Link Love Friday

The Princess has been off school for a week and yet summer is failing to arrive. It’s too cold to play in the pool and kids are looking at the window with much longing. I can’t blame them. The sun is bright and the water looks wonderful, but it’s just not getting warm enough to play. At the community band concert last night I wore jeans, a sweater, shoes AND socks and my teeth were still chattering by the time we left (should have tried talking Big Daddy into a hot chocolate instead of a milkshake ;o))

This time last year, it was bathing suits and rosy cheeks

Don’t get me wrong. I don’t mind the cooler weather. I’m not a sun worshiper. I don’t like to sweat. I don’t like sitting outside in the hot stagnant air, so I actually don’t have any personal complaints about the weather, but it kind of sucks from the kids standpoint. However it is fun Friday so we have something to look forward to.

And now without further ado….Link Love Friday! YAY!

Preschool Playbook
is chock full of ideas for the under five set. I’m sure there’s a thing or three there that would entice the Princess as well

The design concept on this milk cartons featured at Lovely Package nearly made me giddy. The bold colors and great use of type as design is what done me in. In fact, the entire site is pretty cool with lots of great pictures.

I really liked this coffee cup cookie cutter at Cool Shit You Can Buy and like Lovely Package, lots of other great items as well. I like the USB classic Nintendo controller. Even though I have no actual use for one.

I don’t care what you think about Martha Stewart. I’m making this table runner. At least once. Possibly more.

These adorable hedgehogs at dollar store crafts might have to make it into a Fun Friday rotation.
People are suggesting using them for dusting, but I’m thinking over how to use them as bath mitts.
Ooooh. Back to the Future trivia. I’ve heard a horrible rumor that they want to remake Back to the Future with Zac Effron as Marty. I don’t have to tell you how horrible this is, right?

    Ooh, good idea with the bath mitts. I wonder if the microfiber would soak up too much water? Although, they are made for washing cars, so they’re meant to be in water… hmmm!

    I hope you find some fun things to do with your princess. Thanks for putting me in you Friday Link Love.—I know what you mean about the weather. Here it is 2nd week of June and nothing. I have seen more rain these past two weeks than I have had the first 5 months.
