weekend reading

Hello hello my Friday friends. 

How has your week been? I hope it has been full of long, happy nights, and air conditioned days. Here are some links to provide some weekend entertainment. 

Last week my friends and I had our monthly craft night. I worked on some weaving, which I haven't done in a while, and I forgot how relaxing it is! I'm thinking my next project will these cute woven coasters. Here's the how-to for the tassels

I haven't sewn any garments in a few months and I'm starting to get a little itch for some new handmade wares. The Kalle Shirtdress and Georgia Dress are looking like perfect summer options.

I'm loving this pretty floral artwork.

With the sweltering summer weather, I am looking for all sorts of ways to stay cool. I've been wearing my hair in a classic French braid at least once a week in an attempt to cool off and I'm thinking these Dutch braids are perfect for those mornings when it's just too hot to blow dry my hair. 

Buzzfeed never fails to make me laugh. 

It's no secret that I love the New York Times series Modern Love. Whether it's the essays or the podcast, I find myself identifying with the stories almost every time. I really loved this one this week.

Heartbreak

How cute is this little diy plant stand?!

And finally, something romantic. I have been following mylittleparis on Instagram for a while now, mostly for their cute illustrations. This week they posted this gorgeous poem and I couldn't get it out of my head. I translated it and it is just as perfect in English, especially this line: une nuit à maudire l'arrivée du jour/a night to curse the arrival of the day. Gah. 

Off to dream poetic French dreams...
