Lisa and Nikki's Friday Finds!

Hi Friends:

What has inspired and delighted us this week? Here they are - the sights, sounds, tastes and one-of-a-kinds we loved!
Vintage alabaster lamps! We think they provide sculptural interest and add elegance to any room.
Say it with framed flash cards! We often come across boxes of vintage flash cards and pick through looking for just the right word or words to express a meaningful sentiment. Simply frame and you have a great gift or decor piece. This one from EyeSpyPix on Etsy is just charming.
Another favorite gift from the holiday - a flower (Mum) brooch made from a tie my husband wore back in the day. Klosti reTIEd Blooms hand stitches each petal "to create a lightweight accessory that highlights the beautiful color and fabric of the original necktie. One entire necktie is used for each brooch and the original brand/label is stitched to the back." What a wonderful way to hold close the special man in your life. Find her on Etsy by clicking the link above.
You can buy cacao pods! With Valentine's Day just around the corner, we thought you should know where chocolate comes from. These pods grow on the Theobroma tree and contain the seeds/beans used to make chocolate. Take a look at this explanation from Live Live & Organic and share it with the children in your life.  

This week saw the release of High Hopes, a new album from Bruce Springsteen. The album features original and cover songs that had been recorded live over the years. This fan couldn't be happier to see another album from him. I love his heartland rock and Americana sentiments and am determined to get Nikki to a live concert! What's your favorite song by "the boss"? 

Next week Georgia's is all about Valentine's Day. Until then, have a great weekend everyone!
