Friday links – short and sweet this week.
A wonderful article: The Solace of Preparing Fried Foods and Other Quaint Remembrances from 1960s Mississippi: Thoughts on The Help by Roxane Gay
Another heady piece – hey, if you’ve ever thought criticizing a piece of work (as racist, misogynistic, disablist, etc etc) as “censorship”, perhaps you should read “Spinster aunt canâ€™t shut the fuck up all of a sudden” at IBTP, where Twisty breaks it down for ye.
An article on gliding dragons in Malaysia; OK, I have to admit, shit like this almost makes me not deeply fearful of Nature.
OK, there’s a certain trend that’s getting a little tiresome (for me), but still, these are some awesome awesome wedding photos!
Make: a cardboard cat rocket. Seriously this would go over so big at our house. Not just with the cats, but with Ralph, Phoenix and Nels constructing it.
Washington tree-ripened peaches are here! And here’s how to make pies from them. P.S. I also have the ear of a state-winning pie champion when I have pie questions. Pretty cool stuff.
Free swatch day at Spoonflower! Did I design & submit a swatch? WHY YES I DID!
Fun! A cross stitch manicure from The Daily Nail – a really cool blog project, too.
Homemade NKOTB sweaters from the 90s (and a little V. Ice), as compiled at Craft, and knit & blogged by Joanne Conklin. So much fun!
I sent this to my brother and he said it wasn’t funny. But I think just about EVERY SECOND OF IT REALLY, REALLY IS.
& finally: So. Adorable. & sweet.
