Something very strange happened to me today. Without explanation, I went on a mission to find heart-shaped cookie cutters, red ribbon, and made these biscuits, which I am hoping to distribute to friends tomorrow. That is if I manage to avoid eating them all myself (three down so far) and feel confident in confronting the English reserve (I'm still trying to figure out who would appreciate them). As a person who does not bake, does not like hearts, does not have a Valentine, and would still hate Valentine's Day even if I did, I am thrilled with my heart-shaped and very tasty achievement.
You must look at this fabulous wedding - the shoes, the dress, the vintage brooch used to pin the flowers - delightful! I do wonder if it is a good use of my time to click through to look at a stranger's whole wedding album on Flickr, but I couldn't resist.
These vintage seed packets are a great idea for cheap artwork.
I love looking at other people's inspiration boards, scribbles and collected scraps of paper - as someone who is always ripping articles out of newspapers (which then languish at the bottom of my handbag, never to surface intact) I love Tina's New York notebooks.
I have just discovered this gorgeous French blog - why is it that the French are inherently more stylish?
What are you doing this weekend? I am going to an interactive scratch 'n' sniff play tomorrow, and on Sunday have a friend coming round to try this heart-flecked hot chocolate. I am hoping I will be over all this sentimentality and back to my usual cynical self by Monday. Speaking of sentimentality, Tara at Aquamarine awarded me a little blog award. Thanks! Have a great weekend everyone.
