How neat are these retro-style travel posters from NASA? Released by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, the posters invite you to “envision a day when the creativity of scientists and engineers will allow us to do things we can only dream of now.” The best part? You can even download the posters for free! Who knows…with all the progress scientists have made on Mars, a trip in a rocket to a distant planet might not be such an “alien” notion one day! Which one is your favorite, friends? xoxo
Three Fun Things For Halloween
With the year’s spookiest holiday just two short days away, I suppose it’s only appropriate that the weather matches that same vibe/feel. But have no fear! The Internet has been nailing it this week with a bunch of fun Halloween-themed posts. Here, three great home, decor and food finds, starting with Remodelista’s round-up of darkly moody houses — they sort of remind me of that one scary house on the block that you were always afraid to stop at for candy…
Yahoo! surveyed readers to answer that all-important question once and for all: What is your favorite Halloween candy? I’m not at all peanut butter cups come out on top — they’re my favorite too! You? Sadly, it looks like licorice didn’t get much love…
…and this gorgeous trick or treat crescent moon silver moon decor ($57 from Etsy shop SlippinSouthern)
Now if you’ll excuse me, a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup is a-calling my name (and yes, I did just use the word ‘a-calling’)! Are you all set for Halloween, friends? Got your costume picked out? I’d love to hear! xoxo
Vintage Airline Posters
Summer strikes again: These vintage travel posters are filling me with some serious wanderlust this afternoon! Who wants to hop on a jet plane with me?!?!?!? xoxo
P.S. Remember Mohawk Airlines from Mad Men? 🙂
P.P.S. Travel posters and city posters.
Found: 6 motivational posters
Have I ever told you how obsessed I was with Friday Night Lights back in the day? I never missed an episode, and Coach Taylor never failed to inspire me week after week. Even though most of his advice was directed at his band of rag-tag football players, so much of his sage wisdom could also be applied to life in general…
This is just the sort of motivation I needed on a Monday! Do you have a favorite quote, friends? Were you a big fan of the show? xoxo
Today’s giveaway is from Renee from Grace365, her Etsy shop of inspiring prints. The Michigan-based artist creates everything from lyrical prints to quotation prints and even offers custom prints. In several areas of my home, instead of hanging one photo or piece of art, I’ve created gallery walls or even just small clusters. I like to mix and match personal photos with quirky or inspiring artwork. How neat is that?
She’s giving one reader her choice of downloadable print. The instant download will include two (RGB and CMYK) 8×10 inch, high-resolution JPEG files that can be printed online or at your preferred local print shop. Which one would you choose? I’m loving this one and this one. And of course, you can’t go wrong with this one for the holidays!
