Lamp Love

I'm pretty sure the that I am the only one that is completely in love with this lamp, but I am.  My sweet friend Jen picked it up for me on a thrift store run, and I am smitten.  I just need to decide what to do with it.  The sweet 70's colors match my current decor, but the gold flecks could probably go :)  I like the shape of the shade, but it could use some updating...was hoping I could follow Jenny's DIY instructions for painting a shade...

Since buying these, I seem to have a new obsession with honeycomb lamps.  Most I have found since this one have been very expensive, though!

 It has a little crack at the bottom that doesn't bother me...but check out the gold flecks :)  genuine 70s, right?

Saw this pair last week in DC while out with fun!


I have been slightly obsessed with terrariums lately.  After being completely inspired by this brilliant booth at Brooklyn Flea, Twig Terrariums (you MUST check out their work), I came home and got busy.

I have always loved moss...and I attempted a terrarium with moss and rocks in early 2009.  It lasted for a while, but I over-watered it, probably suffocated it, and who knows what else.  In short, I botched it.

Since West Point boasts plenty of moss, pretty rocks, driftwood and pine cones, I figured I would use Mother Nature's gifts.  I have had these for over a month a few months now, and they seem to be doing well.  I sprinkle them with water every 4 days or so.... I have pretty much just left them alone...every once and a great while when I happen to be walking by with my glass of water, I may share a few drops with the terrariums.
