i sometimes have the urge to buy books just to frame them and put them on my walls forever. who has time for reading, anyway! kidding, i am an avid reader. when not internetting.
consider this an inadvertent gift guide – click on the books to christmas shop yourself into a stupour…
i would have liked to pop into rose bakery when i was in paris recently, which is a popular eatery for lunch & brunch on the weekends (the concept of which is apparently a newish institution amongst parisians.) i’ve read mixed reviews about it online, but i suppose with any really popular place you’re going to have your fair share of lovers and haters.
since i can’t actually go to rose bakery, i might buy their book – the food looks rustic & scrumptious. though i have to admit i’d buy the book based on the cover alone, which is probably not a surprise.

i’m one of those heathens who never ever makes tea in a teapot. i even sometimes leave the tea bag in my cup while i’m drinking it (gasp!) it would probably make more sense to start making tea like a civilized person, as it would mean that i could have 2… maybe 3 cups at a time. this is a good plan.
click on the teapots if you wish to buy them
ps: have you checked out the tea tags group at flickr? yes, tea tag enthusiasts. believe it.
