The past couple weeks have been a blur! Shopping, working, listings, working, shipping, working, shopping, and more working! As much as I love the holidays, I’m really looking forward to this week being over and starting 2012! 🙂
Although many presents were opened yesterday morning, I’m patiently awaiting for two more to arrive. First off is an invaluable resource for corkscrew addicts. SCReWbase and Corkscrew Collector 8 software should arrive any day now! I’m super excited to get these programs and expand my knowledge base of corkscrews.
The second present isn’t technically a present, but seeing as it was snatched up on Christmas morning, I’m calling it a present from the Corkscrew Gods to me via an eBay BIN. 🙂
A lovely and quite rare piece. It’s a German pocket folding piece, much like that of the lady legs style. Obviously no striped stockings here, but solid green celluloid scales. I did not ever recall seeing one like it before, but actually I had. Last week Karl-Heinz Humpert of Germany had the very piece in his Best 6 of 2011.
Maybe we should extend 2011 for a few more weeks….
