I am continuing to enjoy the use of pinterest for the random bits of web goodness that I come across as I browse. And of course, checking in on other people’s pins just adds another layer of fun. Here are a few tidbits I’ve recently come across:
Summer makes me appreciate all things green.
I don’t necessarily endorse ruining a book, but book art is intriguing.
Regular irregular art is also intriguing.
Reminders that I should kick my nail care up a notch.
For those of you who have gotten a taste for the semi regular postings of Random Bits of Web Goodness… I want to take you on the next step of my journey in sharing delights.
It started with misc emails that I’d send to people of random items that I found online. And then in an effort to stop spamming folks I began gathering them into a semi regular email. And then, well, I thought if this isn’t a procrastination what is, let’s post them. But it’s actually just a slight bit more of a pain than it’s worth.
Lucky me that I found a new service that lets you save and categorize items with a quick bookmark. And they’re all available for viewing pleasure. You can bookmark, categorize, search, repin… it’s all very easy and pretty darned engaging.
Apparently there are more images on books and nails that I enjoy than I thought but mostly it’s stuff I would share as Web Goodness… Take a look at my categories, feel free to click on any of the category titles to view more or just visit me on pinterest.
Here are a few more delightful items that I’ve come across during my days, and nights, of procrastinating.
I would like to be a pet person, but my apartment and my lifestyle do not allow it, so now and again I dabble with goldfish and what better way than in a special bowl. More options available on Apartment Therapy.
Somehow I can’t make my eyes see what this SF shot merely taken an angle really is.
Why aren’t all buildings shaped like what they sell? More to be found at mental_floss
I am enamored with polish though my professional skills would be challenged with these styles I’m going to give it a go thanks to the beautiful example of YSL polish from 80s Purple.
I don’t know if this bench would go with my panda footstool but it would go perfect somewhere, pointed out by laughing squid.
I may have mentioned that whilst procrastinating I do things other than watch television, or at least sometimes things whilst watching television. What better way to procrastinate than good old web surfing. I often come across random things that delight me in one way or another and following is the first in what may become somewhat irregular posts of things that I thought others might delight in as well.
sfgirlbybay’s weekly post brings much delight, not sure which I like best, the book walker, the chair benches, or the book installations (check link for full gallery of images).
I’ve always been a fan of the hunting lodge head on wall (in a tribute to a beautiful animal sort of way and not a creepy hunt and put a dead head on the wall kind of way) and Apartment Therapy gives some wonderful moose and deer options (more of each at links).
I keep trying to become a person who can just randomly throw down origami, but am not disciplined enough to learn how to do anything except fan fold a napkin. This guy puts me (and really anyone) to shame, check out his story and slide show sadly noting his passing at NY Times (pointed out by Craft).
