Starred Items

Many thanks for the kind comments about our time with Stella. I've given her some pats and rubs from all of you. She appreciates it.

I've been out and about, so this is just a quickie post of some interesting things I've starred in my reader or added to my favorites lately.
  • I've seen these in a couple of places, cinemagraphs: part photo, part moving picture. They remind me of Harry Potter. (One more week!)
  • While we're on Harry Potter, Crafty and Devious stitched a Hogwarts Acceptance Letter. I know a couple of boys who'd like that.
  • Those boys in fact will be here this summer. I might try these butterbeer cupcakes out on them. They're definitely getting butterbeer.
  • This egg "instructable" seems like a magical and interesting brunch food. {Craft}
  • Interesting glass etching. {Craft} Good gift for a man. (Or Prisoner fans.)
  • And more man crafts: Father's Day ideas from Martha's Craft Department.
  • "Knock you Naked Brownies" from Ree Drummond. They must be good, the recipe has "naked" in the title. (Also reminds me of carmelitas, an addictive dessert substance expertly made by a friend.)
  • Cross-stitch skull and cross-bones from Cross Me Not.
  • Stitch a souvenir from the City of Brotherly Love.
  • Scrappy fabric bookmark.
  • iPhone sleeve.
  • Here's a pair of shoes to make with all that broken old jewelry. 
  • Not craft-related, but you know I want to be as snarky as these people. (Do not stop reading until you get to the guy who mistakes "comma" for "coma." You gotta love people who don't punctuate the phrase "Fuckin'-A, man.")

Love, love, LOVE the Hogwarts Acceptance Letter. I hope she decides to publish that as a chart. I would definitely buy it. Your sis will love the skull and cross bones.

Hah! Just read through the last link. Too funny! I know that I make spelling errors on FB sometimes when I'm posting from my phone, but holy cow! There are errors and then there is just plain stupidity.
