    Friday link love

    I have been incredibly immersed in work this week and therefore rather appreciative of those around me with the same mentality.   Here are the posts that I enjoyed the most and I hope you do too… A fantastic letter to the government about micro businesses. Such a wonderful thing when you know others go through the same stuff as it makes you feel so much less alone. A great list of ways to get money for your business. An excellent article on Twitter and its usefulness to small business. What have you this read this week that has stood out from all the rest? Have a Happy Weekend!!

While you amuse yourselves over the thought of my becoming a mini Mary Poppins, check out…

    Gasp, gush, sigh…

    This is what I did when I saw this photo over on etc… and then again when I discovered Garance Dore’s blog (which has been added to the blogroll!).  Especially pertinent as an Illustrator friend of mine is looking for where to go next and this uber creative maven was feeling the same way when she started her blog…Whitney pay attention to this and go read her about page! Thank you Garance for your beautiful views of life!

The shape is even similar…the colors and patterns remind me of the pile of tapestries I still have from my deadhead days and the rest of the bed is white…perfection! photo courtesy of Sara Gilbane Interiors Well I was over there I also saw a peony photo that I thought I would share as well…go figure, peonies caught my eye! photo courtosy of Alison Miksch
