Holidays and a good start to the year…

January 11, 2014

Very happy to have found these things to while the spare hours away –

TO READ – The Terrible Thing that Happened to Barnaby Brocket (written for kids but such a cautionary fable for all to read.. and Illustrated by lovely Oliver Jeffers!)
Me Talk Pretty One Day (Paul’s reading me bits at bedtime and it has me laughing out loud!)
The Gifts of Imperfection (Like me you may have seen the author Brene Brown on TED talks – I have to thank Kelly Rae Roberts for recommending this on her blog – it’s superb!)

TO WATCH – Top of the Lake by Jane Campion (a mini-series)

Stefan Sagmeister on TIME OFF WORK

Which led to this Dan Gilbert talk on synthesized happiness – A MUST SEE!

TO MAKE –
If you’re into Macrame pot hangers (very IN)

This inspired Ellen and I to make a dye jar yesterday that will sit in the sun for the next month! What magic will we unfold?  See the master India Flint’s book for sale here…
