Introducing The Lampster!!!

August 13, 2018

By Tab Byrum

I love lamps and lighting, if I had to do it all over again I might study lighting design but for now, I’m in love with this new little guy, The Lampster. The Lampster is the result of a campaign on Kickstarter and the progress of the beginning up to know is tracked on The Lampster website and is kind of fascinating. There are four different finish types available called Army (looks a little beat-up), Artsy (think Jackson Pollock), Zombie (speaks for itself), and just color. There are nine color choices and then some of those are available in the first three categories. The Lampster is a lamp and so much more, you can sync it to the beat of your favorite music, you can control it using your phone or tablet, as well as having a touch feature to turn it on and off just by touching the lamp. I think this is awesome and will definitely look into getting one. The creators hail it as the most powerful desk lamp in the world and we all need that in our lives. Today I have some photos of The Lampster to share for you to get an idea of style and colors available, check out thelampster.com website when you have a chance as well as their Facebook page and as always, Enjoy!!!

I love anything with the word boutique in it, whether it’s a boutique hotel or a boutique bakery or in the case of Idlewild Co., a boutique paper company, I’m on board. We were out running around last weekend over the holiday and went into a wonderful shop on Automobile Alley in Oklahoma City and that’s where I stumbled onto some gorgeous prints by Idlewild. I came home and looked them up on the world wide web and love what I’m seeing. Idlewild was founded in 2010 by artist Katie Gastley, Katie began Idlewild by exhibiting some of her paintings at a Brooklyn craft fair, people took notice, began asking her for special items and a stationery company was born. Today Katie and her cohorts operate out of Florida and their products are sold online as well in stores across the U.S., Canada, Europe, Australia and Japan. We’ll definitely be paying Idlewild another visit in the near future, as for today here’s a look at some of their gorgeous products. Enjoy!!!

It’s time to start thinking about Sunday, June 19th which is Father’s Day, so I’m going to share some great things I’ve found that’ll make your Dad’s day extra special. Rawlings, of course, is an American based sports equipment company and has been around since 1887 specializing in baseball equipment and if your dad is into baseball or just enjoys anything well made from fine leathers than you need to check out the Rawlings Specialty Leather department on their website. In addition to baseballs and gloves, Rawlings is now producing beautiful leather accessories for men and women, but for the upcoming Father’s Day, we are going to focus on items for Dad. You can pick up most anything for Dad, from a leather chair to iPad covers, wallets of all sizes, organizers and money clips. I love that the items are made from the same leathers as their other products and many of them have great red baseball stitching as an accent, I enjoyed playing little league and high school baseball but maybe not as much as I’m enjoying these pieces, check ’em out for Dad and Enjoy!!!
