A monstrously long week at this end, one that saw me up before dawn every single day, much to the dismay of Ottie and Portia who are not much interested in breakfast before 5 am. So to start the weekend, I rounded up a few things that amused me or made me feel better this week.
One. When I saw this on our friend Eddie’s FB page, I knew I wanted one. How much more interesting would your underwear be if it was kept in such a cabinet?? Rumor has it Ikea bought the patent.
Two. I have always had a soft spot for the Burlington Arcade in London, an oasis of peace and restraint (and stodgy and unaffordable shops) just off busy Piccadilly. These recently happened to the Burlington Arcade: how gorgeous are they? And the stodginess was erased in the time it took to hang them. Art by Zoe Bradley – chandeliers made entirely of paper (via sofagirl).
Four. Because we think we are so smart and this is a lovely animated proof we are not.
Five. Just because.
