Tatte Cookies and Cakes

This cute little place is in Brookline Mass. The menu is a mix of mediterranean and middle eastern inspired pastries. I would love to decorate my kitchen and dining room like this.

Quirky collections

I found this article about what drives people to collect, when collecting is a healthy hobby, and when it becomes extreme. I wonder if any of us would run around the city wearing an orange cape and calling ourselves Captain Beany? :)

52 cupcakes by the Cupcake Queen

The Cupcake Queen started this blog when she embarked on a mission to bake one cupcake a week for a year. The hitch was that she had never baked before. Through her blog she narrates her failures and successes and lets her audience in on how the cupcakes tie in with what's going on in her life. Birthdays, new jobs, sports championships. And her photography is beautiful. Check out her blog at

D.C. Tourism

I have been doing a bunch of research for my booklet project and came across two great D.C. tourism sites. is really user friendly and easy to navigate depending on what interests you. For example, if you were, say, a foodie, the page would be filled with current and relevant foodie events, restaurants to visit, etc. Cultural Tourism D.C. is another great site. It points you to D.C.'s historic and cultural attractions. When you're looking for something to fill all those free Saturdays you have coming up, check them out!

Fondation Maeght

Check out this link to the Fondation Maeght. This is the modern art museum in Southern France where I picked up those two illustrated books from class. They house work from Chagall, Miro, Braque and Giacometti. The outside of the museum is even more beautiful than the galleries within. The image at left is from the back of the museum. There are some even better images at this web site.
