Dream House Napkin Holder


I decided tonight that we needed a napkin holder. But something vintage. And kind of interesting. So I searched Ebay and found this dream house holder. Why is it that when I saw it I thought I MUST HAVE THAT. I MUST! And now that I've won it I look at the picture and go...meh. Not so much.

I think it's adorable! Maybe you could use it at Christmas, the colors sure would work.

It is so cute!! But I agree with the other Katrina, the colors are very Christmas-y.

I think it is cute too, and not necessarily Christmasey. Red is good year round. It seems like it encourages spare use of napkins since only a few will fit into the napkin slot.

I've done that before!! If you decide you can't like it, you can always make a ring out of it and sell it on etsy :)

Okay--you say you 'decided tonight', and it also 'closed tonight'. You probably got caught up in the "I have to snatch it NOW without thinking about it!!!" mode. Also, you probably got snared by the 'original box' (that always gets me, anyway.) Oh well... It IS a napkin holder. And vintage. And kinda interesting.

Thanks all! I go back and forth. In a bad moment I think it looks a little too Pee Wee's playhouse. But as IAMSUSIE pointed out - it does motivate one to use paper prudently.

I don't think it's Christmasy. I think it's fucking awesome. It's like the kind of thing you'd see at your grandma's house and you'd totally always want to play with it but she wouldn't let you because "it's not a toy" but in your mind you make up whole stories about the unhappy couple who live there and one day one of them murders the other one and buries the head in one of the shrubs and then later your grandma dies and you're all "YES! FINALLY I GET TO PLAY WITH THE NAPKIN HOLDER!" and then you realize it's kind of boring and you're all disappointed but suddenly your kids want to play with it and you're all "It's not a toy. It's a napkin holder" but you really just do it because you're know your protecting them from knowing it's really a shitty kind of toy and better played with in your imagination and then you think that maybe that's why your grandma did the same to you in the first place.

Aw...thanks, grandma.
