My favorite finds are particularly random this week. Hope you enjoy!
Here's something Naomi M. shared with me ages and ages ago, and John actually saw it first, and loved it so much that he BOUGHT it, and then I forgot to mention it to you guys:
Oh, and get this: you can actually see the entire book on Cantrell's DeviantArt! Just start here, and click [next] at the bottom to go forward.

- And now, two Shetland ponies wearing hand-knit wool cardigans:
