Starred 7.24.09


Happy Friday! It’s been a lovely week at the Bungalow, and it’s looking like it’s going to be an equally lovely weekend as well! We’re tasting cakes on Saturday evening, and on Sunday, the ladies are crafting again. We’ll make more paper birds, finish the name banner, and discuss the logistics of how the garland will be made/where in the yard it will drape. There will be pictures, I’m sure!

And now, here are the things that made me smile this week, from all across the internet:

  • When I came across Death to Cupcakes by Sarah DiGregorio (via Just a Girl in the City), I was, like Kelly, taken by surprise at the amount of animosity for the very existence of cupcakes! A & I were kind of planning on them for the wedding, and I just think they’re so cute and whimsical and fun– although I guess I understand the dislike of ubiquitous, kitchy boutique bakeries. I dunno though. Hating cupcakes is like hating kittens, it makes me judge you funny. :)
  • Things I Like About Coffee, via Le Love:

  • The lovely Dita Von Teese in Jean Paul Gaultier. We’re all over him, this season, too. But Dita is just flawless:

  • I love sweaty cans of coke in summer. Via Just a Girl in the City:

“Candy took a long sip, and watched the soda slip up and around the bend in the straw. It seemed to take a long time to reach her tongue, but as soon as the fizzy, cinnamony sweetness swept in, her eyes widened as childhood flashed before her eyes. ‘I don’t know how people can drink Diet Coke,’ she quipped, and began jumping on the bed in the manner of a well-dressed, pink-cheeked third grader.”

  • These dark, haunting watercolors by Nat Carroll have the opposite feel of the Happy Coke Drinker, but I love them anyway.

  • This article from MakeUnder Your Life. I thought it was a pretty good synthesis of all that stuff your mother tries to teach you, but that you don’t really believe until much later when it has proved itself true for he millionth time. Plus, the article is filled with gorgeous photography & positivism! Just the right medicine for a busy couple of days.What adventures are on your horizons this weekend??

    Glad you liked Allison’s DYL interview! I loved it as well. Like I mentioned, the “You get in what you put out” idea is something I need to remind myself daily.

    Have a great weekend!
