Rage Captain Jack Sparrow Transient Princess Alien vs Predator Chess Pioneer Woman Home & Garden A sweet friend of mine sent the girls and me a box of adorably adorable owl pillows this week.

Ghost Billboard Erected on U.S.-Canada Border By Duncan Geere, Wired UK A U.S. art studio called Lead Pencil Studio has created a sculpture on the border between the United States and Canada that consists of a blank space in the shape of a billboard, surrounded by tangled metal.
