Clippings: Day Early
I'm doing my clippings post today, and taking tomorrow off in honor of our Veterans.
+ Working on Saturdays means I miss my favorite Farmer's Market, and I have not been able to get flowers from the market all year long. This is devastating to me, so I am excited for my day off this Saturday. I'm getting inspiration from the amazing, seasonal bouquets featured on the blog Honey of the Thousand Flowers (Kinfolk).
+ Stearns, Carrot, Myrna and I are sort-of beginning to think about considering looking for a house instead of our beloved apartments. To which I say: I require a fireplace, stained glass, gothic ornaments, and a flower room. That's possible in Nova, right? (English Muse)
+ A true lover of sandwiches, but even this "Shooter's Sandwich" intimidates me with its awesomeness and intensity. (The Gaurdian)
+ A couple months ago, Sr. Margarita Aloysious sent me this piece in the Post about that Gaithersburg, MD, Perpetual Adoration Chapel. I finally read it this week. It's quite good. (Washington Post)
+ Heavy Fog by Edward Gordon
+ The Oxford Companion to Beer is on my Christmas Wish List and Giving List. Here's The New Republic's review.
+ What? Art Deco Super Heroes. YES. (How To Be a Retronaut)
+ Joe Carter has his cranky pants on today about the world's most expensive photograph. But I can't blame him. I took almost exactly the same photograph when I was home this summer.Where's my $4.3 million?
+ Awesome People Reading? (Man, I love Tumblr.) (via The Paris Review)
