I was lucky enough to get along to TropFest on Sunday night and loved this winning film (as well as spotting some famous people - hello Olivia Newton John, how are you today?!)
Thought you might enjoy this as much - the rest of the finalists are all up on YouTube, too.

You know when you see some photographs and they line up everything you like in a way you didn't imagine? These shots made me think, "YES! This is what I meant!" I have so many ingredients from these pics (the wooden floors, the blue/grey couch, the boxy bookcase,) and I just love them. I'm going to use these as house inspiration for the next little while. (And those WINDOWS! Amazeballs.)

Internet, have you seen what you can do, lately? Have a look at this incredible new project for art lovers (and tech geeks, too, I suppose). You can, from the luxury of your desktop, stroll through 17 of the major galleries of the world. And on some paintings, even zoom up close to see unbelieveable detail. Check it out here: be warned, it's a time sink!
