Whisk Lamp

I've always loved whisks and other interesting kitchen items.  That's part of why I love this chandelier!!  I also love the simplicity and the intricate shadows it casts.  And the thought that I could possibly make it myself...

The actual product is the Embolada Wall Lamp by Lucas Lacaz Ruiz.  The link will take you to a Studio Marcel Teixeira page which has all sorts of interesting lighting images, among other things.


I took piano lessons for 11 years of my life before starting university and becoming busy with other things.  I was lucky enough to attend the graduation recital of a good friend of mine from high school.  She plays the piano and is an amazing musician; she is such an inspiration.

Goal: Regain my passion for piano.
Step 1: Get an electric keyboard!  I've already put it on my birthday list, and have set a decent amount of money to buy one myself.
