Distractions for a Summer-Time Monday!

Over the weekend, a few things crossed my screen that I want to share:

1. Check out this fountain in Budapest!  So cool (literally and symbolically!)…

2. I don’t need this wallpaper, but I’m considering adding a room to my house just to put it on the walls.  You can see it here:

3.  From Flavorwire, a list of the 20 Most Beautiful Children’s Books of All Time. Here’s the list:

I am in total agreement with their decision to put Shaun Tan’s book, The Arrival, in first place.  Just for fun, I went through the picture books on my own shelves and, not counting what was already on Flavorwire’s list, added one more. A tough decision – so many beautiful books. But starting with a stack of about ten possibilities, my final decision was….Mystic Horse by Paul Goble.
