My husband and I finally saw Star Wars: The Force Awakens this afternoon. The movie was even better than I expected. I was afraid to get my hopes up too high, but I really enjoyed the film. I’m so glad we finally had time to go see it in the theater.
Anyways, here are some links from my adventures around the web this week:
This is Colossal visits the Forbes pigment collection at Harvard, a collection of “2,500 pigment samples placed in tincture bottles and housed behind tall glass cabinets.”
Carolina Stitcher completed the “Cottage Charm Stitcher’s Pocket” kit by Miladys Needle, and the finished piece is stunning. Love it so much.
Melville House has a list of 100 essential books as recommended by David Bowie. He liked the classics.
The Needlepoint Book by Jo Ippolito Christensen is now an app.
“From the start, Cameron’s work was lambasted in the press. And the biggest cause of criticism was the thing that, ironically, would turn out to be the hallmark of her style and her enduring fame: her mistakes.” Nice article from the BBC about the work of photographer Julia Margaret Cameron.
Video of the Week
Since I have already mentioned David Bowie, this week’s video is dedicated to another great artist we lost this week — Alan Rickman. This is from a scene from one of my favorite films of his, “Truly Madly Deeply.”
