Every Friday I will be posting a short list of my favourite things from that week.
Here are this week’s six favourite things:
1. Christmas crafts
It’s not even November yet but in my book it’s never too early to start thinking about Christmas planning.
I’ve bought a couple of small gifts so far but I’m hoping to make a lot too so I’ve been looking online for possible craft projects I could take on.
The Martha Stewart website is a treasure trove of ideas. I love these felt coasters. I fancy a neon colours set too.
2. Literary themed accessories
Last year my friend bought me an Agatha Christie/Typewriter brooch which I love and ever since then I’ve been obsessed with bookish home and outfit accessories.
My favourite at the moment is this library brooch from bookish.
This week I’m reading Our Tragic Universe by Scarlett Thomas. Me and my boyfriend recommended books to each other this week, he suggested this one and I suggested Oracle Night by Paul Auster. Have you read either?
4. A 1998 view of the future
My boyfriend borrowed the Dorling Kindersley’sbook of the Future from the library. Published in 1998 it gives a pretty amusing look at what people thought electronics would look like in the distant ‘future’ (…the year 2000 for Flight of the Conchords fans out there!).
Take a look:
4. Farewell Ceefax
The internet of our youth. Goodbye old friend…
5. LOL of the Week
Continuing the theme of technology – here’s a video of everyone’s favourite actor Paul Rudd (if he’s not, why?) using his special computer.
