Swizzle Sticks for the Gimlet Ghoul

Perhaps more suited to Halloween, Mardi Gras, or Dia de los Muertos, these cocktail stirrers from D. L. & Co. are nonetheless festively macabre.

This particular set is the Grand Guignol version of the original, sockets of which did not have beadily staring Swarovski crystal eyes.

Aside: A comforting thought. If you ever lose your seasonal compass, you need only to look for the appearance of Swarovski crystals on bottles of perfume, jars of face cream, and lifestyle objets décoratifs. Plus the accompanying triple price points.

$195.00 at Barney's

Jen: very. Hence comment about the crystals.

WB, there's a version w/o the Swarovski, but they aren't nearly so chic-macabre.
