Friday Linkfest

My son and I are stuck inside today for fear of swine flu and the rain. Normally I wouldn't be so cautious, but with an already sniffly toddler and the recent outbreak at our local college campus, I've decided it best to stick close to home! Thankfully our time in the great indoors gives me the opportunity to catch up on some of my favorite blogs. Here are a few of my most newsworthy finds thus far:
  • You may remember when Kati forecasted the coral trend last year here at The Finer Things. Well, it seems the trend is picking up speed again for Summer 2009. I just received an e-mail from Williams and Sonoma Home advertising the company's fabulous coral-themed items.
  • In other news, I was saddened to hear that Boatman Geller had to retire the company's original preppy alligator motif due to concerns that the original design too closely resembled the Lacoste alligator. Happily, they have replaced the original with a new little gator and will be running a naming contest for their newest addition. Check out the details at the Live Your Style blog.
Have a lovely weekend!
