Happy hump day!
It is always great when Wonderful Wednesday comes around. This week I have compiled a list of 5 more things that I love, that I want you to love too!!!
Please enjoy!
And remember, if you have something that you LOVE and you think deserves recognition.....send it to me and I might just feature it in a WW post!!!!

1.) These photos of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade are AH - MAH - ZING!!! Creepy and fantastic!!!!  I picked some that I like the best:

2.) As you may know, I am getting ready to re-launch my Etsy store....well check out this AWESOME Etsy pick.......FACARO....amazing recycled chandeliers made of bike parts!!! WOW!!!


COME ON!!! THESE ARE STUNNING!!!





Caro (Carolina Fontoura Alzaga) is a multidisciplinary artist with a penchant for repurposing castoff materials and exploring socio - political themes. To view more models in the series please visit: www.facaro.com   

3.) Yes...I am slowly but surely making my way down the list of Chicago MUSTS. Each week there is something......usually food related.......but also usually a bit 'bad' for you.....this week I want to feature some thing healthy!!!! CRAZY, I know! The Protein Bar was just up the street from us at The corner of State and Lake in the Loop.


The inside was nicely decorated:



Even the 'Bobsy Twins' liked it:

I had this:
(of course) And it was DEELISH!!!!

Next time you are in Chicago try THE PROTEIN BAR!

4.) I love this one!!!! "Erratum", by London-based artist Jeremy Hutchison's project 'erratum', where he invited workers from factories across china, india, turkey and pakistan to insert an error in the items they mass-produce every day. It is really super funny work!!!! Check out some of my faves:






Jeremy Hutchison: erratum
Paradise Row, London

5.) Today.....I appeal to the lowest depths of your humanity with the cruelly funny video. So in the spirit of A.F.V. enjoy:
