Tonight’s sunset over the Sandwich Range from Tamworth, NH – actual colors from my cheap camera…


DDRWhile browsing around the wonderful Motifs, a shop in the Old Port district of Portland, ME, a somewhat unique flask caught my eye. The flask was round and had an etching of a dog on it with the words “Hair of the Dog.” (See my snapshot below.)

It turns out the Hair of the Dog flask is from Izola, a purveyor of fine gifts items. In addition the Hair of the Dog flask, Izola offers this “Don’t Drink and Ride” flask with a bicycle motif and a large collection of other great flasks.

About the Flasks of Izola: “Living in New York City there are countless moments when a drink is necessary. Whether you’re on a broken down A Train or at an overcrowded rooftop party, a flask can be a lifesaver and is always a good conversation starter. Izola’s stainless steel flasks are available in either five-ounces or three-ounces and are engraved with eight different boisterous expressions that fit the drinking theme. As a time-honored accessory to men of all different cultures and social classes, the flask has proven itself to be a necessity of the times and we guarantee it’s a prime gift that fits any occasion.”

Indeed, flasks make great gifts – especially the kind of gift you give to yourself. Cheers!
