links for your weekend / take five

By now you’ve probably noticed some changes around Mint! New contributors, new features, and now a little layout/title change for Links for Your Weekend. February marked Mint’s 4th anniversary, and with that I felt some “new-ness” was in order. I’ve also started brainstorming a Mint redesign (gotta get that Hello Tenfold site up first!) and hope that all of these changes will lead to a better site for you and for me. But here we are, Friday, and I’ve got some favorite links from some favorite blogs:

1. Pillow envy! Dorothy Jeanne goods spotted on Old Brand New
2. Vintage Optical Shop on Etsy from Design Work Life
3. This Week’s Recipe: Grapefruit cocktail on Design Love Fest by Jen Gotch
4. Type by Marcus Kelman on Eva Black
5. Jewelry by Kathleen Whitaker via wit + delight
