3 Green Lamps to Light up Your Life

Pop Pendant Light by Mauricio Affonso
This innovative pendant is solely made out recycled soda can pull tabs, and when illuminated it creates a beautiful array of light beams and shadows.

Clothes Hanger Chandelier by Luis Teixeria
Luis Teixeira's elegant recycled chandeliers are composed of cast-off clothes hangers fanned out in a circular array. We love how each unique hanging lamp lights up with a sparkling gleam that rivals the finest crystal chandeliers. Love.

Cola Bottle Lamp by Sarah Turner
It's hard to believe that Sarah Turner's brilliant starburst pendant lamps start out as a bunch of plain plastic bottles! The UK-based designer sandblasts old coke bottles, carefully cuts them into ribbon-like shapes, and then assembles them into orbital lanterns. Beautiful.

Jazzy Snow Day

Lately in Northwest Arkansas it has been snowing a bunch!! Here are a few pictures of Jazz enjoying the weather in our neighborhood park. We are so lucky to have such wilderness just a short walk away!

Upcycled and Recycled

This unusual leather desk is made from "upcycled" suitcases! More power to the creative people of this world that can take un-used items and give them new life! 

Re-cycled! This rusty car hood has been transformed into a beautiful industrial table! I love the fact that what made this car undesirable in its first life (the rust and such) becomes than the most desired in its second life, the unique organic corrosive detail of this table gives a sense of character and unforeseen charm. Needless to say, any flaw can become fabulous if give the right attention.
