This week I’m sending you to some fun places on the web…

I could look at this Matched-themed Etsy treasury all day. Curated by dragonflycurls, it’s full of lovely things (cassia seeds, green ball gowns, compass necklaces, letter-pressed stationery) that relate in some way to MATCHED and CROSSED. Love!

And, if you are in Cedar City or will be in Southern Utah anytime before August 25th, you should check out the Braithwaite Fine Arts Gallery. My mom has a show there right now that is absolutely gorgeous. It’s called INTO THE WOODS and it’s full of beautiful paintings of Dixie National Forest. I know I’m biased, but her pastels are just gorgeous. Also, in the sidebar of their website, you’ll see that they are now selling giclee prints of paintings by Jim Jones. He is my favorite painter (besides my mom, of course!) and I’m sure many of you have heard of him. His work is beautiful.

In honor of Neil Diamond’s wedding last week (almost as exciting as the royal wedding last year!), check out this slideshow dedicated to Neil. There weren’t any pictures of Neil’s wedding available online, but when I tried to find some, I found this. Which I loved and just had to post.

And that is all for now…next week, will I actually write a post about writing? Only time (and how far I get on this revision) will tell. Stay tuned.

    I have a love for Princess Di that probably matches yours for Neil. Great picture. Planning on hitting your mom’s show this summer 🙂

    Hi Ally,
    A friend of mine suggested I read your books, and boy I’m glad! She knows you actually, through the LDS grapevine.
    Any way. I’ll be posting my review of Matched shortly, and would like to invite you to stop by if you have a minute.

    I always remembered that Scott told me you guys love Neil Diamond! Now we’ve got 2 daughters with Neil Diamond songs written about them 😉 Sweet Caroline and Cracklin Rosie.

    I’m so happy you loved the Matched treasury I put together! I was looking for some Matched inspired gifts for a friend of mine, and couldn’t resist putting that together 😀

      Audra! I didn’t realize that was you! How did I miss that?!? It’s so much fun!

    I kinda wish I was going to Utah now. But that won’t happen anytime in the forseeable future. 🙂
