aa35352The Empire State Building may be the iconic symbol of the golden age or the New York skyline, but it is the Chrysler Building that has all the charm.

I love both buildings and all the great examples of art deco design on a grand scale. I have a collection of miniature buildings – mostly the Empire State and Chrysler Buildings (and Big Ben but that is a story for another time).

So you can image how thrilled I was to see this recently – a Chrysler Building lantern available from Fish Eddy.

“Celebrate your love for New York City with this one of a kind cast iron Chrysler Building lantern. Slightly smaller than the real building it looks great in any room. Makes a great gift.”

I love it!

I found these felt puppets (from Nepal ) and fell in love with their faces.
