it's the weekend: call your mother

Watch. Flavorwire's three-and-a-half minute super-cut of the wisdom of our TV mothers. Who's your favourite? "Do not eat chips out of a communal bowl.  You may as well stick your hand in a toilet."

Make.  How cute would these colourful animal-topped jars be at a baby shower or kid's birthday party?  Super simple and great way to use all those empty jars you can't quite bear to toss. (I know I'm not the only one in this predicament!)

Listen. NPR's "First Listen" is one of my favourite ways to preview upcoming albums.  Right now I have the dreamy pop sounds of Beach House's Bloom is in heavy rotation. The sneek peak, er, hear is only available until the album drops on Tuesday.

Admire. This gorgeous bronze playground in New York.

Breathe. If you love sea breezes, bonfires and beautiful music, mark your calendar for the Summer's End Folk Fest on Grand Manan island.
