Thomas Paul Whale Platter

I have often shared my love of both whales (here, here, and here just to name a few) and Thomas Paul products (here) so I suppose it's no surprise that when I ran into this Thomas Paul Whale Platter that I fell deeply in love. Yes, it is true that I don't really have any need for another platter in my life, but this guy was just too cute to not make him a part of my kitchen. Plus, with little kids I'm starting to become more obsessed with cool melamine dishware that is appropriate for kids, but still good looking. I found him at a new store in Portsmouth, RI called Corey Farms (much more to come on that next week), but if that isn't exactly local to you it can also be easily be found online. I wish I were entertaining tonight so I could use it. I might just have to invite someone over for cocktails tonight.

Jill Rosenwald Union Jack Lamp

We know Jill Rosenwald for her amazing pottery featuring fabulous ikat and chevron designs, but now you can add her to her go-to source for the ever popular union jack look without having to cross the pond. It would be fabulous in a boy's room, office or den, and I love the accent ribbon on the shade. Available at

Obsessed: World Market's Josephine Desk

Now that I've officially been working from home for 15 months, I'm starting to think that a nice little home office would be rather helpful to keep me more organized. Chances are you've seen this Josephine desk by World Market in many of the greatest looking home offices in the blogosphere, and while I'm not really one to follow the crowd, I am completely obsessed with it. I'm going to have a real problem when it comes to deciding whether to get the white or the blue. I think you could lacquer just about anything and I would want it. But typically this stunning look isn't always so affordable. At merely $199 for this beauty, it's impossible to resist.

Twisting Koi Candelabra

If you want to make a statement in your living or dining room this Twisting Koi Candelabra from Anthropologie ought to do the trick. I just love the juxtaposition of all the fish and flowers against each other, and it holds six candles so it would be great as a centerpiece or on a sideboard or mantle. If you love the look, but the price is a little too steep for you ($598) then you can also enjoy the single Twisting Koi candle holder which is also quite lovely.

Glassy Baby Will Light Up Your Life

I've seen many colored votive holders in the past, but very few have rivaled the beauty of the Glassy Baby. Perhaps it is the fact that with nearly 100 colors available, you can find exactly the shade of blue you're looking for or perhaps it is the fact that it takes four glass blowers to make just one of these glasses that consists of three layers of glass. No matter what the reason, they are sure to provide plenty of smiles whether you use them for votives, as a bud vase, or even to sip on something. Of course, something that requires such care to make isn't going to come cheap. The Glassy Baby retails for $40. That's each. HOWEVER, one of my most favorite things about this company is that they rent these beauties out for your special event at $5 apiece. If you are looking for an alternative to your typical table setting, these sure would do the trick to add that extra something. Oh, and just to make it even better-I bet you didn't think that was possible-Glassy Baby also donates a portion of their proceeds to charity. Founder Lee Rhodes developed the Glassy Baby while battling lung cancer and is using her product to give back to people in need. Be sure to check out, and if you are in WA state or NYC, you can check out one of their stores too.
