Buffet


This week's links. Enjoy.

Thither
Lovely Jane of Ill Seen, Ill Said has a book out! It's called Thither, and it's a gorgeous collection of her photographs from her recent visit home to Ireland. Go look.

Lily and the Muse & The Next Page
What happens when two fab bloggers get together and start tossing around ideas? Two new amazing blogs happen, that's what! This week Tina of the English Muse and Liss of Daydream Lily launched Lily and the Muse, dedicated to girl-friendly video (or as they poetically describe it, "beauty in motion") and The Next Page, which is conceived as a lovely ever changing collage of beauty and inspiration. I know where I'll be visiting regularly ...

Holiday Gifts With a Story to Tell
Interesting NYT article about the increasing move away from mass produced goods and towards more individual and hand made items, such as what you find on sites like Etsy. Very cool.

Polish Film Poster Exhibition
A great selection of Polish film posters that are beautiful, offbeat and inspiring. Via Design Observer.

Unfortunate Cookie
Interactive game with not so positive fortune cookie messages. Silly fun.

Saveur
Have you checked out the online version of Saveur magazine? Loads of great recipes.

Lushlee
A lovely and inspiring blog that covers fashion, accessories, design and more.

No Country for Old Typewriters
Cormac McCarthy is auctioning off his typewriter. A portable Olivetti purchased in 1963, it was used to write such classics as All the Pretty Horses, The Crossing, No Country for Old Men and The Road. The money will be donated to the Santa Fe Institute, a nonprofit interdisciplinary scientific research organization.

The Art of Manliness
A great site about classic guy stuff — I particularly loved this post on men's hats (and I'm seriously thinking of getting Andrew a porkpie hat). Too cool.

i've had a link on my blog to this site forever, and they have the most incredible images:

http://www.polishposter.com/

images that you don't see in the US (and maybe canada), with a retro feel. i've never ordered from them, so i cannot tell you about their customer service, unfortunately.

i missed your thursday smorgasbord!

Oh wow Lori - I'm so overwhelmed to have my little book included in your buffet! Thank you, thank you, thank you. You're the best!

I've read your blog for about two years now, and am just now finally getting around to telling you how much I enjoy it! I've loved the 'buffet' posts especially, I swear I always find at least one item to forward on to someone as something that I think they'll find interesting. Thank you for sharing your world!
