Weekend Reads: Links to the Strange and the Beautiful

What are you up to this weekend, my dears??

* I am going to: attend a wine-tasting and post new items on my Etsy shop.
* I need to: go grocery shopping...and buy my Dad a Father's Day gift. Oops!
* I hope: I will have time to play a game of tennis with my boyfriend and watch "Fingersmith."
* I wish: I could go for a lazy float down the river with some friends and some cold beverages.
* I will probably forget to: read for my dissertation research. OK, so that's more of a conscious choice ;)

And I'm sure I will be doing some blog-reading. Here are some of my favorite recent links. Enjoy:

So thoughtful of you to ask! I'm actually just about to put up a new post- my first in a couple months! :S

I was taking a summer course in Venice, and then took a few weeks to travel in Italy. I was indulgent enough with internet cafes to keep up with my favourite blogs (like yours!), but it was a bit tricky to update my own. I hope to get back on a regular schedule now that I'm home though.

Also, I never got to thank you for the two cute purses you sent me! I brought the darker, preppy shoulder bag all over Italy with me! :)
