Cluttercast: Cigar box

February 25th, 2009

This comes from the days when I used to cruise Ebay for hours– looking for ceramics or plates or stuff I could use in my mosaics.   I  was looking for the things I liked.   Fruits.  Vegetables.  Candy.  Handbags.  Shoes.  Candy.  

I found this line of tiny exquisite porcelain boxes that are absolutely perfect replicas of everything you can imagine.  Fruits.  Vegetables.  Candy.  Handbags. Shoes.  Candy.  

 Somehow this arrived along with the candy other boxes.  The box is less than two inches wide–it couldn’t even hold a cigar butt.   The cigars are less than an inch long and made of porcelain.  But I can still smell the smoke.

    This is a very cute and unique piece. Anyone that collects unusual things, like me, would enjoy it. I imagine someone that does this will come online and say they want it before long.

    I can’t wait to see what you put on here each day. I imagine that if I came to your home, it would look so much like mine. Each time you put something, I either would LOVE to have it for myself, or I already have it. When March comes and I try to start something similar to this in my local area, I will probably give away many things like you have. So funny to be giving away so many things alike.

    Good luck with today’s giveaway. I just know some nice person who has a need for this, will come along.

    Hi Darryle…Remember me?…I’ve been subscribing to “I Never Signed Up for This” and love it and stumbled here today…Go Beach High…Class of 67′!!

    Despite my many pleas, my husband is a committed cigar lover and smoker. He also is a collector of “wee” objects and I think he would love this. Since my kids were little, I collect gifts throughout the year to give to the family at the holidays. This is no small task as I have four children, and their father of course, and we celebrate both Hanukkah…8 nights as you know…and Christmas too. I’ve never been one to let a celebration pass us by. Even though the kids are grown and gone, I still can’t stop the insanity!! So now I’m sending gift filled boxes across the country not only for my children but for their significant others as well. It just seems to be mushrooming!!

    Anyway getting back to the porcelain cigar box, it would be the first gift (an ideal stocking stuffer) for the next holiday season. A perfect celebration of my husband’s addiction because he’s been so patient and generous with mine.

    My wonderful grandfather was a cigar smoker. He had a recliner and beside the recliner was his smoking stand. If you knew my grandfather and tried to draw a picture of him, you would have to include a cigar.
    He always gave me the paper around the cigars so I could pretend I had a ring on my finger and the cigar boxes to use for my marble, doll clothes or other little trinkets I collected. The smell of cigars even reminds me of my grandfather. Once when he was older he fell asleep in his chair and the cigar fell and then he had to buy a new recliner. Thankfully, he wasn’t hurt at all. I would love this cigar box to remind me of my grandfather!
