Jonathan Adler: Using Ornaments to Create Mobiles!
I know these Jonathan Adler holiday ornaments are for, well, the holidays, but I was thinking that since they are only around 3″ high, it would be really fun to use the white animals and create a modern mobile using ribbons in bright hues. I’m not talking about a nursery mobile either; I would like to see this in my apartment, I think it would be playful but also unique, and given that I love Adler’s animals, the perfect way for me to bring them into my space in an unexpected way.

Do you like? Have you ever created a mobile for your space? Any photos or comments to this?

    ok – I am so happy right now! :) I’ve been wanting to get the tall ceramic Adler giraffe for some time but haven’t been able to justify the purchase quite yet, but this pricepoint is no problem! I just love the giraffe lamp too…such a great design! $375 though…if only I’d actually WON money in Vegas this weekend…sigh…
