i'd been looking for lamps for my office for what seemed like forever. i didn't want just any old lamps... some with character. that's when i came across a little jadite beauty on ebay. i loved the color, shape and fact that it was made in france. it cost a small fortune, but i paid the price and couldn't be happier. my handyman dad rewired it for me and i finally (after months of looking) found a shade for it. it now has a home next to my reading chair.
one lamp down, one to go. still needed one for my desk. i loved the art deco lamp from slofabulous but sadly, it was out of my budget. once again i turned to ebay, which did not disappoint. i found a lovely black and jade lamp made by Houzex. it had been rewired but needed a shade. found one at the lamp shade factory in trexlertown, pa. now i have a beautiful desk lamp to keep me company when i work late at night. :)

with easter just over a month away, i thought i'd do an feature on egg cups. i never really got into collecting these little holders, but i found three that i couldn't pass up. they are shaped like a chick and were produced by the french glass company, opalex. what i love most about them are the colors... pale pink, milk glass, and the perfect shade of turquoise. these little guys have a permanent home in my kitchen cabinet.
here are some other egg cups that are for sale in my etsy shop:

it's that time of the year for everything green. since green is my favorite color, i had no problem quickly putting together this list of etsy favs. hope you enjoy them too!
love the shape and color of this art deco clock (i have a cream colored one like this in my shop too) from moonstruckcottage
