much love, monday

Happy Monday!
Here are a few things that I love this week.

tolkien quote
this Tolkien quote print

Speaking of Tolkien, I found this photo the other day and laughed for a good five minutes.  And now it's my avatar picture on Ravelry to show my Team Precious spirit and just because it's so ridiculous and fantastic.
Joss and Main Coralie bed
the Coralie bed from a Joss and Main event earlier in the week-- it's vintage-inspired but not fussy, I just love it.  It's no longer available, but when I'm in the market for a new bed, I'm going to try to find a similar one.  And it's going to have to be bigger than my current bed, because Bucky and Cocoa somehow take up the entire right side.

If you haven't checked out, it's worth a look.  The actual point of it is to create a personalized daily page with articles and photos based on your personality, but honestly, I spend enough time on the internet as it is and I don't really want to add another thing to look at every day.  The introductory quiz was interesting, though-- I think my results were extremely accurate.  If you take the quiz, I'd love to hear what you think of your own results!
