Cool Stuff I Like
January 13, 2012
Love this pinecone decoration. This one survived the transition from Christmas stick tree to January winter stick tree.
It suddenly got a bit colder! Freezing fog in the mornings and the hint, the smallest possibility of a teensy bit of SNOW early next week! I hope we get at least a small smattering of snow this year. I do so much better with actual cold and snow rather than continual grey 45 degree blah. After spending the week obsessing over fonts, I’m ready to dive into a pile of blankies and pillows with some hot chocolate and watch fifty viewings of whatever the heck Julia wants to watch. Winter paralysis has seized me, I may as well really throw in the towel.
I found some very fun COOL STUFF this week:
My sweet Vanessa from Silly Eagle Books discovered BABY LIT BOARD BOOKS. ADORE.
FAIRY TOAST!!!! I’m losing my mind here. Should I make it now? Valentine’s Day?
Remember my Octonauts post? THERE’S A SHOW!!! Julia’s wild for it. It’s so fun and darling!
I don’t know if I’d rather have Sashimi Cat attacking me or Sally eating my clothes.
I love this pillow! Andrew pronounced it hideous.
Didn’t know I craved an Elephant Toothbrush Holder before now. $12! SO CUTE!
French toast muffins.
I want to make a large mural like this with Julia. Maybe a winter one?
Cool Book of the Week: ‘Winter Story’ by Jill Barklem. Vanessa (see above) put me on to the ‘Brambly Hedge’ books. We’ve read several of them now and the incredibly detailed and intricate art is such a wonder. This one is all about the mouse community making ready for their annual winter festival.
Have a lovely weekend! I’m hoping to rouse myself out of my winter-itis.
