Happy first Friday of August! As much as summer is not my favorite it can slow down a little bit. I think I have only 3 more Fridays until teacher PD (professional development) starts back up and we need to start getting classrooms ready for students. Yikes!Slow down summer! This week’s finds include some beautiful train stations, some foreign TV, a summer dip and a super cute website.
Beautiful Train Stations
How many of these beautiful stations can you cross off your list? I’ve only been to 5, so I have a lot more travel to do if I want to cross a few more off the list. I find it interesting how different they all look, some look straight out of a Wes Anderson movie while others look super modern. I love traveling by train and hope this list inspires you to leave the car at the rental place.
Foreign Language TV
Feel like escaping to a foreign country without the hefty price tag and jet lag? Try streaming one of these 19 shows that CNTraveler put together. I’ve only seen one from this list, DARK (Germany) but I am definitely going to check out Call My Agent (Paris) Midnight at Pera Palace (Istanbul) and Girls from Ipanema (Rio de Janeiro).
Mexican Street Corn Dip
This dip by Half Baked Harvest looks like the perfect summer snack by the pool or at a outdoor gathering. Grilled corn, spicy chili butter, and salty crumbled cotija cheese…how good does that sound? I’ve made quite a few of the recipes on this site and they never disappoint.
I’m a sucker for embroidered items and cute dolls. I stumbled across this super cute felted cat doll named Sophia and then explored the other offerings on the site. It’s full of beautiful knit and embroidered items like hats (I really like the Josephine Cloche & Molly Beret) hand accessories, slippers, coin purses and more. So many cute things! I’m going to bookmark this site for later when I’m looking for a gift idea.
Have a wonderful weekend!
