A Few Random Bits (On a Rainy Friday...)

image via la in bloom

First up, this movie, which is making me want to play hooky from work this afternoon so I can go see it (sorry boss), but I won’t. It looks visually stunning and dreamy and, well, there’s just something sort of perfect about hunkering down in a movie theater on a rainy day, no?


Next, this book (via joy), which, based on its cover (yes, I realize, this is dangerous...judging a book by its cover and all) looks fantastic. That marbleized paper banner alone has me convinced there’ll be loads of goodness inside. Can’t wait to get my hands on it to find out for sure…






And finally, (and speaking of paper) these paper dolls, which were an incredibly lovely and kind gift from the talented Hannah of Lily and Thistle.

She offered to send personalized sets to the girlies, and friends, they are quite possibly the sweetest paper dolls I’ve encountered (+ the girls had a blast playing with them.) I’m planning to get these for all the little girls on our Christmas list this year. (Yes I’m already thinking about Christmas shopping {I know, I know} maybe I’ll just blame it on the rainy weather…)

Happy Friday… Have a splendid weekend friends!

p.s. don’t forget about the handmade doll giveaway

I don't know about you, but this weather we're having is making me absolutely crave fall. I've decided to just make believe it is. I'm making beef stew tomorrow night, and possibly even some pumpkin pancakes for breakfast.

Couldn't agree more about I Am Love. Give me that and The Kids Are All Right and keep your summer explosions and car chases, Hollywood.

Paper dolls were my absolute favorite when I was a little girl. They are just beautiful. I am also jealous of your rainy day! Another 112 day for us!

Who says your boss even knows about your blog? Play hookie all you want - he'll never know ;-)

If you haven't played hookie yet, do so immediately, and go see this movie! It is a feast for the eyes. I went to hide from soaring 104 degree temperatures in the movie theater last week, and it was probably the only sensible thing I did all week! So worth it. Enjoy!

i had not heard of the "i am love" movie until this post last week...so upon your suggestion i went and saw it. visual stunning movie, in so many ways. so much to think about...so glad i saw the movie although i don't generally care for movies which delve into infidelity. thanks for the suggestion. did you see it yet?
