I've liked this "Favourite Things" pendant lamp from Chen Karlsson ever since it came out. It's in Inspiration Journal 2 (I now have five!) I like to consider different things to put inside it.
It would make holiday decorating so simple and fun, and a nice family tradition. If the hole were up higher it would make a cool fish tank - if you don't think too closely about the logistics and potential for electrocution.
And because no Casapinka post is complete without me making you feel like a glorious parent and person, in the past 24 hours, I've:
1. Had a child who went to bed with a tooth under her pillow and woke up with a tooth under her pillow. I was woken to tears and wails that the tooth fairy didn't come, and in a stupor reached into my brain for the "Three Night Rule" that the tooth fairy occasionally enacts, which fell like a lead balloon. Luckily, Husband found an envelope on the Barbie Dream House that had 15 Euros in it and a one dollar bill, the only US cash he had on him. "Juniorette's response while staring wonderingly at Daddy and scornfully at me: "Not only does the tooth fairy know we're going to Ireland this summer, this must mean that we're going to get OUR dream house, too!"
2. Had my oil changed, only to find that there was a mouse nest in the cabin air filter.
3. Discovered while going through the car wash that it wasn't the air conditioner that was leaking, but the brand new windshield from my $300 potty break (see end of this post). That's a lot of fun - finding a leak in the middle of the High Pressure, Applying Soap Now portion of the car wash. Furtively holding up one's Diet Coke can to catch the spray, because sitting there doing nothing seems like a quitter's way out.
