Sharing some interesting and inspiring ideas and projects today. Happy Friday!
Titanic II: An Australian billionaire is building an exact replica of the original Titanic. Full-size. As in, you can buy a ticket and sail around the world.
It will be called the Titanic II and you can watch a video showing how it will look inside here: Titanic II (All photos are from the site linked here.)
Would you buy a ticket for Titanic II’s maiden voyage?
PoshMark, have you ever shopped here? I have not personally purchased anything via Poshmark but it’s a site where you can buy and sell fashionable clothing you no longer wear. Apparently, Poshmark handles all of the transaction (including shipping so they can make sure their members are completely satisfied with their purchase. It sounds pretty much the opposite of eBay.)
They also have parties centered around specialty themes like Designer Handbags, Vintage Wear, etc… Have you ever purchased or sold anything on Posh Mark? If so, please share your experience. Did you like it? Would you do it again?
Check out this multi-purpose Lego tray Sarah made for her son. It’s really amazing and very versatile!
I love Christina’s spring mantel! She created it with her son and it’s delightful! You can see how she made it here: Remodelando la Casa
Madonna at Make Mine Lemon is an excellent cook and her blog is filled with amazing recipes. She recently made Madeleines and I just want to reach through the screen and snag one! You’ll find the recipe here: The Worlds Best Madeleines
Matt Cutts, the head of Google’s Webspam team, has created hundreds of “Google Webmaster Help Videos” online where he answers questions website owners and bloggers have about all things Google. Occasionally, I like to listen to those because they are really informative. The other night I stumbled across one that was a wee bit different and it made me laugh. It’s very short…go ahead and check it out.
Google Reader is Retiring on July 1st
Have you heard…Google Reader is being retired as of July 1st. I don’t read blogs via a reader. I’ve tried a few readers over the years and I just never stuck with them. I finally came to the realization I really prefer visiting the site in person. So I still read blogs the old fashioned way by creating a folder in Bookmarks for my fave blogs and bookmarking them in the folder to read each day.
Pssst: If you subscribed to Postcards from the Porch, the newsletter for Between Naps on the Porch, please take a moment to add betweennapsontheporch@gmail to your e-mail address book. The 3rd edition of the newsletter will go out on Saturday morning and adding that e-mail address will ensure it doesn’t accidentally get caught in a spam filter along the way.
I’ve gotten a number of emails from folks who say they aren’t getting the newsletter and MailChimp is saying it was sent out. They think the email server on the other end may be filtering it out so it doesn’t ever arrive in the Inbox of the subscriber. So please do add the above email address to you address book and I think should solve the problem, or at least MailChimp says it will. If you haven’t subscribed and wish to, you can do that here: Postcards from the Porch
