Thursday Three: 11.15.12

1. The most perfect house

I'm home sick from work today, and all I really want is to be as cozy as possible - and this tiny house looks like the perfect place to do it! For the life of me, I can't find any information about this place, but I'm going to make it my life goal to have a house just like it. (Probably with the exception of the antlers hanging at the top.)

Contrary to what my friend Tom thought, this is not a tutorial on how to have warm feet (though I'm sure it would do the trick nicely). Instead, it's a tutorial on how to break in your shoes if they're too tight - and it's incredible! My right foot is just bigger enough than my left that buying shoes can sometimes be a pain, so I'm grateful I found this. It can't work miracles, necessarily, but I've tried this on two pairs of shoes to great effect. Try it out yourself, and let me know how it works!

Chris and I have been on somewhat of a British TV kick, so I felt I would be remiss if I didn't tell you all about Sherlock. In case you couldn't guess, it's a  modern reimagination of the Sherlock Holmes stories. This is the one show I recommend pretty much everywhere I go. Everything about it - the acting, cinematography, writing, everything - is just brilliant. It's funny and suspenseful and has a villain that ranks up right next to Heath Ledger's portrayal of the Joker. There are only six episodes (though they're each an hour and a half), so it's not a huge time commitment - and just see if you can hold back the tears at the end of season 2's last episode. I'd tell you more, but it's better if you go in spoiler-free and just enjoy it for yourself.

And on that note, Chris and I are going to make (more) homemade hot chocolate and watch (even more) Doctor Who. Have a great weekend, everyone! What are you loving this week from around the web?

  10. Foxy, you might just have saved my summer feet! (It's summer here in Australia, they have everything backwards...) One of my feet is longer too. As if having size 9/EU 40 isn't hard enough!

    Thanks for sharing ! (And thanks to Tieka from Selective Potential for her link to your blog that I am delightfully discovering.)
