Frilling Friday 4/8/11

Happy Friday!  Time for some fun links:

I want to go see this exhibit (they’re made of paper!):

My friend here in SF, poet Sunnylyn Thibodeaux, has a new book of poems out entitled Palm to Pine; go buy!

Wanna know how to make ice cream with only one ingredient and no ice cream maker?

More tips on managing your wardrobe.

Mine too
.  But, I will scoff at you if I find out you haven’t read the book.  A lady sitting next to me in the movie said, “Oh no is he going to be dead?”.  ohmylord.  scoffityscoffscoff. You honestly didn’t read the book before you came here today? come on.

I’m loving these colorful dining chairs with the white table – inspired! (via here).

What do you think?  Can you rock these hot pants?


How intimate, How resourceful, How Tiny!

So I was getting sortof sick of seeing this poster in interior photos all over the place (for instance). Until I read the history of it, which does make it more interesting.  But I still think it’s getting a bit overdone, no?  Maybe it’s sortof like my Christo and Jean-Claude poster that I had before it was cool to have a Christo and Jean-Claude poster. But now it is, so it isn’t anymore. Or maybe it still is.

I really love Liz’s roundup of crafty/DIY projects for spring; I want to make them all.

I always like to have a fun desktop wallpaper that I change frequently.  Check these out.  I currently have Gnome.

I wish I wish I wish I would have known about these baby journals when I was shopping for a baby book.  Until now, I thought all baby books were lame, including the one I have (ugh so cheesy).  In the end I most just write things down in a little moleskine notebook anyway (such as: guess who rolled over yesterday while I was making tea in the kitchen.  I missed it. Boo.).

West Elm’s new kitchen line has been getting rave reviews in the blogosphere; I’m doing some raving myself.  Just look at these porcelain salt and pepper shakers:

Have a happy weekend! Got any FRILLING Friday plans?

I have a FRILLING it’s gonna be good…

By

Girls, I have an absolutely FRILLING announcement. The major motion picture, Jane Eyre, hits theaters THIS Friday. Jane Eyre. JANE EYRE! 

I’ve already re-read the book for the momentous occasion, and if it’s anything as satisfying as the 2005 version of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, I’ll be simply FRILLED. 

If you’ve never read the book, need to be refreshed on the plot, or are simply waiting in suspense like me, GO! Watch the trailer now, and then entertain yourself with the story in pictures: 

Jane argues with Mrs. Reid.

Jane saves Mr. Rochester. 

Bertha Mason rips Jane’s veil. 

Jane leaves Thornfield. 

Thornfield burns to the ground.

Jane and Mr. Rochester reunite!
