Cool Stuff I Like

Happy February! It's here! The suckville fiesta that was January is OVER. Other than my birthday happening within it, I find nothing even slightly wonderful about January. It's a pretty-sounding name, January is, but it's not a pretty month, I've decided. It's a long, grey, cold, colorless endurance event of some kind. Or you know, something like that. But now it's Feb! Yay! A month of pink and red! I'm not joking! I'm gonna try mightily to only have pink or red themed Cool Stuff pictures this month because that seems like a jolly thing to do.


COOL STUFF I liked. And loved. 

My friend Danzel made a great list of 'Alice in Wonderland' themed books!

Chinese potstickers for Happy Chinese New year.


I think right about now I need a Superpower Morning Smoothie.


THE COOLEST KID BED! Scroll down till you see it.

Grown-up Tuna Noodle Casserole. (I love tuna casserole!)

Cupcakes for Clara. (very darling paper dolls)

LOVE LOVE these felt heart hanging garlands.


Cool Book of the Week: 'A Perfect Day' by Carin Berger. This one is soooooo amazing. Reminds me a bit of Alison Jay's work. It's fabulousity for tiny tots, with very simple, rhythmic phrases used throughout. The art and the text remind me of that quiet, stillness that one can hear (yes you can hear silence!) when snow first falls. The whole thing is beautiful, peaceful, and lovingly captures the joy children experience during playtime in the snow.



HAVE A LOVELY WEEKEND! I think for the first time, in a long time, we are going to sit around and play board games and watch movies and just CHILL. (while also staying warm)

  2. Hi Melissa, I just requested "A Perfect Day" from our library....it looks really cute. I'm always so happy to discover a new kid's author that I didn't already know about. Thanks and have a great weekend!

  3. Pssst the pot sticker recipe link and pinterest link is broken.

    That tuna recipe looks amazing. I wish Mr. Whimsy liked chopped tuna more.

    Ooooo I kinda feel like making that felt garland.

    We have a shared love for Apartment Therapy ;)

    I'm so wondering what that smoothie tastes like.

    1. Fixed! Not sure what happened there. The internets are a mysterious place sometimes :) I figured there would be crafty people out there who would see the garland and think 'I could make that!' alas I am not one of them. Loved that felt case you made the other day!

  5. Great links as usual! I am such a sucker for Alice in Wonderland, paper dolls and potstickers, smoothies! (no necessarily in that order)

    How do people come up with such clever design for their house? I feel so boring.
