Sunday Surfing - Pertinent Poetry

Sunday Surfing

I have been listening to TedTalks on Podcast during my morning walks with Lucy and have found many of them greatly inspiring. If you are unfamiliar with the TED conference you can learn more about it here. Most of the lectures and talks that are presented there can be found on YouTube or on Podcasts and they cover almost any topic worth talking about. I have been listening to the business and design ones mostly, but there are SO many and they are fascinating! This morning I stumbled on a talk by Billy Collins, former U.S. Poet Laureate and was really taken with his work. I thought I would share one of my favorites. If you have teenagers I think you will find this particularly funny, but even if you don't, it's humor and human-ness is worth a watch.

Have a great Sunday!

Hiya! Just back from my fun fun day at Scatter Joy and will gather myself and post about that soon! Found this little ditty over at Making it Lovely and was quite taken with it. Thought you might like it to. Don't you want to go find a quiet afternoon and a sun-lit farmhouse to make cake in? I do!

Sunday Surfing -Last Minute Love

Sunday Surfing

I was just catching up on my Google reader and checking out everyone's DIY Valentine's ideas when I stumbled on this at Joy Ever After. We have all made coupon books over the years (particularly when we were really really poor starving artist types and didn't have much to give at the holidays. Or was that just me?) But these are the cutest I have seen yet!! They are from BenignObjects on Etsy.

Here are a few more of my fave ideas for the holiday from some of my fave blogs:

1.) Just love these happy hearts from Leslie at A Creative Mint!

2.) I am totally smitten with these DIY coffee wraps from Eat Drink Chic! So dang cute!

3.) I have had a long-time professional crush on Mr. Rob Ryan and it is thus furthered with his new papercuts.

4.) If i ever recover from my sugar cooke disappointment, I will make these beauties from Prudent Baby.

5.) This has nothing to do with Valentine's day but I nearly died when I saw Sweet Paul's new tatoo!! Amazing.

6.) Something chocolatey, delicious and healthy!? Don't mind if I do! From Julie at The Alkaline Sisters blog.

7.) These would be perfect for Coach! (he's a tea-not-coffee-guy) from Design*Sponge.

Alrighty!! Enjoy that. A little light Sunday surfing. I am off to the vintage market! Tell you about it soon!
