This was a short work week — one that I spent mostly with family and friends. I don’t have many links for you from around the web, but as always, there were a few fun things I’d noticed, and they are below. I also have a giveaway and lots of Babble links to share, and then I’m off. Enjoy the weekend, everyone!
Dressers for dudes. “Simple and wide. Like your mom.”
Do you sign your emails xoxo? (I have done it, occasionally, but it’s far from a regular occurrence and is reserved for people I know and have corresponded with previously.)
These photographs of nude dancers are made by combining 10,000 individual photographs to show fluid motion. Amazing (and SFW).
Switch up the decorations you’ve already put up to make them New Year’s Eve party-ready.
This is the most interesting bookshelf I’ve seen in a long time. So cool.
Need something pretty to fill up that awesome bookshelf? Try this colorful series of books.
For good measure, how about one of these literary prints? (I’m especially partial to the Anne of Green Gables quote.)
This week, enter to win a $75 credit to Wallpaper for Windows. Good luck!

Hi Nicole, one of the links doesn’t appear to be working. Just thought I’d let you know.

Ha, that article about xo made me feel old and crotchety. I sign off with “kisses” to my family, but I would never use xo in general. And I hate seeing it in blog posts; it’s one of my pet peeves. I am so old.

I laughed so hard at “Simple and wide. Like your mom.” Perhaps the funniest thing ever written about a dresser.

I am also old…and I always end emails to friends xoB (for Becca, my nickname). I never knew it was trendy, its just what I did. OH MY GOD!! I’M OLD AND TRENDY!! I die.

and can I just say that this sentence ” Like Victoria Beckham is in need of a sandwich, I am in desperate need of a dresser.” makes me want to kiss something.

Great list of articles, the photographs of nude dancers are amazing!

wish these give-aways were for Canadian followers too – we get left out all the time!

I don’t work for these people or anything, but when I saw the fox bookend it reminded me of your blog and thought you’d enjoy seeing this: http://www.stylecollective.com.au/juniorstyle.asp?idcontent=1257
Have a Happy New Year!

I could not help but think of you when I came across this globe the other day:
Undoubtedly, you have the perfect house for it!

I got a box of Cynthia Rowley Band Aids in my Christmas stocking! Sequin print band aids! Why should the kids have all the fun? :)
