Awesome table mats at Paddington House of Pancakes!
This is kinda like me =D except my parents weren’t missionaries.
“My parents were missionaries, so I grew up all over. I’ve lived in New York, Los Angeles, Budapest, and Moscow. And most of my friends were from missionary families, so they’ve moved on. My home is on Facebook now because it’s hard for me to go home— if that makes sense. Because my home was not a place. My home was a time, and a place.”

I was so bored the other day at work that I tried to stack two stacks of stapler on top of each other and failed miserably thinking it was impossible. Seeing this just totally blew my mind away O_O
Stacks of staples were broken into varying sizes from full stacks about 12cm high down to single staples. These stacks were then stood up and arranged over a period of 40 hours.
It still surprises me everytime I see Oscar de la Renta’s name at the end of the post after thinking what a great dress it is at the beginning of the post without knowing who the designer is.
I’m such an Oscar girl!

Photographer Jun Ahn, from Seoul, South Korea, has traveled to the top of some of the tallest building in her native city, New York and Hong Kong. Once she has climbed to the top of one she will find a suitable location, sit or stand dangerously close to the edge and pose for self portrait photographs.
My name is Brandon Stanton and I’m a photographer in New York City. As many of you already know, several months ago I was approached by the fashion label DKNY, who offered me $15,000 to purchase 300 of my photographs. I politely refused the offer. But earlier this week, one of my fans discovered that DKNY was using my photographs anyway— in Asia. (Full Story:http://thebea.st/13ijYt6)
As atonement for this infringement, I publicly requested that DKNY donate $100,000 in my name to the YMCA in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn, so that underprivileged children could attend summer camp. DKNY responded on Monday with a $25,000 donation.
Over the next three days, my audience stepped in and raised the full $100,000 themselves. Over 3,000 people chipped in, and raised an astonishing $103,710 in 72 hours. (http://bit.ly/YTy4h3)
I have no interest in vilifying DKNY. It is a company composed of thousands of good people. The founder, Donna Karan, is highly respected around the world for both her creativity and philanthropy.
But I would appreciate if you would REBLOG this post, and lend your voice to my request that DKNY raise their donation to match the $103,710 that we raised.
Together, we could create a $208,000 investment in the lives of children in one of New York’s most vital and diverse neighborhoods. Thank you so much.
