{Good Read} even though I can’t read Japanese…

There are many languages on my list to learn these days. I rely heavily on Google translators daily it seems. While learning Japanese seems interesting for a number of reasons, being able to finally read the Paumes series of design books would on top of the list. It takes a special book for me to buy it even though I don’t know how to read it- but to buy three books written in a different language would take something special. When I first read about the Paumes books, I immediately went on a search for them. As a New Year’s gift to myself, I bought the, children’s rooms “Stockholm” & The Finland Family Style book. My favorite thing to do is flip through them before I go to bed. They give me extra creative dreams.  Later, for a birthday/Valentine’s Day gift to myself, I added, Paris Creative Couples to my stash.

It seems particularly relevant to share my love for Paumes right now. Yesterday, Paumes started a charity event called “Pray for Japan” for the people suffering from disaster of the earthquake & tsunami. It’s an art exhibition in their gallery where all of the sales from the artwork will be contributed via Japanese Red Cross Society. You can view the participants & more about the exhibition here  . If you wish to donate to Japan relief, I’ve got a button on my sidebar that takes you straight to a few ways to do so- including Red Cross. 

It’s always nice to see interesting companies & talented individuals making a difference. It just makes me like them even more.
