Hi everyone! Thanks for all the sweet compliments on yesterday’s dresser makeover post! What are you up to this weekend? We’re celebrating an aunt’s 90th birthday and more than anything I want to catch up on some books I’ve been meaning to finish. I have a few sitting on the nightstand, but what would you recommend for a good summer read?
And a few other links I enjoyed this week:
50 designer tips for choosing a sofa.
Oooh I want one: a mason jar coffee brewer
Have you seen GeoGuessr? You have five attempts to guess where you are in the world based on Google map images and get points based on how close you get. My high score was 8,561 after three tries and a lucky guess. Turning the image helps.
Which summer movie are you looking forward to? For me it’s a toss up between Star Trek and The Lone Ranger.
I had no idea there were this many Sherlock Holmes.
Here’s a gorgeous (and educational) print on pairing food & wine.
I’m taking notes for the future on this stunning Sonoma vineyard wedding.
A reflection on surviving divorce and the rainbow after the storm.
A not to miss photo dress up series for girls.
Hexagons are so hot in design right now. Here’s a fascinating look at the Honeycomb Conjecture and why bees create this efficient and elegant shape in their hives.
Have a fab weekend!
