Have a wonderful weekend.

My darlings, what are you up to this weekend? Alex is going to teach me a little bit of guitar. Can you play one? (My secret fantasy is to be like this banjo-strumming mama!) We're also hoping to visit Storm King to see the rad sculptures. Have a great one, my lovelies, and here are a few fun posts from around the web...

Whole Foods Parking Lot made me laugh out loud!

Love these shoes for the fall.

On chocolate cakes, swirled icing looks much yummier than smooth icing.

Speaking of proposals, check out this marriage proposal!!!

A pretty chambray shirt.

Funny cookie cutters.

These childhood photos make my heart swell.

Under the sea.

Damn, now THAT is a sexy skirt.

Mariah's year of cakes in progress.

What a beauty (and puppy).

You should check out the Etsy/Better Than Jam Pop-up shop on Governors Island, while you over there! It's super-great and filled with all sorts of handmade goodness from NYC artists. It's near that big Storm King sculpture in one of the old houses.

Having just returned from a trip to Berkeley and its plethora of Priuses and Smart Cars, the Whole Foods video made me snort. And it went straight up on my Fb for all my California friends to see.

And that denim shirt seals it: I'm a die-hard fan of EmersonMade. Between that shirt and the gooorgeous caftan posted a little bit ago, I'm in love!

And thank goodness for that cake... I'm so over fondant!

alli said...

What a sweet marriage proposal! Your Friday links are always so great. :) Happy weekend!

I'm on my way to Vintage at Southbank in London! Just stopped for a coffee and to wait for my sister to catch up. This will be my first experience of the vintage style crowd outside of the blogosphere so I'm really excited. :)
Hope everyone else out there has a lovely weekend too.

Joanna- I'm so excited you're learning to play guitar. My husband just started teaching me too and I love love love it. Also if your fingers really hurt for the first week of playing, it's okay, mine did too :)

I recently wrote about learning:

Can't wait to hear how it goes!

Natasha said...

After the banjo try a Ukaleilei (sp?). I would love to learn, they are so small and always make me think of a vacation.

In Sardinia for a few weeks, but still love catching up on your blog... here are some of mý pictures

That photo makes me want to chop all my hair off! I think I might look a little too much like a boy though!

I never realised you and Alex had such an age gap between you! I'm currently in the same situation (me 23, him 36... really liking each other but also wary because of our ages) - I was hoping you'd consider writing about your experiences dating an older man.
Love your blog and read all the time.

The Whole Food Parking Lot video had me LOL! Great stuff to start of the week with. :)

Snappy Di said...

HA! Thank goodness. Someone who actually knows what a chambray shirt is. The girls in the dept. stores here in Roanoke looked at me like I was nuts when I went shopping for one for my husband.

asiajane said...

One of my favorite photos ever-- I adore Breathless! Jean Paul Belmondo and Jean Seberg are so adorable.

Elisa V said...

I do play guitar, and its just awesome. I play some other instruments but the good thing with a guitar is that is easy to carry and its always greatful for camping, beach or bonfire scenes.

Check out my blog please: www.fluorescent-naive.blogspot.com

I love EmersonMade! Also, the 12 cakes in a year idea is darling. I'm trying to think of a fun little hobby I can do and blog about myself.

Trina Enriquez said...

Have you watched the documentary "The Rape of Europa"? It's a fascinating account of what happened to Europe's art and architectural treasures during WWII. There's an interview with the woman whose parents were charged with safeguarding the Mona Lisa, and she talks about peeling back the velvet to peek at the great lady.

Here, I do not actually think this is likely to have success.

Part of me thinks this is a bullshit prosecution and another part of me thinks that this person may have been involved a lot more than they can prove right now.
We will know more after debriefing.
