Friday Link Hootenany :: Cool Stuff to Browse

Ahh it’s Friday! Wow there were sooo many cool things that caught my eye this week. It was hard to limit it to 10! But hey, it means I already have a jump start on next week right?

1. GROUND CONTROL TO MAJOR DOLL

Ahh, nothing says fun like a droll paperdoll! Dottie sent me this link and we were both cracking up. Not sure which i like better, the Grey Gardens doll or the David Bowie? Hmmm, decisions decisions.

Little Edie/Grey Gardens Paperdoll {note: these aren’t practical paper dolls for playing with, they’re meant to be framed like a piece of art…although you could cut ’em up if you wanted to, I suppose!}

2. CAMPER VAN COOL
The VW camper is the ultimate in iconic cool. Now check out this rad  VW Camping Tent. HAH! I love it.

3. CHITS AND GIGGLES

If you’re like most sassy women, then you probably think Zooey Deschanel is the bees knees. Well little Miss Zooey is now hitting the blogging work. It’s called Hello Giggles and is packed with fun stuff. Founded with her friends, producer Sophia Rossi and writer/Internet personality Molly McAleer, Hello Giggles is the ultimate entertainment destination for smart, independent and creative females. “Everything hosted on the site will be lady-friendly, so visitors need not worry about finding the standard Boys Club content that makes many entertainment sites unappealing to so many of us.” Sounds good to me!

4. SUPER 8 IS SUPER GREAT
I’m a huge fan of the camera apps on my iPhone. (I’m hooked on instagram!) My latest fave is the 8mm App that allows you to film with the wonderful quality of an old 8mm camera. See a sample herehere and here. It’s only $1.99 in the app store!

5. HOW DOES YOUR GROOVY GARDEN GROW?
My friend James, of bleubird, is a fabulous mama. She recently posted about a gardening project she is doing with her kiddos and I’m TOTALLY intrigued!  I think these gro-PODs are super cool. The gro-POD is a “revolutionary yet simple raised bed gardening system” which seems perfect for city folk like us. Imma have to give them a try!

6. SHAKE IT LIKE A POLAROID POSTCARD

These are clever little thangs. Take a photo, insert it into the polaroid postcard sleeve and VOILA! You have a postcard that looks like an old skool photo. You can buy them at 25 to go. The site is cool although it’s all in Japanese and I can’t figure out how to order.


7. SECRET MESSAGE ENVELOPES

While we’re on the topic of letter writing, how charming are these envelopes? The secret message is revealed when youhold it up to a window or light. Sweet.

8. EASY PILL TO SWALLOW

My lovely friend  Virginie is super creative. We featured her awesome nursery a year or so ago. She recently launched a shop with the cutest, coolest little crocheted critters she calls The Pills….I’m really loving this Mr. T!! Those chains are brilliant! We’ll have more from Virginie next week, but for now head over to her shop to see more!

9. YOU LOOK MAHVELOUS

These wee little “Instant Comfort” boxes by Kim Welling are so cute. Matchbox size and filled with sayings like “everything will be ok”, “you look wonderful today” or “you can do it!” they would make a sweet little gift.  Available at her Etsy shop.

10. FAMOUSLY CASUAL

Ain’t nothing better than Awesome People Hanging Out Together. Well ok. It’s better if they’re famous. This site rules.

Have a super happy weekend my friends!

    Thanks for brightening up my weekend…love the polaroid postcards AND the instant comfort boxes. We will watch some A Team as a family this weekend…seriously, I recommend the DVD box sets…it is quality family entertainment (ages10+) and Mr. T is just as amazing as I remember.
    On a sad note, if you read the fine print, the David Bowie paper dolls aren’t really made to be played with and the clothes aren’t tested to fit, etc… not so fun. If I buy paper dolls, I want to PLAY with them. Maybe they’ll be reworked in the future?
    Have a lovely weekend yourselves!

    I find it hard to leave a comment on these friday link posts because I love everything! And I forget what I love as soon as I scroll down and see the next thing. I love that sassy Pippi pic, I love the paper doll prints (I want the Margo Tenenbaum one myself, although David Bowie is a close runner up) I love the little boxes, and I love love love the picture of Colonel Sanders and Alice Cooper. Love!
