We'll be heading to Marjorelle Gardens, tripping it to Essaouira, hanging in the souks, hitting some incredible dinner spots and sure, we'll also shop - of course we will. Suzanne will be teaching the art of travel journaling and be leading us in yoga every morning - I say "us" because, yes, I do intend to yoga it up while I'm there. (famous last words)

There's a good post over at Wilder Quarterly blog about The Majorelle Garden. You might way to know more about the Wilder Quarterly so head over here.
What else happen this week.
I liked this photo of Marilyn Monroe riding the chairlft on Mount Norquay in Banff, Alberta.
I think the graphic designer Amanda Jane Jones is pretty skookum.
Here are her New Year cards and other projects she's worked on. She is also the primary designer for Kinfolk Magazine - which you know I'm a huge fan of. I love the simplicity of her work.
images: scooped from Amanda's website and blog.
Photographer Igor Palmin's work is mostly in black and white. He calls himself an "observer" rather than a photographer and I can see why.
This is by far the best book of the week. (I pinned it on Pinterest already, I know - a bit of a repeat but it deserves double coverage) Check out the price - $1.95.
You can buy the book on Amazon and while I was searching the book I noticed some other "man-knitting" books with names such as "Knitting With Balls: A Hands-On Guide to Knitting for the Modern Man", "Men Who Knit & The Dogs Who Love Them: 30 Great-Looking Designs for Man & His Best Friend" and "The Knitting Man(ual): 20+ Projects for Guys".
I'm not kidding.
By far, though, the website - MenWhoKnit - is one of my favorites. It's just so great that these dudes have a community and share their thoughts and ideas about knitting. Hmmmmm. Ace Camp for the man knitters might be fun. Wool + Scotch in the U.K. (putting on my thinking cap for that one)
Last but not least - Upon a Fold - for those interested in paper craft. A lovely online store owned by Justine + Matt. Their blog lists some of the most varied and interesting paper crafters in the world.
This week - if I can get all in order I'll be launching a new trip.
