Happy Friday, darlings! Do you have big plans for the weekend? I’m working on a couple projects, watching more basketball, and baking some treats. I’ll also be getting ready to head to America a week from tomorrow! Yippee!

Today I thought I’d share with you a few articles from around the internet that made me stop and think. Pour a cup of tea, sit in a cozy chair, and have a quiet, contemplative Friday.

See you back here on Monday!

Steve Jobs’ sister gave a powerful eulogy at his funeral. I’ve loved learning that Steve Jobs was such a dreamer – it wasn’t just about the technology, but about the beauty.

Really interesting New York Times article about the possible end of the Etsy era. Word on the design street is that minimalism is trending, and the Keep Calm, Carry On kitsch is on its way out. It’s a stark reminder that the design world is always going to be changing.

What happens when a world-class virtuoso plays for an hour outside a DC metro station, using a multi-million dollar violin. Really interesting social experiment set up by the Washington Post.

And my sister-in-law was featured in Dime Magazine – she is doing incredible work in Zimbabwe. Check out the article here, pages 28-29.
