This lamp is so awesome. I saw it and thought “Genius! Why didn’t I think of that?!” Because my name’s not Kouichi Okamoto, that’s why. All you need is one of those corded light bulb fixture thingies and voila! Working lamp. I bet it glows a lovely red. It’s for sale at accessories purveyor Poketo (who I profiled last year).
I’ve long had a sweet spot for pop-open-and-clip paper honeycomb-style decorations. I remember we had a turkey for Thanksgiving and maybe a snowman for the holidays? They also come in pineapple (which I love), wedding bell and snowflake formations. Oooh, I wonder if I could make a skirt in the honeycomb paper style. I’d need someone to clip me in!
