Round Up

I just have a few items this week. I am suffering from heat-induced ennui.

Anthropologie Bookbinder Heels.

There's something about a walled city. I would love to visit all of them, but thus far, I have only been to Quebec City many years ago. I think that is some place A. and I will have to go. I think it's fun to go somewhere with your sweetie that one of you has visited previously.

The charming blog, 500 Pieces of Advice for my Baby Daughter, has been published as a very charming book. Full of loads of thoughtful and sometimes humorous advice for everyone.

Hmmm....Books about journalistic scandals.

Creativity abounds at Kickstarter.

It's easy-Get Swabbed-SAVE A LIFE.

Yes, you can mail a frisbee. I decorated a pink frisbee in the most girly way possible, with loads of stickers, and sent it to my niece. I don't know who got more of a kick out of it-her or me. Also, here.

Printable tatoo paper. I hope I can control myself. Also, Tattly-designer temporary tats.

Top ten books written by a librarian.

What could be more romantic, floating around on a barge bringing books to folks.

The African American Civil War Museum has a new home-1925 Vermont Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 20001.

I confess. I have always had a penchant for globes. And some of the beauties at the Omniterrum are incredible.

I have become addicted to Aerial America on the Smithsonian Channel HD. I become totally mesmerized by the gorgeous cinematography and the beauty of this country. So far I've seen Maine (3 times), Oregon (twice) and Vermont.

Another addiction of the cloth variety-Tekla dishtowels from Ikea.

That's all for this week. Have a good weekend. And if you are fortunate to live in a cool setting-I'M SO JEALOUS. 72 DAYS UNTIL OCTOBER.

Never knew there was such a thing as printable tatoo paper. I guess I just might have a new obsession.
