Weekend Reading

By Kate Riley November 29, 2013

Hello! I hope you enjoyed the feast yesterday, we spent ours with family and stayed up late talking and playing games, it’s tradition! We have family in town right now so I’ll be spending the weekend with them acting like tourists in San Francisco and Sonoma, and trying to squeeze in a little bit of shopping and decorating too.

I haven’t been online much this week due to the hustle and bustle this time of year, but I rounded up a few links I enjoyed, also my articles around the web.

Why simple websites are scientifically better

State to state migration – where the people go.

Portraits blending family members.

Beautiful snowflake images taken with an ordinary camera

I scored 10/12 on this Seinfeld quote quiz, what about you?

  1. Those wonderful Christmas Houses. I remember them as my favorite when a child. Now I wonder what happened to them, they were so fragile. Are those originals or cam you buy similar now?

    • I found them in a local antique store, love them!
      But I’m sure they’re reproductions…

  2. Beautiful winter display!! The houses are so pretty and I really love the bottlebrush trees? Where did you get those? Did you purchase them or did you bleach them?

    • Hi Becca, I found a series of them at a local shop, I want MORE white bottle brush trees!!!
      I did see a smaller set at Joanns but they don’t have the little pearly ornaments on them, but you could glue something similar.
