Round Up

These toast coasters are cute and look like some healthy, fiber-dense bread.

Some new books about history.

Wonderful items on Svpply.

There are a few things that unnerve me as I'm sure it is with most folks, and one of those things is big groups of dolls or even worse, doll heads. So the mere fact that I am providing this link shows that I REALLY want to share the article with my 3 loyal readers.

I'm not big on mid-century modern, but there is something very cool about Restoration Hardware's aviation collection. Bit pricey though.

Diggin' Mayer Hawthorne. Nice old school r&b.

Seattle's Walker Rock Garden is for sale. The family who created this marvel can no longer afford to maintain it. Let's hope that the purchaser keeps it just the way it is.

The top 19 best-read Presidents.

Folks keep crying about the possibility of e-books totally obliterating the need for the physical book. I think it is a bunch of hogwash. They said the same thing when paperbacks became popular. "What's going to happen to hardback books?". While folks are worried about e-books, they should probably through in the possible demise of book ends, bookcases, book carts, etc., etc.

2011 paint color trends from the Paint Quality Institute.

These underwear, gutchies, knickers, unders, etc. are the bomb. Available from Five Go Mad in the UK.

And, the 2011 USPS stamps. Looking forward to the Pioneers of American Industrial Design stamps (scroll down), American Scientists, Owney the Postal Dog, and Barbara Jordan stamps.

Really fun blog honoring the 1950's pink bathrooms that everyone is ripping out of their homes today-Save the Pink Bathrooms.

So your wee ones aren't so wee anymore and they don't want to watch their Clifford the Big Red Dog DVD's a hundred times a day. What to do with all of those children's dvd's that you cost a small fortune. Why not donate them to Kidflicks? Kidflicks was founded by a few moms that are donating kid movies to hospital pedicatric wards. What a lovely idea!!!

The secret life of punctuation.

These Angry Little Girls products are cute. I am an angry BIG girl.

If you want to feast your eyes on some culinary porn and some wonderful recipes visit the King Arthur Flour blog. I've mentioned it before, but it is so wonderful I feel it deserves a second shout-out. Just feast your eyes on the Cabot Cheddar Soda Bread or the Maple Meringues.

What was on Hamlet's playlist?

Drat!!! I missed the Hot Chocolate Festival.

And, speaking of festivals. The 19th Annual Environmental Film Festival in the Nation's Capital takes place on March 15-27, 2011.

The New York Times is reviewing one children's picture book per week. Whoopeee!!!!

That's all for this week. Have a nice weekend.
