Cool Stuff I Like
March 9, 2012
I came into my room the other night to find that a little Spoka family had taken up residence. Spokas are little night lights from Ikea that are completely cool to the touch and look like little ghosts. Actually the ones selling now look like little mice. The spoka on the far right actually changes color; it’s Julia’s favorite spoka. She dragged all of them into our bed the other day to watch some TV with her, and then Andrew thought it would be entertaining for the cats to turn all the spokas on at once. They weren’t terribly impressed. Every time we go to Ikea, (not often, because it’s far from us) Julia begs for another spoka. I think we’re good at three. . .
I can’t believe that I’m writing a March COOL STUFF list! (It snowed a bit the other day.)
A friend who grew up in Hawaii with me, Greg Poirier, has created and written the new ABC show ‘Missing’, starring Ashley Judd. This Maui boy has done good – Congrats Greg! Y’all should totally watch on March 15.
Ryan from Pacing the Panic Room posted one of the coolest videos I've ever seen.
St. Patrick’s Day Cupcakes. And.....
Lucky Charms Cupcakes.
I love this herb pot. So springy! Thanks Anthro for not making it a million dollars.
The Real Housewives of Disney.
‘Ripe’ by Nigel Slater is being released this spring. I own ‘Tender’ and can’t wait for this one!
This exists? I read about Banana Cream Pie ice cream on Kelle Hampton’s blog. Getting ASAP.
A skincare line for tweens? Neato! I wanted to be an aesthetician once so this stuff floats my boat.
Cool Book of the Week: ‘The Hungry Leprechaun’ by Mary Calhoun and Roger Duvoisin. We’ve checked this book out from the library several times! Very fun story about How the Irish Discovered the Magic of Potatoes. (From a wily leprechaun of course.) Did you know dandelion soup is tasty? (But not as tasty as a potato.) Did you know leprechauns keep their magic in their fingertips?
Have a lovely weekend! Wear your house sweaters loud and proud!
