    Oh, I', reading Jane's book right now. And, Patty Pinner. I LOVE that book. My favorite of her anecdotes is the one about the deacon's feet. do you know the one I mean?

    Hollywood road antiques

    Hey, I know this antique shop on Holly Road in Hong Kong. They have quite a range of ceramics and lamps. There is another version of this lamp that uses the same ceramic pillow but in a deep sea green color. Actually these ceramic bricks are used not exactly as pillows but rather as a sort of "wrist pillow" used for traditional Chinese medicine. Some of the pricing at some of the shops is out of this world (see: http://www.antique-chinese-furniture.com/blog/2009/04/24/antiques-shopping-on-hollywood-road-in-hong-kong/) though not all are this way. Either way, its a great place to browse.

    Thanks for the additional info on the ceramic "pillows"--I am glad to learn more about them! I love my lamp and I really enjoyed this particular shop--wish I could have bought more!

    Okay, so we don't live in Tokyo...

    • ...but "Texas to Yamaguchi" didn't have quite the same ring to it. No matter where we are, we're living cozy. For now, it's an uninsulated Japanese mini-castle; in the future, it'll be a country house in Germany. I'm keepin' house happily amidst a family life of part-time homeschooling, traveling, sports, unfinished craft projects, good food and music, and overflowing bookcases. Just the way we like it.
