Thursday links & Things I love
It is just 10 days until Christmas?! Oh, time runs SO FAST!
Here in Rome it’s really cold, but we’re blessed with delightful sunny days and breath-taking sunsets! If you’re covered in several layers of clothes, having long walks is really pleasant.
A list of things that made me smile: ♥ text messages full of love from my boyfriend (thanks, free-texts Christmas special offers!) ♥ going to the cinema to see You Will Meet A Tall Dark Stranger ♥ my new Lego storage head (see pics in last Saturday post!) ♥ the Christmas record I worked on a few weeks ago being printed and published! I can’t wait to share some pics with you! ♥ drawing a new card, with a graduate monkey wearing a mortarboard ♥ meeting my teacher to talk about my degree project ♥ the awesome, sunny, neat office where my teacher works ♥ telephone calls from my dad, worried about me being involved in the riots caused by yesterday’s protests: my university is right where the riot took place! (read more here) Luckily, I came back home a few hours before the protest began ♥ planning/dreaming about moving abroad with S. ♥ long emails with new friends about a new, upcoming feature for this blog! ♥ Lastly, I’m planning to buy a compact digital camera with the money I earned with the Christmas artwork: any suggestions? Should I choose Canon or Nikon?
♥ Type is Art is an interesting interactive project that allows experimentation through pieces of the 26 letterforms of our alphabet. Drawing with type? Yes!
♥ Nubby Twiglet on how to make it happen:setting new goals and how to do the first steps towards making your dreams come true. I needed some inspiring words!
♥ Some marvellous illustrations by Cedric Rivrain! Check his fashion drawings!
♥ What do you think of this photoshoot of Kate Moss in Vogue Italia? I usually love her, but I don’t like these photos so much: I prefer her with blonde hair!
♥ Olympia Le-Tan creates clutches that look like old books: so chic!
♥ I’d love to have my cats in one of these Pei Pods!
♥ Santa Claus, please, give me this book!
♥ …and this one too!
Now, it is time to wear my super warm coat and go out!
Have a wonderful Thursday,
