Links of Note.

Going away this weekend to visit my lovely mom, dad and dog on Vancouver island. Hope you have a splendid weekend and to kick start it -- take a look at some of my favourite links for the week.

Why not take a look at the Comox Valley Guide from Design Sponge. It is where I'll be headed this weekend.

Focused on healthy eating? Check out this excellent blog written by a friend of my sister.

Not so focused? Maybe consider making this chocolate amaretti cake from the cutting edge of ordinary.

Enter this giveaway to win an awesome calender from Be Happy Now who does some vibrant illustrations.

Need a bit of summer. Try this roasted vanilla orange juice. Found via ursa minor.

An incredible writer passed away this week: J.D. Salinger.

And please if you haven't yet, do yourself a favour and enter our giveaway for a marvelous book on making macarons.

Bye for now!

Our security guard told me about Salinger's passing. I was shocked. I also made the mistake, for whatever reason, of calling Salinger a "she". I think the security guard now thinks I'm the village idiot. In any case...very sad to hear about his passing. Rest in peace.

Sometimes I refer to my blog as a team. Me and the blog. Not so lonely that way!

Thanks for stopping by my blog - it helped me find you and I'm so glad I did. You have an amazing blog - you've already pointed me to some great new finds.

Enjoy Vancouver Island - one of my favorite places on earth. I so miss living in that part of the world.

I can't believe Salinger died. Catcher in the Rye is one of my favorites...
