Friday Finds December 2017

As a long time lover of purple, I’m very excited for Pantone’s 2018 color of the year- ultraviolet!

I don’t think you can make a great grilled cheese without it, but what the heck is really in American cheese?

In praise of Anne of Green Gables  (and girls who ask too many questions, of which I am proudly in that category). I recently listened to the book on my commute and was reminded all over again why I love it.

I love all things related to the Muppets, including Emmett Otter’s Jug Band Christmas, which turns 40 this year!

My mother’s side has lots of Dutch farmers and many of the older generation still wore wooden clogs to do work on their farms, so this article about 19th century Dutch farmers ruining their feet from clogs was intriguing!

Our family gave up giving gifts to each other about 3 years ago and it was the best decision we ever made. I enjoyed reading this author’s perspective on no-gift Christmas too and this one on the joy of a simple Christmas.

Dressing fashionably while protesting.
