Our favorite finds from the internet this past week.

Dot  (AtticandBarnTreasures.com) – We’re so excited! The season of eating is here! Now for the wine – hmmm. I need a little brush-up on pairing wine with different foods. Join me here.

JD (ThirdShiftVintage.com) – I stumbled on an article this week and I honestly am not sure how I feel about it. It’s about a Roomba vacuum that you can now control with an IFTTT “recipe”. I’m all for technology (I embrace it actually), and I do use several IFTTT “recipes”, but having a vacuum zip around the house on its own, and now automated with an app, seems rather bizarre to me. How about you? Would you like a self-propelled vacuum to clean your home?

Laurie (NextStageVintage.com) – If you celebrate Christmas, you probably have your favorite holiday movies. The Rotten Tomatoes list of the top 25 Christmas movies has some I’ve never heard of, some I didn’t think of as Christmas movies and a giant error –#25 and #3 should be flopped. Are your favorites on the list?

Linda (SelectiveSalvage.com) –  I view the buying & selling of vintage as one form of recycling & reusing. But the Portuguese artist Bordalo II has taken the concept to a whole new level with his exhibition of animal art made from trash. See if you agree with me that his work is repurposing redefined. 

Mary Ellen (AuntHattiesAtticVintage.com) –  We have a dear friend who has collected a small but very interesting collection of mourning and lovers jewelry that hold locks and braided constructions of hair. TOKENS OF ETERNAL LIFE: LOCKS OF HAIR IN COLLECTIONS I would love to have had locks of my parents’ hair. Whose would you desire? 

Pam (VintageRenude.com) –  I love when people come up with creative ways to interpret old ideas. If you’re anything like me, you were fascinated by flip books as a kid.  Here is a fun new take of this old idea.  Giant flip books.

Tina (GirlPickers.com) –  What do you get when you combine 910,000 matchsticks, 26 gallons of glue and 2500 hours of labor?  Why the Millenium Falcon from “Star Wars” of course!

  1. Dot, I loved the rules for pairing wines with food. They are simple enough that you don’t have to be a “oenophile” (a refined version of “wino”) to follow them. 🙂

    Thanks for sharing the articles this week, everyone. I enjoyed them all.
