A distinct trait of the city are towering buildings lit up at night. This genius pendant wraps an LED light bulb with a miniature city scape. The artist is David Graas from the Netherlands. Lighting up home decor isn’t just for show.  He says, “Just like the penguins in the Antarctic huddle to survive the extreme cold during the winter time also people have taken on huddling as a strategy for survival. The mega city, despite its many problems, seems to be our destined habitat now that resources are becoming scarce…also holds the key to a sustainable future with its concentration of information, technology and talent”.

This 3-D lamp shade is certain to become a conversation piece in your home. It is a totally hip way to communicate adoration for your city. Proudly display it surprising guests in your foyer ceiling or use the floor base to bring a sophisticated edge to an office space. Here you can buy the pendant and here the floor version

From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she's taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it's a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
