Cool Things You Will Like

Happy 4th of July!

Thought I'd share links to some of the things I've been enjoying this week. Savor the long weekend!

I can certainly see this being the perfect spot to have that 4th of July beer and watch fireworks. Now there's a tutorial if you want to make your own! (ReadyMade)

I just love her pictures so much. It's no surprise that she is a professional food photographer. (Frances Janisch)

I can't say I ever felt a driving need to make my own .gif, but now? Oh, now it's a different story. (Liz Stanley)

Oddly enough I haven't seen her show yet, but Emily Henderson is hilarious. I am definitely setting my DVR. (And not to state the obvious, but her design style is SO me!) (Emily Henderson, Secrets from a Stylist)

This is quickly becoming my M.O. these days. Yikes. I have too much to get done.

One time I made a princess costume out of an old sheet and some filmy curtains, but this? This is magnificent. I am incredibly jealous even though I can't imagine what I would do with this when the hundreds of hours of work on it was done. Something tells me wearing a dress modeled after the 1910's to a wedding might be overkill. (Amber Mendenhall)

I am heading out to buy some sketch pads today. Brilliant.

    I really like the animated .jpg! I am going to have to try that one out!!

    Last question: How do you mow the couch?
