Labor Day means a three-day weekend, yippee!
and while that alone already makes this weekend a great one, it can’t hurt to add an extra dose of feel-good to make it even better! are you ready?
Fighting Gravity: mom clued me in to this group of Virginia boys and I must admit to being seriously impressed. Usually college boys + black lights only add up to a dingy frat party, but not for these guys. Way to make frat guys look good, gentlemen!
Dalton Ghetti: I love a good ‘ol #2 pencil…even through college I preferred the classic yellow pencil & a pocket pencil sharpener over more “contemporary” options. Artist and sculptor Dalton Ghetti loves pencils too–well, to be more exact, pencil lead. So. Ridiculously. Cool.
Zooey & Joseph: in this week’s Tuesday Tunes with The Temper Trap I mentioned a film, 500 Days of Summer. Zooey Deschanel & Joseph Gordon-Levit play Summer & Tom, the endearing leads of the film—I’m a huge fan of both. In the spirit of 500 Days, Zooey & Joseph teamed up again for a music video to Why Do You Let Me Stay Here by the duo She & Him (Zooey is the “She” in this lovely duo!). I adore this video for far too many reasons to list…
Cupcakes in a Jar: red velvet cupcakes and cream cheese icing…in a jar? You read right, in a jar. These would make for some pretty darn cute (& delicious) party favors! Grab some jars & head over to Cakies for the full article & recipe.
The Exquisite Book: this book makes me very happy & don’t even own it…yet. 10 groups of 10 artists (that makes 100 all together, wink) collaborated to give us something truly extraordinary. The Exquisite Book is a journey through pictures, literally. An element from each page is carried into the next, connecting all 100+ pages together. Confused? See for yourself & smile (:
T. Sweezy: you might also know her as Taylor Swift. She makes dreams come true (even if it means wearing heels for 14.5 hours) and I adore her for it. Miss Swift, you’re one of a kind. (i needed tissues at the 2:30 mark)
it just so happens Taylor also has a new single, Mine, that’s pretty great:
wishing you a truly wonderful 3 DAY weekend! abundant joy, M.
