Gurgling Cod

August 26, 2008

I apologize for my lengthly break from posting but I’m back now, and in honor of the last burst of wedding season nuptials I have a few style thoughts I wanted to mention.

As a New England transplant I think I’m acutely aware of ultra-New England customs and objets, and one of my favorite things from the latter category are the mesmerizing “Gurgling Cod” pitchers that a few places sell.  If you’ve never seen one of these things in action you may be a bit nonplused.  These pitchers are pretty, but the fabulous thing about them is that they make the most lovely sound (a gurgle) when you pour liquids from them.  They are great for summery entertaining, whether you are serving ice water or Pims & lemonade.


They come in all colors and sizes, and I think they would be great New England bridal shower gifts.  Or, as I age and become more eccentric, I may end up doling them out as wedding gifts and *gasp* ignoring people’s registry!
