Happy Friday! Are you ready for the weekend? I surely am. Here's my favorite things I've come across this week.
Above: My company's namesake, the Happy Cactus, over the past 2 years.
DESIGN / I'm pretty sure I want/ need everything in the Kaufmann Mercantile store.
READ / I'm about to start Empty Mansions: The Mysterious Life of Huguette Clark and the Spending of a Great American Fortune. It sounds fascinating!
EYE CANDY / Oh So Beautiful Paper's round-up of calendars for 2014 features so many great designs - and makes me think about doing a calendar for next year.
SMALL BUSINESS / Interesting article about mentors for people starting second careers. I certainly would be nowhere with Happy Cactus Designs without the help of my mentors.
WATCH / As a former teacher, I am loving Kid President's Pep Talk to Teachers and Student.
LISTEN / Wise Up Ghost by Elvis Costello and The Roots. So good.
