WINKS

Posted on Sat, 24 Jan 2009 by midcenturyjo

It’s Australia Day on Monday. Picked up a few packets of our “national dish” to celebrate.

WINKS – weekend links. Here we list what has come in during the week, things we’ve found and things we think you’ll want to see. If you’d like to see your blog or website featured email us and if we think it fits with our readers we’ll link you. So what’s in this week?

 

    • Lora Carr emailed us to let us in on one of her favourite artists and OMG Kim and I are so glad she did! Memphis artist, Johnny Taylor is my new crush. Must have his art!!!

    • Adam Brown from Etsy emailed. “In the spirit of love giving, Etsy has created a project called Special Delivery. In a nutshell, this Valentine’s Day, we’re teaming up with Citymeals-on-Wheels to bring nutritious meals, handmade greeting cards and companionship to thousands of homebound elderly New Yorkers. Our goal is to collect 18,000 greeting cards, one for each person that Citymeals services. Then, on Valentine’s Day, several of us will be volunteering at Citymeals, delivering said meals and cards, and spending some time with our elders to help brighten their day. To reach our goal, we’ll need as much help as possible. We’ve created a badge and a Flickr group to help publicize our efforts. You can read more about the project here.” Spread the love!

Thanks for posting this, esp. the link to Lushpad – I’ve been searching for some new (to me) chairs and furniture for my home.

Thank you sooooo much ladies! It was really wonderful of you to link Pure Green! I got tons of traffic as a result! – now I just need people to leave me some comments! :-> Keep on comin' by!

Great Line up. An Ozzy friend had introduced me to TimTam’s before – they are the yummiest – and extremely addictive!

Back in the late seventies I bought two of those rope chairs at Pier One (when they really were a wonderful import store) and I just loved them. I got rid of them to get “real” furniture and have regretted it ever since.

love the postcups

Thank you so much for the mention!

Wow! I love that pouf! Thanks for sharing.
