The stockings are hung on the chimney And the presents are under the tree And mama's in the kitchen making some herbal tea The windows are covered with frost The candles are all alight But as I wander through this quiet house Something just doesn't seem right You see, every year the neighbors bring us A Swiss Colony beef log But the neighbors aren't around There's no beef log to be found this year Christmas isn't Christmas Without a Swiss Colony beef log Without those cheeses and meats I don't know how I'll get along

I take old Starbucks Drink Cups and turn them into Lamps
The warm panels are made from melting down old Starbucks drink cups, but it looks and feels like mica or some organic material. The wood in the lampshade and base is pulled from our 100 year old house in Astoria Oregon during a remodel, and it all comes together for a beautiful, classic look.

the world... nutty.
