We were a little sad not to be able to see the lunar eclipse on the solstice here in the Midwest, but imagine our delight to see our very own Aurinko tea light holders arrive in time to light on the darkest night of the year.  Thanks, Todd, for this wonderful addition to our home. They will be enjoyed for many years to come….

Sanna Annukka: Aurinko

Sanna Annukka‘s latest divine creation. Perfectly timed for the winter solstice. Even if it is just minutes at a time, we celebrate the return of aurinko to our skies.

Gorgeous Design Rocks


Despite liking rocking chairs just fine it has always seemed to me that for the most part they are not as attractive as their stationary brethren. Certainly, I have never been inspired to post about one before but this rocker designed by Reno Bonzo is just too damn sexy to ignore. Learn more about the Gaviota Rocker or purchase at the Bodie and Fou website. For instance, it won a Brazilian design award, is priced in British pounds and ships from France. That’s not just a chair it’s a world tour. The only problems I have with this rocker is that I have a house full of small rooms and no legitimate need for a rocking chair. The obvious solution being to move to a bigger house and have children. If that is not an option for you consider adopting some great grand parents.
