Spring breaking

A child's wardrobe leads to Narnia

A child's wardrobe leads to Narnia. For real.

Spring Break! Or as it’s known in the Snoek-Brown household, the week where we have no excuse anymore to finish projects that should have been finished 3 months ago. 😉

But first! A bit more internet perusing…

“But one of the few upsides of being an adult is that you NEVER have to take the SAT again.”

♥ There’s always an exception, right? This article, “What Happens When A 35-Year-Old Man Retakes The SAT?” had me at its title. I stopped everything I was doing to read it all the way through, laughing uproariously throughout. HiLARious!

♥ This writer got to be up close and personal with the manuscript of Casanova’s memoirs. (Yep, Casanova was a librarian toward the end of his life. You can read my review of the book, Casanova Was a Librarian: A Light-Hearted Look at the Profession, on my Reel Librarians blog by clicking here.) Favorite quote:

“Look!” She held up one of the pages to the window light, revealing a distinctive watermark—two hearts touching. “We don’t know if Casanova deliberately chose this or it was a happy accident.”

♥ This lucky nine-year-old girl has a wardrobe that leads to Narnia! Even though it’s actually a Narnia-themed playroom (see above), that is. still. so. AWESOME. It just makes me feel good that such a thing in this world exists. Well done, parents, well done. Can I come and play, too?

♥ I found not one, but two, fashion-and-reading-related items of interest this week. First up is this lovely Library Atrium Dress, complete with dreamy write-up envisioning this “pocketed frock [as] the perfect companion for a day at the local library.” Note to self: Make an effort to casually insert the word “frock” more into my daily vocabulary.

♥ And last but not least, this post highlights the fine craftsmanship and wit of designer Olympia Le-Tan’s High Fashion Embroidered Book Clutches. Which one is your fave?
