Maybe I might have mentioned once or twice that I love Charley Harper just a little bit. So this morning when I saw on Design*Sponge that Fishs Eddy now has a Charley Harper + Todd Oldham collection, I just about dropped dead. I died! And then I got up, and died again.  I love every single piece.

This photo is directly from the Fishs Eddy website.
And wouldn't you know it, Fishs Eddy is four short blocks from my office. And lookee here what I bought:

I kid you not when I say that if I had a CHINA CABINET, I would have bought the plates and everything they had to display in it. So, take that, Husband. I could have "china", if I had somewhere to put it. Not exactly your fine bone china, but this is a bit more my style

Perhaps you're asking yourself, "If she loved these things so much, why did she only buy a bowl and a plate?" And I will tell you. But it's a longer, and equally uninteresting story.

H. and I get summer Fridays, which means in the summer, on Fridays, we only work half the day. We had a plan for this afternoon to visit a store (which shall remain nameless) that people always rave about, but that I had never been to. My aim was to buy a lamp, since yesterday I had a lamp epiphany (nothing to do with owl lamps), yet didn't want to spend too much money. So, we had a plan to go to this store and buy a lamp, and so I couldn't go crazy at Fishs Eddy because I thought I was going to have to bring a lamp home on the subway. Well, I didn't buy a lamp. Let me say that this store - this fabled haven of homeware, did not suit H. or I. It was all over-decorated, mass produced blah blah blah. No lamp. No nothing. If I had been in the market for a variety of ceramic frogs, I would have been in luck!

Anyway, considering my dangerous proximity to Fishs Eddy, it's embarrassingly likely that I'll be back for more Charley Harper-ware. Now, if only I had an awesome china cabinet.

I love you, china cabinet. STILL.
