Bookish Monday: Polpo.
Oh, this is such a lovely cookbook from London's Venetian-style Polpo restuarant. Wherever you prepare the recipes, you'll feel like you're in the famous floating city.

(And stay tuned for a guide to dressing for the Inauguration season...)

Bookish Monday: Of Flying Marsupials
Our new favorite post-holiday addition to the shop is this sweet little book about a flying kangaroo who must leave home to discover her own special beauty. Adelaide will surely be an inspiration to any of the (kangaroo) kids in your life (and the illustrations are as charming as can be).
