Happy Friday everyone! Another busy busy week….I started a new assignment at a new agency and it’s been action packed and lots of fun! Despite a crazy week, I still managed to rustle up some fun linkies for you. BUT before we get to that…..allow me to pause for a moment to wish a very HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY to our beloved Miss Dottie!!!! Yes indeedy, this glamour girl is ringing in another year. Dottie, you are simply the best—uber mama, superior friend and the funniest gal this side of the Mississippi!!! I can’t wait to take you out for a glass of something fizzy and fun to celebrate!!

OK friends, on with the links.

1. COOL ART BLOG.

I love Lisa Congden and I love her work. Earlier this year she traveled to Scandinavia and I’m loving her Nordic Adventure Art Journal Series. See them here.

2. COOL APP

Victoria—aka the SF Girl By Bay—always shares the best local San Francisco finds. And now she has an excellent app to help you explore them even more easily. She’s listed all her favorite vintage, furniture, home decor and accessories shops, even local flea and farmer’s markets as well as some galleries and museums. Check out sfgirlbybay’s guide to bohemian modern san francisco for just $1.99. Worth every penny!

6. COOL WALL ART

I was totally obsessed with this  new line of removable wallpaper from Hygge & West. Yes. Removeable. Like giant wall decals. Daniel Kanter of Manhattan Nest did a cool post on his experience (and coincidentally, the art is by Lisa Congden!). Check it out here.

7. COOL FRENCHIE TUNES

I loved this list that Design Mom Gabrielle post together on popular French music (she and her family are famously living over there!). See the full list here.

8. COOL SOUP

Bird and Cleaver are a new favorite—although we’ve been instagram pals for a while now. This dynamic duo love to cook, and take amazing photos. This fresh pea soup looked like spring in bowl! Get the recipe here.

9. COOL MOVIE

I’m a fan of Margaret Keane. Not her later big eyed orphans, but her big eyed waifs from the 60s. I was intrigued to hear Tim Burton will be directing Amy Adams int he bio pic! See more here.

10. COOLEST BANDS YOU NEVER HEARD OF

OMG Coachella! The music festival has reached pretty ridiculous hipster heights. Jimmy Kimmel interviewed attendees and asked them about some completely made up bands. Their responses TOTALLY cracked me up….
