Weekend Links: Week 14

I’ve been looking forward to the weekend all week for several reasons, one of the main reasons being the weather is so lovely. All I want to do is sit outside and do absolutely nothing. It’s cooled off a little (and there’s a chance of snow on Tuesday) but there’s still plenty of sun. I hope you enjoy Weekend Links Week 14 – some of my favorites include how to access the Louvre’s entire collection online for free, an article on beautiful tissue books that started as a pandemic creation, the story of French monks selling more than two tons of “lockdown cheese” in 24 hours, and the prettiest towns in Provence to name a few.
