And we’re back

Hello once again! I’ve returned from a relaxing and educational trip to Athens and Crete, and I’m now slowly making my way into real life again. To ease my transition and to give me time to finish the lesson planning that I didn’t do during the week, I’m going to be lazy and shower you with links from the big pile of posts waiting on my blogroll when I got back. Enjoy!

Woah, look! Its a Hungry Caterpillar cake! hungry-caterpillarOn Monday, I ate 1 delicious cupcake. On Tuesday, I ate 2 delicious cupcakes. On Wednesday, I ate 3 delicious cupcakes…Well, may I should leave the writing to Eric Carle, and I’ll definitely leave the cake-making to Lyndsay at Coco Cupcakes. This hasn’t yet appeared as a Sunday Sweet on Cakewrecks, but I’m sure it’s only a matter of time.

Caustic Cover Critic has a post about the new Vintage Classics cover for Wind in the Willows.windwillowsIt was the winning artwork from a Vintage contest and was done by a 12-year-old. Yes, a highly talented 12-year-old that can paint much better than I can. And, jealous as I am of this prodigy, I quite like the idea of kids doing the artwork for children’s classics, and I love this cover.

Eisha at 7Imp had this link in her Kicks yesterday. Sur la Lune Fairy Tales publishes annotated fairytales online as well as fairytale-themed books for young readers. And they have a CafePress store filled with fairytale stuff and of course, lots of Arthur Rackham-inspired notebooks, coffee mugs, even shoes! As a research assistant I once got the wonderful assignment of finding Rackham artwork online, and since then I can’t keep myself away from sites like this.

From the pile marked “Happy!” (and from FindingWonderland) comes this fantastic video of the Sound of Music in the Antwerp train station.

Why am I never around when things like this happen?
