friday links (week two)

Posted on


So the past week has been an interesting one; my housemate got a bad case of food poisoning, which involved a stay in hospital and a few days off solid food. Hence, the glass above where I decided to try some hydrolyte (I was feeling tired. It seemed like a solution).

But anyways, here we go with this week’s round-up:

  • kitchen planter box for some herbs. Now to convince someone to make it for me…
  • Art! The things you can do with a camera that has a fast shutted speed!
  • Lovely. Birds in flight. There’s something beautiful and suggestive about paintings of flocks of birds.
  • Tips for bloggers! I’m linking to the final post, and if you scroll down, you can back-track to the beginning of the series of posts. A lot of good advice, and a lot of insight into how SERIOUS blogging can be. It’s a little bit scary.
  • Apart from some questions about the nutritional value of these, this post on homemade cat treats is just so sweet.
  • I’m putting these on my to-do list. I need to figure out how to read knitting patterns, and these bracelets seem like just the thing.
  • I’m thinking of having a (late) birthday party later this year/early next year. I think this would be good as a simple, cheap, way to put a bit of colour in.
  • Yum. I live in Australia, and a lot of the Halloween/Autumn-mania going on in content I see from the US hasn’t got much meaning to me. But I can understand apples, and I can definitely understand apple martinis.
  • Yay! Yarn bombing!
  • Considering how much packing I’ve had to do lately, I thought this post on packing tips was a good read.

friday links.

I thought I would start a new series, called ‘Weekend Wonders’. Or maybe the ‘Fat Friday’ series. Still undecided. But here I’ll put up a list of links which I found throughout the week which could bear to be shared.

  • A pretty cool poster from A Song of Ice and Fire. Limited release, unfortunately, and sold-out before I even found the site. But still pretty. And cool.
  • I have a thing for recipes involving slow-cooked meat.
  • A look at the design process  the guys at Johnny Walker, one of my favourite webcomics, went through to design a t-shirt.
  •  Maybe this has been around for a while, but I just found it today. Design your own temporary tattoos!
  • Pretty cool! A calendar of interest for food bloggers – ideas for inspiration, international days of [insert food], birthdays of figures of pop culture. Reasons to celebrate every day for every one, really. 
  • I was working in Palliative Care today, and maybe that’s put me into a little bit of an odd mental space, but I found this letter particularly interesting. Maybe it’s morbid, but I think it’s poetry.
  • I’ll repeat; ‘Maybe it’s morbid, but I think it’s poetry.’ The anatomy of a barbie doll.
  • Some crochet-blanket inspiration.
  • I remember making these bracelets when I was in Malaysia and India, and I’d give them to my cousins and my housemates. Nostalgic!
  • I like this. I especially like the face he pulls after he high-fives her.
