a new friday feature round here - 16 items 'round internet way that i'm digging. not an original idea, but fun to curate all the same. wonder if i can manage to narrow it down to 16 each week without cheating. maybe i should go with the dirty 30 instead? too much?

1. i don't really know what it is exactly about this photo, but i've been in love with it over the past few days. it mellows me. a crocheted afghan, brown carpet, and a brown plaid couch - all childhood familiars. via yenda on flickr

4. if i every move back to mississippi i'll be living in my grandfather's house which he built himself - it's entirely done in the prettiest dark wood which i love (and my mom would never allow anyone to paint as one of the conditions of living there), but sometimes makes it hard to think of cheery decoratings schemes to go with. these photos are a good starting point for ideas - and i've always been a fan of art resting on the floor rather than on the walls. via bohemian hellhole.

4. this post over at cheap opulance on the duke of windsor. had no idea the duke was so stylish - his pattern mixing is pretty on point. which brings me to my new favorite website...

5. bangable dudes in history. warren oates, glenn gould... all my crushes are dudes who are long gone - so this site is right up my alley. plus it has pie charts. and they're funny.

16. this photo also has strong childhood references for me. the etched glass pitcher, wooden cabinets, the floral wash rag, and i can almost smell the scent of dish soap coming form the sink. plus there's something about her that reminds me of my grandmother, aunt marsha, and granny all rolled into one. via myparentswereawesome.


i encourage you to check out all of the original sources - you'll probably find some other great things there, too.
