Friday Favorites



1. Cardamon Marshmallows from whimsyandspice
2. Shadows bracelet by theGlassOnion
3. Felted wool bowls from papaververt
4. Basset Hound Puppy from SharonMontrose

These Friday Favorites make me so happy. I can't get over the puppy--this is when I wish on all my lucky stars that some day I find myself in a location that would allow for such a distraction!

So, I was thinking yesterday, after reading your comments on the self portrait idea, would you be interested in sharing your portraits with me here at Red Otter? If you are, just shoot me a quick email* and I'll give you some of the details. Basically, if I get any sort of response, I'll post one entry every week and share a little about the artist, based upon what they would like to share or not. I feel so strongly about the idea (gathering the things that are indicative of you and snapping a photograph of them), I can't tell you how neat it would be to get to know you more! I will share my self portrait next week to start us out.

In the mean time, I wish you all a marvelous weekend!

XOXO

Happy weekend you too! I adore your friday favorites. That puppy is SO cute! You know, we have a new member in our family: a tiny little black kitty, with blue eyes, that we found in the street. She has no name yet... xo

You found cardamom marshmallows and you didn't email me?! Actually I think I had these years ago at Jean-Georges. I saw this website and thought of you. http://mila-loveology.blogspot.com/2008/11/big-interior-post.html

Love the idea and think it is not only a self portrait, but a self discovery. In!

Tyler said...

that puppy! my jaw just dropped. truly just about the cutest thing i've ever seen. felt bowls are a fabulous second. and i do love the idea of a 'self portrait'. what a nice way to take a moment to actually think about ourselves and what nourishes us. brilliant.

I love the idea of the self portraits, I'll try to make time to do that for sure (work is draining me lately), if not I look forward to seeing the others. :)
