    I love that pendant light! It’s so ethereal!

    Thanks for all these great guides. I linked to you in my blog today as a recommendation to my readers :)

  2. Anyone who pays $50 for that camera is crazy. You can find an original (not a remake) on Ebay or at garage sales anywhere from $5 to $20

  3. i walked by rose & radish the other day and saw those log bowls- i love love love them

    You can buy the garland lamp for about $34 at habitat (http://www.habitat.net/) direct link: http://www.habitat.co.uk/fcp/product/browse/Pendant/979959 (But I’m not sure, if it’s possible to order the lamp … but $90 are too expensive)
    Thanks for the three nice guides!

  5. kati says:

    These are great ideas – I have a number of them myself or have purchased for others. :)

  6. Valerie says:

    If you’re looking for agate coasters, there ‘s a new geode store (?) called Stoned, on 5th Avenue in Park Slope, that sells them for $8-10 depending on the size.

  7. The people at MOMA may know something about art, but not about birds. The “birdhouse” is clearly a birdfeeder and couldn’t be lived in by a bird, BUT it IS a pretty birdfeeder.

  8. I have to have that jewelry tree! It is so cute!

  9. Sabina says:

    great gift items – i especially love the nest plate!

  10. sosser says:

    great gift guides, grace! loving the links :)

  11. Greer says:

    Love that clock. It’s surprisingly difficult to find a well-designed alarm clock. Thank you Grace!

  12. Swistle says:

    I love the bird nest plate. I saw those sold individually on ThreePotatoFour, which is nice if you don’t need a whole set of four.

  13. Rachel says:

    They have the Inside Out Champagne Glasses at yousaytomayto.com for just $60!

  14. imedagoze says:

    hey, I didn’t know that you like Diana+ camera, too. I was in a dilemma choosing between Diana+ or Holga around a month ago, but at the end I chose Holga. But Diana+ is still on my list though, perhaps next year. :)
