On the eleventh day of Christmas Daily Delights, I give to thee…ELEVEN PIPERS PIPING! (And: TEN LORDS-A-LEAPING, NINE LADIES DANCING, EIGHT MAIDS-A-MILKING, SEVEN SWANS-A-SWIMMING, SIX GEESE-A-LAYING, FIIIIIIVVVEEEEE GOOLLLDEENNNNN RIIIIINNNGSSSS, FOUR CALLING BIRDS, THREE FRENCH HENS, TWO TURTLE DOVES AND A PARTRIDGE IN A PEAR TREEEEE!)
Clockwise from top left: Uncle Rutherford Comes for a Visit Print by Matte Stephens, Pipe Puffing Puppies, Ceci N’est Pas Une Pipe Plastique Shopping/Library Bag, Pipe Match Strike, Artisan Scented Candle in Pipe, 1910 Postcard Bubbles, Pipe-Smoking Rabbit iPhone Case, Sherlock Hound 11 x 14 Matted Photograph , Parakeet Pipe Luddite Pillow by Thomas Paul, Hand Painted Mirror – Smoking Gentleman’s Pipe.
After my tough time scrounging up ten lords-a-leaping, I decided to pretty much ignore the real interpretation of the pipers piping lyric, and go with smoking pipe-related wares. It’s not that I condone smoking, so, no real pipes here, please. But there’s something about the design that has a comforting vintage whimsy, much like my favorite moustache-themed gear. Also, I’m a huge Sherlock Holmes fan, so these picks are elementary, my dear Watson.
