Shades of green...warm up your Spring with these St. Patrick's Day inspired gifts...serving tray from Alessi, turquoise necklace, Magritte's pipe plate, ceramic turtle, frog purse, and bunny paper towel dispenser shown with a green iphone case, and plastic watering vessel, last, but not least, a handmade glass star by Robert Held...
Spring ahead with this cool clock with a unique adhesive backing that allows you to "stick" it where you might ordinarily not be able to hang one such as on a mirror, fridge, or even a window. The clock with smooth movement (battery operated) keeps accurate time and comes in several color combinations. See this and other contemporary wall clocks and watches @ J.R.Kortman Center for Design.
