This Christmas season had 5 weekends which made it last extra long and brought new meaning to the saying... "too much of a good thing."
I'm just saying, that it feels good to put the holiday season behind me and get back to the business of living.
After taking down and packing away the Christmas decorations, I curled up with a few of my favorite magazines.
My interest was piqued when I came upon this gorgeous green malachite lamp finial by Hillary Thomas.
You see, several months ago I picked up a pair of vintage malachite clip on earrings, not to wear, but just because they were so beautiful.
I figured one day I would figure out something fun to do with them.
A pair of lamp finials is the perfect reincarnation for this cast off pair of earrings!
I'm off to shop the internet for a cheap pair of lamp finials that I can switch out for my unusually shaped malachite earrings.
I think they will look stunning on the vintage brass obelisk lamps in my living room which are in need of an elegant flourish.
A few more ideas that caught my attention...
I love the way split bamboo is used as crown moulding in this small upstairs landing and think it could work in our small Chinoiserie powder room.
