    Those are hot!! I would def upgrade my kitchen around those – that is IF I had the budget! ;)

    • yakini says:

      That’s whats so cool about them – they’re not expensive at all!!! I may actually treat myself to them. They’d be fun to put out around the holidays. :-)

  3. A Mommy in the City says:

    These are fabulous! P.S. love the new site!

  4. cheerful says:

    that’s lovely. PinayMum – Mommy’s Life Around…wishing you a great week!

    those are goregous! i found some super cute salt and pepper shakers on etsy recently. still trying to decide if i need them or not. i live in thailand and although i still use salt and pepper pretty regularly (i’m from the states), my hubby (who’s thai) is more of a thai chili and fish sauce kinda guy. haha. but that doesn’t mean that i can’t have cute salt and pepper shakers, now does it?

    • yakini says:

      Ooooh, I say get them – esp. if they are the right price. Even if no one really uses them, they’ll look so lovely sitting on top the table and will be available for use “just in case.” :-)

  6. K. Rock says:

    I was wondering where you were! Love the new project.

    • yakini says:

      Yes girl, I’ve been laying low – focusing my energy into this (and a couple other fun things in the works). Now that this has officially “launched” I’d like to put more time back into the other 2… hopefully create a nice balance.

      Thank you!!!

    Just gorgeous!

    I love the new site! Congratulations it’s beautiful!

    • admin says:

      Thank you Patty! You helped inspired me, when you so confidently walked away from your popular “NYC Girl at Heart” and started from scratch!

      • Patty says:

        Thank you for those sweet words. I’m so glad you went with you gut feelings. You have a beautiful site here!

  14. Reno, the Biggest Little City says:

    Alas, there aren’t too many places around Reno where those would fit in.

  15. RenoTahoe says:

    Those are beautiful, but would be quite out of place on my table.

  17. AVCr8teur says:

    I feel like it should be next to caviar and wine as accessories.

  18. Heidi says:

    Are they dishwasher safe? (lol) I love them, but practicality would keep me from buying them.

  19. Maria @ LSS says:

    I’d love to have that. Happy WW.

    Mine’s here.

  20. ohkeeka says:

    I thought they were earrings before I read your post! I’m a little bit slow tonight, I guess. :)

  21. TheOzSys says:

    Now that would put some serious bling to dining :) Cool!

  23. Carol@simple_catholic says:

    At the risk of completely showing off my lack of snazzy-ness, I must confess that it took me a second before I realized what they were! The shiny-ness threw me off.

    Love them though. :)

  24. Sukhmandir Kaur says:

    They are pretty snazzy but not sure that those tiny openings would do the job as I love a generous sprinkling of course ground black pepper and rocky seasalt.

  25. GrammyMouseTails says:

    fancy smancy! so the dishes must be crystal right?

  26. NYSingleMom says:

    Love them – so fancy
