We had an absolutely fantastic time in Chapel Hill this weekend, about which I will likely write more later. Cristina and Eric’s wedding was fantastic–like a big, sweaty UNC/IV reunion–and they were so beautiful and happy. As we drove away, Guion and I remarked to each other that it felt like we had just been married all over again. We’re just so thrilled for them.
But, onto today’s business. Your weekly dose of Snax:
Never Let Me Go (to a bad movie): Kazuo Ishiguro’s chilling novel is coming out as a film! Check out the trailer here, via the New Yorker’s book blog. Even though it has Keira Knightley in it, I’m optimistic about Carey Mulligan’s presence. Looks good, doesn’t it?
Lego sculpture. Mmm. Now this is real art. (Regretsy)
Surreal type. It’s really beautiful. (Thoughtful Day)
Sneak Peek: Best of Dogs. Of course I love this. It’s Design Sponge’s aggregation of all of their best dog photos from over the years. It seems that people buy dogs that look good in their homes… (Design Sponge)
Beach comber. Photographer Brian Ferry is at the beach and I hope he never leaves. These photos are full of magic. (Brian Ferry)
Past & Present: Handwriting and Flourishes. Oh, to write like this! (Design Sponge)
Dear magic hour. Courtney showed me this blog, which I positively love. Leah writes a handwritten thank-you note every day to someone or something, and then posts it on her blog. She must be one of the happiest people alive. And seems so sincere, too! This is a thank-you note to “the magic hour.” (THXTHXTHX)
Bride and Doom. Oh, WHY didn’t we get this in time for the weddings this weekend? Such a shame. (Regretsy)
