Curio Cabinet, number one – the worthwhile reads, oddities, and lovely things that made life richer this week. Or, my collection of pretty rocks and feathers, which I thought some of you might enjoy as a weekly-ish blog series.
Books to screens, although not exactly
Have you heard the news that Amazon is giving Good Omens a second season? As a fan of the book and someone who enjoyed the original series and felt it ended just right, I must admit this gave me pause. My first reaction was dismay, but my second reaction was to hope my first reaction is wrong.
This article a friend shared with me about how Pratchett and Gaiman actually had outlined a possible second book together years ago made me feel better. And I am absolutely excited to see David Tennant and Michael Sheen together again.
4th of July themed ambiance, via YouTube
If you enjoy a virtual fireplace around the holidays, or soothing background music as you go about your day, or sometimes turn a screen on for “company” then you might be as charmed by the Calmed by Nature channel as I was.
Described as “natural scenes for relaxation, focus, and sleep” I enjoy these beautiful vignettes from nature, quaint coffee, houses, and more. I can’t even begin to think of the time and effort it takes to create them. Art can come in many forms, can’t it? I think these are digital works of art.
I’ve subscribed to the YouTube channel and was pleased when they recently directed viewers to their Relaxing 4th of July Ambiance: Summer Night with Distant Fireworks, Crickets, and Fireflies.
Thinking ahead to Halloween
This is the week where I remind you to pick up some extra smoke bombs while you’re doing your 4th of July shopping and stash them away for October.
We like to purchase the assorted color smoke bombs and then set them aside to use when taking our Halloween photos, but the plain gray would still make an eerie, stinky, wonderful background for your photos.
Just make sure to be smart about things and mind the instructions and warnings, okay?
That’s my handful of pretty pebbles for this week, friends. I hope you find some treasures as you go about your days.
I’m not exactly sure where I’m headed with online writing these days, but it was nice to scratch this itch and share today. I’m eager for interesting bits to bring to you next time. Let’s see where this takes us, shall we?
Don’t let the bastards get you down,
