There is nothing like home made almond butter. Rich, creamy and preservative free this butter is packed with protein and dietary goodness so when the little red house posted a how to on her blog I just had to share. Click here for full recipe.
I have been working hard this last little while and so I've been a little absent from my blog but I am going to be back this week with pictures of a few of the projects I've been working on. I recently visited "Lavandou" a lavender farm, and here I am looking through some prints in the barn come studio.
Sometimes it's hard to find the good in the world, especially these days with planes being shot out of the sky, wars all over the place and a plague in Africa. I mean what else can happen right? Well today I found a wonderful piece of information on one of my favorite websites called Unconsumption that I am sure will make you smile.
Pugedon, a Turkish company, has created a vending machine that dispenses food for stray animals when you deposit your empty bottle or can into the slot on the side. Just pop your bottle or can into the machine and food comes out the bottom. If you put some water in the corresponding water slot, this water will also be dispensed at the bottom in a separate dish. These machines cost the city nothing and the recycled bottles cover the cost of the food. What a wonderful way to feed the stray animals who are often starving and reliant on our help. Now doesn't that make you feel better? It certainly did me. Here's the video.
This is a home for sale in Australia and when I found one of the pictures on desiretoinspire I wanted to see the whole place. I'm glad I did. This inside-outiside home is quirky but delightful. I love the bedrooms and how they all have a link to the outdoors not to mention that awesome living room with glassed in fireplace and exterior patios. Absolutely lovely. I would move in tomorrow!
