I’m heading back to New York tomorrow, which means blogging activities will resume at their normal pace tomorrow afternoon. Here are just a few things in the meantime.
1. I saw The Young Victoria last night and it was amazing. Even though there’s no clear plot structure, the movie is gorgeous and very well acted. It also has some of my favorite British period actors (ex. Miranda Richardson as Duchess of Kent, Jim Broadbent as King William, Harriet Walter as Queen Adelaide, and Michael Maloney as Sir Robert Peel).
2. I love happy PostSecrets. This one was posted yesterday and might be my all-time favorite.
3. Selectism, as always, read my mind and posted this amazing striped jumper. I don’t care if it’s supposed to be for boys. This girl wants one.
When I get back I promise to blog about all the bread I baked this weekend and my photogenic cat and grilled cheese.
I was electronically flipping through Real Simple’s kitchen organization tips when I cam across this picture and almost died.
First of all, who actually has that much Le Creuset??? Second of all, I want that much Le Creuset. Which of course immediately led to an internal monologue about what color I should start collecting. It went something like: “Red is so classic, but then everyone does red Le Creuset and do I really want to decorate my entire kitchen around red pots and pans? Because I’m not sure that I want red to feature prominently in my future kitchen’s color palette but then committing to another color seems like such a risk because I’ll have to live with it for the rest of my life and I don’t want to change colors in fifteen years and then have a random rainbow of Le Creuset products…” You get the idea.
In any case, I decided to consult the Le Creuset website and discovered that they have the cutest color profiles. After much debate I think I’m going to go with yellow. It’s cheerful and bright and it reminds me of my childhood bedroom walls.
