Quick Picks – Week 18, 2013
Here’s this week’s quick pick of internet finds. As usual, good things come in threes…
♥ There’s a chill in the air, that little reminder that winter is on the way. If you’re worried about being chilly in your winter wedding, why not consider a faux fur wrap. Polka Dot Bride has searched out 11 for you to consider.
♥ Thinking of a waterside wedding? Queensland Brides has ten venues to inspire you.
♥ Offbeat bride has a really sweet suggestion for wedding favours – mini perfume vials. It would also be a lovely gift for bridesmaids.
♥ Artist Florentijn Hofman makes giant sculptures. His Rubber Duck sailed into Victoria Harbour in Hong Kong today. It has already toured the world, visiting Sydney, Osaka, and Sao Paolo.

♥ Photographer Gregory Crewdson produces large-scale staged photographs of middle-class American life. His production resembles a film set more than a photography shoot, and the results are worth seeing. Check them out at the Institute of Modern Art, on Brunswick Street in Fortitude Valley until 25 May 2013.
♥ Jessica Durrant’s illustrations have joined my wish list. She will be having a 24 hour flash sale on 11 June 2013 during which all of her 8.5″x11″ prints will be 50% off – add it to your diaries.
♥ It’s no secret that I love coffee, and I love The Oatmeal. So when the two come together in a guest post on I♥Coffee it’s a good day. How 99.9% of people judge the quality of their coffee.

♥ Earlier this year I cut the long list of news sites I used to follow out of my rss reader. I found that the stories they were publishing tended to make me unhappy or annoyed, and I felt that I wasn’t actually gaining anything by reading them. Turns out The Guardian agrees with me: News is bad for you – and giving up reading it will make you happier.

♥ I rediscovered the wonder that is the Six Things Shop this week. Be warned visiting this site may prove to be expensive.
That’s it for another week’s quick picks. Have a great weekend!
