a gift certificate from Curly Willow Collections :: a gift certificate from Alexandra Carr :: two prints from ReStyle

Happy Friday, folks! There is still time to enter this week’s giveaways. Some of our favorite answers so far are below…

Curly Willow Collections :: What is your favorite book of all time?

Miss Frangipani says :: A Year of Magical Thinking by Joan Didion. This is such a beautiful book. Although it is about grief and what it does to ones life, the writing is so perfect that it made it to my hall-of-fame. Magical woman, magical prose.

Sydney VH says :: I think you can learn a lot about someone when you ask them what their favorite book is – a classic? a sci-fi novel? a mystery? However, nothing can simply compare to The Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster. Child-like fantasy, astounding imagination, plus complete and unabashed adult humor I did not come across when I was a child? I could read this novel again and again, always following the boy and his dog Tick…or is it Tock?

ReStyle :: Who was your very first best friend?

Suzi says :: At preschool I became best friends with Emma. Emma had sandy brow thick hair, cut into a bob. Big brown eyes, and wore dungarees a lot- it was early 90′s so I think we all wore dungarees a lot. Hers had white and green stripes. We apparently “ruled the roost” at Paddingtons Preschool but we were never mean to anyone. We conquered the playground and the jungle gym together. We went on a train together when we were 3. And also our parents (my dad, her mum) briefly dated… How did we never know about that until now?! We never went to the same schools but every weekend one of us stayed at the others house. I haven’t seen her much lately, but we are still exactly the same 3yr olds somewhere in there, when we do reconnect …minus the dungarees.. My wee girl has the dungarees now!!

Nikki says :: My first best friend was Bruce Davis, he was over at my house everyday after school and everyday in the summers all through Elementary, then I my family moved away the summer before Junior High. We used to play the greatest imaginary games with lots of costumes and also dancing and singing pretending to be rock stars (I was Cyndi Lauper and he was always Michael Jackson, which is kind of funny in remembrance because he is very fair skinned and has white blond hair but at the time we thought we were SO cool). I remember still the last time I saw him when we were in High School and I had gone back to visit my old town. I googled him in my late twenties and found out that he had trained as a chef and married, and died of a freak aneurism. What a tragedy! I mourned him then, and also the passing of my childhood…

Alexandra Carr :: What is your favorite piece of art and why?

Mark Oliff says :: It has to be my Tom Lemon oil called Soup. I actually bought a PROPER art work and hung it on my wall it is kind of Warhol and Basquiet all rolled into one and because it is mine I can touch it! I have had it over five years and the paint is still wet in places!

Tabetha says :: My daughter’s photography. And not just because she is my daughter {though I am immensely proud of her}, but because its genuinely good. The world through my {15 year old} baby’s eyes– its a great view.
