Happy Friday!!! I'm going away on vacation (flight leaves tonight). We'll be crossing the big pond to visit Mr. & Mrs. H. They live in Stilton, a very small town about an hour north of London. Looking forward to the village life - sheep running around in grassy knolls, four pubs and five restaurants (the four pubs and one Indian restaurant)! I'm not sure if I'm going to have connection once I'm there, so posting times may get a bit erratic. I'll be back on Saturday the 4th, so regular postings will resume on Monday the 6th. If you want, you can email email@example.com with the subject line "Lifeflix reminder" and you'll receive a one-time email once postings are back to normal.
Just in case - I hope everyone has a nice week!! I put together a little weekend read for you, a collection of sites to check out. Enjoy...
Here are some sites that make me wish I still had a job (ok maybe just for a few minutes):
- Shop Frock
- Odd Molly - I love all of the pieces.
- Here's a a great Etsy shop for affordable art! "DNA Memory Drawing" is my favorite one. I love this!! It's drawn, painted and stitched. I also like "Fungi Print".
When I get back, I'd like to sit down and go through all of the archives from these blogs.
- The Ivestown Blog - I want to live in her house!
- Bodi - Beautiful images. I can't read it but the pictures say it all.
- charlestonweddingsmag.com/style/ (blog)
- Ever wonder how to corn beef? or how to serve and plate? The Classic Culinary Arts site has a short collection of cooking techniques as well as an impressive collection of 19th Century American recipes.
- What spices to use? A great guide to spices.
- Here's the next dessert recipe that I'd like to try - Dulce de Leche Pecan Pie. It's from dessert comes first, a great food blog written by a food writer from the Philippines.
DESIGN & TOOLS:
- I love Paula Sanz Caballero's work. I just love the way she mixes her illustrations with hand-embroidery and fabric swatches. I would love to have a collection of her handcrafts in small shadow boxes!
- DIY graph and grid paper. Free downloadable and printable PDFs. (I forget which blog I saw this featured in - sorry!)
- Need more fonts? A great resource for different themes (e.g., basic, script, fancy)
- Bored with your Desktop image? Browse through this great selection of free desktop wallpapers.
