Happy weekend! Hope it's a lovely one. It's another working one for us here, with stormy weather as well, so I think we'll just be chilling out — reading and watching a movie or two in the evenings is about our speed. How about you?

I admire the long term view of Dutch felt artist Paula Leen and her partner Kees Middendorp in the province of Friesland, 80 miles north of Amsterdam — they lived in their home for 16 years before they finally purchased and renovated it. The results are poetic and beautiful. Read all about it in the Dwell article here.

These vintage Jumping Shoes bring back fond childhood memories watching cartoons of Wile E. Coyote ordering springs from Acme to defeat the elusive Road Runner. I would have loved a pair of these when I was a kid.
