It’s hot like fire in Brooklyn, so I’m seeking solace in air conditioning and the internets. Looking at photos of well coiffed people gives me hope that I won’t always look like a hot mess. Only three more months of this crazy summer!

This week, I have many posts for your consideration: plants, Swedish interiors, jazz age styling, needlepoint, and perhaps an adorable animal? 

Read on! 


Refinery29’s Pipeline put together a great piece on the return of needlepoint. ("Don’t call it a comeback!") I just love these style and inspiration collages, don’t you?


I am currently very obsessed with succulents. I’ve started a small collection at my house, and I’ve managed to keep most of them alive! (Not that that’s hard or anything…I just have a bit of a "black thumb.") Apartment Therapy put together a great list of the ten best succulents. Informative and visually stimulating!


This past weekend, revelers gathered for a 1920’s, jazz age lawn party on New York’s Governor’s Island. Styles were off the charts! [Via The Sartorialist]
  


As Desire to Inspire put it, "Those Swedes!" When it comes to design and style, they put the rest of the world to shame. Check out these Swedish interiors.


There’s a new issue of N.E.E.T. magazine, hot off the virtual press! Read it here.

 

 

Boing Boing TV’s Xeni Jardin recently sat down with David Byrne to discuss his latest project, which transforms an empty New York City building into a giant musical instrument. So amazing! View the video for more details.


And finally, Dumpling the tennis playing pup. Adorbs! [Via Cute Overload]

    Those succulents are....succulent! There's another Jazz Age party on Governor's Island in September if anyone cares to join me! It was so fun!

    Succulents you say? I've got about ten different types in my back yard! Benefits of living in the Desert... Want me to send you some pups? Now's the time to transplant! :)
