Kiesza does such an amazing cover of Hozier’s Take Me to Church. I love the original so much so I was excited to find her cover.

I’m in love with this print from Worthwhile Paper. I’ve already got ideas on how i’ll use it!

East of the Sun, West of the Moon has been a favorite fairy tale of mine since I was a little girl. I recently downloaded a kindle version illustrated by Kay Nielsen and i’ve been head over heels with the illustrations.

I’ve been pretty obsessed with bees lately (okay for a while now) and I use bobby pins literally every single day so these are PERFECT.

I am so excited that this book is out! I have been following Meredith for such a long time and it’s so nice to see cute crochet projects! Despite telling myself for years that i’ll learn to knit one day I have yet to teach myself. So i’m pretty excited about this!

I died.

This gorgeous work space.

    I’ve never read East of the Sun, West of the Moon, but that illustration is so beautiful. I’m also a fan of that Carl Sagan quote print, and The Black Apple is one of my favorite shops!

    The article about the mother who was arrested while waiting for her family was heartbreaking.
