Wrapped in Plastic

A few things I love this week:

This Virgin of Guadalupe ring my friend Denise gave me. Apparently she got it from a quarter machine somewhere. I should check out quarter machines more often!

from BookHouse Creations on etsy
As I have said before and will more than likely say again, I am a bit obsessed with Twin Peaks. This charm bracelet is so amazing.

This book is funny and scary and quirky and fun. It takes place in the near future, where books are considered artifacts and people spend more time communicating via handheld devices than they do actually talking to one another (or "verballing," as Shteyngart says in the novel). Shteyngart is definitely a gifted satirist. I can't speak for Kurt Vonnegut, but I kind of think he would dig this book.

And some links to check out this weekend:
  • The Dainty Squid is a fun little blog full of cute clothes, DIY tutorials, yummy recipes, and adorable cats. Kaylah was just chosen to be Modcloth's Blogger of the Moment, and I can't think of anyone who deserves the title more.
  • Homesick Texan makes me hungry. This blog, full of incredible recipes, is like food porn to me. I wish I could hire Lisa as my personal chef and have her cook every one of my meals for the rest of my life. (Okay, I might be exaggerating a little, but seriously, I could go for some Ancho-Chile Shrimp Quesadillas right now.)
  • The papernstitch blog is a huge source of inspiration to me. For creative interior decorating ideas, tons of DIY tutorials, and even advice on how to run your own business, look no further.

That's all for this week. See you Monday!
