Feeling beachy

♥ A young boy’s dying wish was to see Queen Elizabeth, but when she was unable to, Helen Mirren — currently reprising her role as the Queen in a London play — invited him to her dressing room, and spent an afternoon with him in character. Yep, tears were shed. Helen Mirren is THE BEST.

♥ Judy Blume is also awesome. (I have been lucky enough to meet her in person, twice.This post traces her career, including censorship challenges.

♥ And this cool artist provides floor plan sketches of famous TV homes. And yes, Sam, Monica’s apartment from Friends is included.

♥ This one-day beach library set up in Bondi Beach, Sydney, is a sight to be seen! (But is it wrong that the first thought that popped into my head was, “Oh no, all that saltwater on the book pages? They’ll be ruined!” 😉 )

    Love the picture, for real? If so where? And so cool!

    • Yep, the beach library was for real. I mentioned it was in Sydney (Australia), and I always link up the photos I use with the original source (or at least as close to the original source as I can get). 🙂
