The weekly "little of this, little of that" feature at Like Mother, Like Daughter!
It's been a busy week around here! These days there are many moms-to-be to be showered, babies to be met, and baptisms to attend. So exciting! I'll be up to such doings today.
I've had the joy of holding more infants in the past two months than I think I'd held in years!
If you, like me, enjoy flipping through pictures of beautiful gowns, I suggest that you check out the designs of Hamda Al Fahim. Just for fun! I just came upon this site and, for the first time in a while, actually sighed over some lovely, truly feminine dresses that I can imagine myself wearing (you know - in a dream world/the fairy tale, and not-six-months-pregnant! version of my life).
This week's links!
- Oh my word if I had the chance to take part in this summer art workshop at Thomas More College, I would be all over it! Any art students/lovers out there should definitely consider applying! The Artist and I would both be envious of anyone who got to attend and study with Paul Ingbretson. This is art from a classical tradition; something you don't find that easily today in our culture.
- Anyone enjoy decorating? History? Paris? Antique treasures? All of the above? Take a look at this Paris Time Capsule Apartment at Messy Nessy Chic. How fun! And talk about the collective memory....
- For a morning mental exercise on a more serious topic, you (and perhaps your middle school or high school-level children/students) would benefit from reading through this study of logic in an abortion argument: thinking through the Fallacy of Frozen Embryos in a Burning Building.
- Calling quilters! I am not (yet) one of you, but perhaps you will be interested to read about this freehand approach to quilting from Threads Magazine. Quilting without the OCD.
- Why the Fuss About Reading Mommy Blogs? I bet that LMLD readers can relate to this post!
- It's plug time! The book on His Holiness from The Chief is here! And a great price on Amazon: A Call to Serve: Pope Francis and the Catholic Future. Of course we are of the opinion that this is the definitive book of its category -- lots of wonderful full-color photos, and great text, of course! And my mom says that the copy she got yesterday is just beautiful.
On a related note: This offer from Catholic Culture : Get an autographed copy!
Hope you're having a lovely weekend!
