Friday Flotsam: wherein I share all the best that’s floated my way this week, courtesy of brilliant blogs.

Since some have asked, flotsam refers to anything that accidentally falls overboard, whereas jetsam is anything cast overboard deliberately.  Ah, the delights of nautical terminology.

Before we get to the flotsam, I’d like to thank all the new readers.  I couldn’t be more thrilled to have you.  I’d love to know what you like (and dislike, really) about 5thjoy, so email me (admin@5thjoy.com), message me on Twitter, or leave comments below.

Now, let’s kick of the summer with something shiny, shall we?

1. Tom Binns bracelet.

2. Leanne Shapton’s reimagines classic novels as wooden blocks, available at John Derian. Via The Neo-Traditionalist.

3. Watermelonade: perhaps the perfect summer drink.  Via food52.

4.  This gingham bakeware is begging to take a field trip on a floral picnic blanket.   Via thekitchn.

5.  Fine Little Day ship wallpaper, so apropos in your kid’s living quarters.  Via Poppytalk.
