Saskia Nickles’s Fine Fine Books is a German-based picture book blog with a focus on gorgeous illustration. It’s an absolute treasure of very fine international books. They’re always beautiful. They’re always unusual.

 

“I always prefer the weird and off beat books to the mainstream brand named ones.”

BLOG #2: Mr. Printables

Mr. Printables is THE place to find free, printable templates for personal or small classroom use. Printables of what? Amazing crafts, toys, puzzles, and other stuff like that. That doesn’t describe them well enough though—they’re modern, colorful, fun, and define the world playful.

BLOG #3: Thirsty for Tea

My friend Bonnie is also an amazing food blogger at Thirsty for Tea. She made an incredible The Little Prince cake that’s a must see along with miniature quilted petit fours to go along with it. If you like food or tea (yes, please!), this is one classy, creative place to visit. (Have I ever mentioned that as a general rule I always drink tea when at my computer?)

BLOG #4: Handmade Charlotte

This blog’s all about kids and crafts and DIY. It’s where you go for how to turn a cereal box into a constellation light box. Or cool stuff to do with ice. See what I mean?

A classic literature and culinary education by Cara Nicoletti who is a butcher (expect some meaty recipes), blogger, writer, and cook. She’s made a Harriet the Spy tomato sandwich. And whipped up Where the Red Fern Grows cornbread. (That book. Oh, that book.)
