I can get behind this Bandana’s message.

Entryway Mosaic Floor

Last week I was invited to a friend’s house and this is the mosaic that greeted me at the entryway. What a stunning statement right at the entrance of a home! The masterpiece is by Sarah Donato. I learned from the owner Jules that they were inspired by Nick Misani’s work.

Now I am dreaming of one day renovating a home and being able to hire Sarah to make me a custom mosaic. One day! One day!

Adobe Creative Residency 2019

The Adobe Creative Residency is currently taking applications until February 7th. It’s the *coolest* project Adobe has ever put together! I wish I could apply! Maybe you can?

2009/2019

I find the currently happening 10-Year-Challenge a bit silly, but then I saw this interpretation and couldn’t stop laughing. Well done, Violeta Corderosa.

What A Heartwarming Thread

Ace of Cups | I Feel Good


From 1967 to 1972, the Ace of Cups were at the epicenter of the ‘60s cultural and social revolution, the first ever all female rock band. They shared stages with everyone from The Band to the Grateful Dead, and were chosen to open for Jimi Hendrix the week after his groundbreaking performance at The Monterey Pop Festival.

Despite eliciting music industry interest for their exceptional songs, sublime harmonies and exuberant live performances, the Ace of Cups never got the chance to make a record… until now.

Check out their music. Love these ladies so much.

Color Wheel Socks

These socks make me happy.

Skip The Small Talk With A “Personality Cheese Board”

Here’s an idea for you to cut through all the small talk, next time you host a party:

A few days ago I experimented with a “Cheese Personality Party”. Everyone had to bring a cheese that reflects their personality in some way or the other. Once everyone was present, we stood in a circle around the cheeses and listened to everyone’s reasoning for their choice. I was surprised how honest, sometimes vulnerable and sometimes just plain funny the thinking was. I will definitely do this again. ⠀ ⠀ ⠀

Looking at a cheese board filled with your friends’ personalities is simply the best.

My friends Stephanie and Jonathan Fields definitely made us laugh by bringing a cheesecake. Well played!

Dogs!

A few weeks ago I joined my friend Sue at Prospect Park with her dogs, during off leash hours, and all I could think off is how much I would love to line up all the dogs for a group shot. (Hundreds of dogs!)

A few days ago she tagged me on a Instagram account called Saratoga Dogwalker, and I knew instantly why! They line up their pups regularly. I am so in love with this.

Choir! Sings Never Gonna Give You Up

My love for Choir! Choir! Choir! runs so deep! This one with Rick Astley made my heart burst. The founders of this heart-opening organization are definitely on my list of people I would love to have coffee with one day. There is so much JOY oozing out of this video!

Pilea

I have developed a slight Pilea obsession. (You can order one over at The Sill.)

Mushroom Bloom Time-lapse

This time-lapse made me giggle!

Emotional First Aid Kit

Continuously impressed with The School of Life. Their latest product made me chuckle and go “I NEED THAT”: The Emotional First Aid Kit is a box of wise emergency advice for 20 key psychological situations, including: Friendship, Love, Sex, Work and Self.

I Feel Great

Current sentiment brought to you by Adam J. Kurtz: I Feel Great, also available as a Tattly, but only for a few more weeks.

Library Planet

Loving this idea: Library Planet is like a ‘Lonely Planet’ for libraries of the world. Next time I book a trip I might book it around a library I want to see. They don’t have many entries yet, but I can see how beautiful this could be. Everybody can contribute. Let’s help these folks fill this directory with our beautiful libraries. Who’s in?
