An old fashioned concept with modern possibilities. As we saw with Amy's vintage paperweight collection (second to last thumbnail in the series), these prismatic creatures can be used for actually holding down papers once the windows are open this spring - OR for a bright, vibrant display of designs you love, just because. We even ran across the Paperweight Collectors Association online (PCA, who knew?!).
Whether vintage like Amy's, everyday like those from Parkside Papers or luxe like Lalique, we love the idea of living with any of these (clockwise from top left):
- Chrysis amber crystal by Lalique, ($don't know the price, but it won't be cheap)
- Amy Ruppel bird, $25
- Hearts by Lalique, ($pricey)
- MOE swirl, $25
