these ginger sweets are awesome and quite spicey. from the chinese shop in town.
then this incredibly strange cat stationary arrived in the post for me, from a childhood friend living in korea who knows i like lolcats. Choo Choo Season II (they clearly have ‘seasons’ within their stationary series) is done with such detail and filled with delightful choo-isms one feels the need to warn the folks over at Hello Kitty. i spent about an hour laughing about it. a good way to start a week.
and this is lauren beukes and matthew brown’s kitchen – stunning, though the whole house is stunning.

rad sticker on shirley’s locker
naughty pens painting by james b hannah, found at paige’s place
chandelier, also at paige’s place. stunning, is vintage, i ❤ it.
this is a waterproof book especially for summer by the pool – you can wet it and drop it in the shallows and still read it, rocking. last summer i managed to drop Shantaram into the pool twice, so it bloomed like a flower and became unreadable. although you have to have wrists like a man to handle that book.
