I wish I had a bigger picture, but you get the idea, great soft blue ground with a large graphic koi and Lucite feet. I love the blue with the orange, it's really striking. This picture was the only info I could find out about it, I guess it's so new that they haven't updated the website.

These are just a few of my favorites. I think a couple of these mixed and matched on the dresser or vanity would be perfect. There are a lot more options online, check them out here. Did I mention all are extremely affordable?

When the tour of the main house and the guest house (who knew there was a guest house - whose interior I fell in love with along with the gorgeous wisteria hanging off the roof) was over I made a beeline for the gift shop ready to spend. And spend I did - books, cards and best of all these wonderful earrings:
They are wonderful because suspended in each one is a piece of concrete saved during the restoration of Fallingwater (the rest is acrylic and silver - they not at all heavy). I can't tell you how many people have commented on them when I wear them, and I just love telling the story. How fantastic to have a piece of this house that you can wear - they also make pendants and cuff links too. They are one of my prized possessions and my "go to" earrings that look great with everything. They are a special souvenir of a great day and a great piece of architecture!
