Tweets, Tunes, Telegrams.

Distractions before the weekend: famous photographs reimagined using Play-Doh,


tweets turned into telegrams,


and the ever-crushworthy HAIM, covering Sheryl Crow's "Strong Enough." Love this. (Photo by Bella Lieberberg.)


And three more, just for kicks:
-Culinary curiosities: turmeric tea, and a frozen Kit-Kat cake inspired by Roald Dahl, who consumed the candy daily. (According to Paper and Salt: "He would save their silver wrappers, adding them to a giant foil ball on his desk, where visitors to the Dahl house can still see it today.")
-Speaking of beauty products, this is one of my favorites.
-"What I Won't Tell You About My Ballet Dancing Son."

See you Monday! (Oh, and New Yorkers, come check out Photoville this weekend - it's a pop-up photo exhibition set up inside repurposed freight containers in Brooklyn Bridge Park. You'll love it, I promise.)

I always marvel at the ingenuity of people. Love both the reimagined photographs in play-doh & the tweets turned into telegrams.

Also, a cake made of kitkats?! Oh my gosh. That is awesome! I am so curious about the goe oil. I also really enjoyed the article on the ballet dancing son. Thanks so much for sharing!

I love the telegram pieces - it makes even the most fluffy sentiment seem weighty and important!

I feel just a teensy bit bad for Sheryl Crow - because Haim's version just blew her original out of the water. Also - I hope you've been enjoying their new album on NPR this week:

Great links, Shoko! I love the HAIM song and have always been a fan of the Sheryl Crow version. I giggled a little when the drummer tried to twirl the drum sticks, ha. The Kit Kat cake looks amazing!
