So when life overall is pretty much on one so-so level, it’s nice and refreshing when something actually catches your attention. Today, for me, it’s these absolutely charming chandeliers made from spoons and teacups from Cake Vintage. Maybe charming isn’t the perfect word…amazing? whimsical? genius? Well, they’re all of these things, and I just adore them!
Just a few of my favorite scenes from my apartment. with a new couch, new TV, Christmas gifts out and some treats from Made By Girl…I’m loving my little girly studio. What do you think?

I love fishs. (yes I spelled that right…keep reading)
For my birthday last month, I spent the day in NYC with my parents. We went out for a late lunch/early dinner at Pipa, a great Spanish tapas restaurant before seeing Billy Elliot (ah, fell in love!). The sangria and coquettes were excellent, but so was the decor. Maybe a hundred ornate chandeliers hung from the ceiling, which made sense because it was connected to ABC Carpet & Home. My trip there actually deserves it’s own post because seriously, it was like a rite of passage going there for the first time. (Don’t know how that never happened before!) Fell in love with so many things including a fabulous Maleline Weinrib rug I *must* own one day – that also deserves a post of its own.
My point? I also visited Fishs Eddy for the first time – which must be a NYC favorite and also a rite of passage. I fell in love with this store for its simple kitchen ware and whimsical details. Seriously, it is fantastic. And cheap. And you must go if you love to cook or host. (Bonus points if you live in a teeny tiny Brooklyn apartment.)
I seriously want everything in this store, but here are a few of my favorites…
Have you been to Fishs Eddy? Know any other stores that will make me this happy?
How cute are these Jonathan Adler salt and pepper shakers that I got for my birthday from my boyfriend. I have a thing for whales and my round white tabletop was missing both s&p shakers and something whimsical. He really can hit the nail on the head with the right gifts, huh?
(Can also be found at tabletop in DC along with so many other great kitchen finds)
