I was looking at New York Spaces yesterday at the same place I spend every Wednesday. If you read my blogs then I don't need to get into detail where I was. Side note: I only have two more left then I am done. I am so EXCITED about being finished. During the next few hours I read some articles then I saw an ad for http://www.mossonline.com/ The decanter below is worth drinking wine. I don't want to promote drinking, but this enameled glass decanter is so Beautiful.

The most famous of these ideas - the Themes and Variations, illustrated variations on the image of an enigmatic, almost Mona Lisa-like face of a woman. The woman was Lina Cavalieri, whose face Fornasetti found while glancing through a 19th Century French magazine. Originally four plates were designed by Piero Fornasetti - the plate series now has 350 variations.This variation is exclusive to Moss.dimensions:10.25" diameter price:$245.00

This series was very much in the spirit of the 60s, incorporating eroticism, and psychedelic, and dream-like storylines.
