Happy Friday! It's been a busy, busy week for us - between packaging and sending Christmas orders (!), updating the site, chatting to bloggers, pinning away on Pinterest (how could we not?!), and compiling Christmas market guides, we barely had a moment to stop and gather all our favourite links from around the interwebs. So seeing as we're one day late for Thins we love Thursday', I thought I'd compile the list under a 'Friday Link Feast'. Enjoy!
♥ Have you seen 91 Magazine's 5th issue yet? It's a pearler, stacked with great gift guides, free calendar wallpaper downloads and a great article on crafts you can make with vintage books (you know we're all over that - how beautiful are the paper flowers in the image above?!). Seriously, for content and editorial of that quality, you'd think you would have to pay a small fortune to access it - but by the powers of the internet, it's free! Check it out and get inspired!
♥ How's your spelling? This infographic tells you the most commonly misspelled words in the US and UK. I can say, hand on my heart, that I'm a great speller (it's my party trick!), but 'definitely' still trips me up sometimes.
♥ What's your go-to Christmas music? Usually I just dust off the old Buble, but I'm quite taken with A Very She & Him Christmas (vocals by New Girl's Zooey Deschanel), and I've also been listening to Gala's festive mixtape - That third track is a killer.
♥ Have you ever thought about painting your sofa? Apparently, using CeCe Caldwell's Chalk and Clay Paint, you can! Hell yes to a hot pink sofa!
That's one pink transformation! Image from Debi's Design Diary.
♥ These are five great tips to help kick SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder) in the face. There was a mini snow storm in London this week and seeing as it gets dark at 4:30pm now, this is good advice to not get down in the dumps. I would also like to add that writing out your Christmas cards is a great mood booster - kind of like appreciation therapy. There's nothing like writing out all your 'thank you's', and 'you're awesome's' to make you realise how many fantastic friends you have.
♥ Lately I've been loving the blog, Fabric of my life, it's so beautifully styled and wonderfully inspirational. Particularly loved Kate's musings on Cuba - I went there a few years ago, drank far too much rum and LOVED IT!
♥ How gorgeous are these illustrated Czechoslovakian stamps from 1959? They're like little works of art.
♥ Jen from Jenlittlebirdie is doing advent calendar posts to mark down Christmas and it is so lovely! Her photography is just beautiful. That warm wood cabin from Advent Day 6 is calling to us...
Have a great weekend! Keep warm and drink some gluhwein!
