{Everyday Inspiration} Electric Circus...

I saw this first video about the collaboration between inventor Fred Abels & puppeteer Mirjam Langemeijer called the Electric Circus, when visiting the handmaderomance blog. Like Evie, I've watched this over & over & wanted to share it. Since then, I've looked up this creative duo's website & stumbled on this quick,  second video along with all of these photos. The Electric Circus inspires me to no end - hope that you like it too! This is just what I needed to watch to help me get to Friday. How about you?

Have you heard of the mini social? It's a great place to find cool bargains for the kiddos in your life. It's an online sale website that offers its members exclusive access to designer brands for mom, baby & child at up to 50- 70% off. Right now there is a bunch of great sales going on & I'm happy to say that klt:works is in the mix! 

There is a variety of goodies on sale too so if you are looking for a klt:bargain, pop on over  here. The klt:works sale ends on Thursday the 4th- just wanted to pass it on. How's your week going?

{Music Monday} Angus & Julia Stone...

I think I've mentioned before that I'm sometimes drawn into a song or a musician by their videos. This would be one of those situations. I'm loving these Angus & Julia Stone videos! Sayer can't get enough of the first one- he particularly enjoys the little elephant that is walking on the guitar. Happy Music Monday

{Good Read} Gift from Finland...

When you watch world events unfold on the news you can sometimes forget that there are random acts of kindness happening minute to minute around the world. They may seem insignificant when measured against some of the large & terrifying things one sees happening these days. However, never underestimate kindness- it does the heart & soul good for both the receiver & the giver. Social networking has made it even more fun to surprise people with kindness. After all, when you write about things that you love all of the time, you are somewhat an open book & the opportunities to connect with like minded people is even greater. Where is this all coming from you ask? Well, I just received this package last week that sort of stunned me really. It came to me in a Marimekko box no less- filled with greatness from Finland. A fellow children's book lover that I connected with through some blog posts about the Red Balloon & Fantastic Mr. Fox sent it to me. We both love the same children's books & she picked up these wonderful books (along with some great Moomin postcards) for me while on holiday in Finland "just because". Nothing like Moomin, Pippi, & the knowledge that someone thought of you, to brighten your day. Thank you Tea

Hope everyone is having a great weekend! Did you do something nice for someone today?
