was Elsa Peretti and not Paloma Picasso, as previously stated.

  2. Paloma Picasso? or Elsa Peretti?
    Elsa makes those letters for Tiffany and she does them in silver too...
