Ice Ice Baby

My grandma told me she had an ice bucket she was getting rid of and asked if I would like it. I said yes. Then this arrived:




















That's 100% of the purest plastic-made-to-look-like-wood available. When my parents brought it over my mom was laughing so hard she was crying. I thought it was an urn at first. But then my dad pointed out the matching cups:













Grandma, I love you so much but 1975 called and wants its ice bucket back.

God, it's so bad it's awesome. You are totally going to bust it out at the next party I bet. Even better, you should take it over to your sister's basement and let it keep company with the gold couch.

WHAT??!! That is SO cool!! I LOVE it, you have to use it, you HAVE to!! You know you want to bust it out in all of it's grapey glory at your next party. Serve grape Smirnoff to tie in the theme. Your Grama rocks.

I'm not sure there are words for those photos. Awful.

You will be writing a thank you note, won't you? Can't wait to hear what you write about how useful and beautiful the bucket and cups are.

Those tumblers are screaming for wine in the $3-4 range. maybe a nice box of "Chillable Red".

I think you are obligated to use this set at least once.

Maybe that's part of the "good china"?

i dunno, they seem pretty bad-ass to me. You can probably get a fortune for them on e-bay. but why would you sell such nice heirlooms?
