Weekend Reads: Links to the Strange and the Beautiful

I hope you will all be finding a little bliss this weekend...I am going to find some, somewhere, amidst all the work I have to do!

I'm not sure if you noticed the new icon on the right side, but I have joined the legions on Twitter. So, if you are a Tweeter [is that what they are called?], follow me and I'll follow you...somewhere.

Here are some fantastic links for your weekend reading pleasure. Cheers, my dears!!!

I love the balloon bedspread and light fixture in ze picture.
I reckon the walls would make a tad insane though.

I found us a fellow braindancer last night, her site on tumblr is called: Youneverwastemytime.

Have a lush weekend, I am going to spend mine eating & reading. xxx

I've followed you on Twitter! Excited you've joined. And 30s beachwear - now I wish we still wore that much fabric when going to the beach. I just can't put my heart into bikini wearing.
