The Uncommon Element: Paper Hearts and Tote Bag Pillows

[NotCot had this wonderful idea to use extra reusable totes as throw pillows!]

  • For all those ladies out there interested in global politics, the location of this year’s G-20 summit has been announced. We’re so happy President Obama picked Pittsburgh!
  • Oh Michael Cera, you can do no wrong.  Check out the trailer for Paper Heart, which is coming out this August. This movie looks absolutely adorable!
  • A Day in the Life…of Abbey Road!

What We’re Into:

Sari: Spaced. This late 90’s BBC comedy, created by and starring Simon Pegg, is loaded with pop culture references (including lots of sci-fi/horror-style film work), witty dialogue, and even “will they or won’t they” romance (a la The Office: Season 1). The only con:  It’s only two seasons long! I dare you to not fall in love with Simon Pegg after watching this series.

Molly: I’ve been releasing my inner abstract artist and splatter-painting the clean way on It’s really addictive, so be warned…and Get Pollocked!

    Yes, Spaced is awesome!
    You should try and get your hands on ‘Big Train’, its a BBC sketch show with Simon Pegg that is also late 90s. Hilarious.

    This is a great idea! Some totes are very well designed and very cute! Perfect for sprucing up a plain couch and adding some nice touches around the apartment. A very clever use for them when they’re not being used.
