It’s been a hard week, over here in my corner. Little things went wrong, work was frantic, I was told the sore ankle I’ve been ignoring for the last 2 weeks is tendonitis; the shortness of breath I’ve had for the last few days isn’t asthma, but a mystery yet to be solved.

But all that is nothing, because on Wednesday Thomas the Wonder Cat, the Great Black and White Hunter, purrful, wonderful beloved family pet died. And even though he’s lived with my lovely brother for the last year and a half, and even though we were expecting it to happen soon, because he was, after all, an elderly eighteen-year-old gentleman, I still feel so sad.

Thanks heavens for good, crazy, funny and beautiful things on the internet.

::: Whenever I feel low, I know for sure The Bloggess will cheer me up. This is going to be my new screensaver, come Monday morning.

::: Kate Spade (a favourite of mine) has teamed up with Florence Broadhurst (another fave). It’s a stylish collaboration, to be sure.

::: The 2011 World Press Photo Award images are astoundingly moving. (via Angie Muldowney)

::: This story is magic, in more ways than one.

::: I prefer the beauty of chaos over ugly perfection, don’t you?

::: I like this short film. It features a strumming guitar, skateboarding, handmade bags, and multiple handsome bearded men making the aforementioned bags. It’s all good.
