It must be a long weekend somewhere in the world ...

And because it is then it's time for a holiday reading guide. OK OK I'll fess up that I've been so busy today helping a friend with some art pieces for her new place that I had no time to sort through all the links that came in for WINKS. Perfect excuse to spread the love and introduce some of the blogs I've lurked on lately.

This is a long weekend here in France, Toulouse. The 14th is national fiesta, so 4 days week end mid of july. What a lovely moment to attack la bastilla !

Hey Jo!

Great blog as always. As a design student I must admit I refer to your blog daily, especially since I can't afford no magazines at the moment.

Great weekend readings. Seesaw has been one of my favorites for a while now :)
