What I’m Digging
Happy Friday, friends! I’ve got a lingering cough left over from my allergy bout this week, but I’ve given it due notice it needs to move on (plus, lots of tea, homeopathic medicine, grapefruit seed extract, and nasal spray), because I’ve got too much happening this weekend to be sick!
My Small Measures post is up over on Design Sponge. This time I’m sharing ideas for making homemade post-industrial candlestick holders out of plumbing piping, as well as for decorative matchbox covers (you’ll have a complete EUREKA! moment when you discover just how easy both are).
Also today on Design Sponge, there’s a little “Behind the Scenes” tour of our house. If you’re new to this here blog and would like to see more photos of our house and property, check out this recent interview and tour I did over on Design Mom. Again, the images are all courtesy of the lovely and talented Rene Treece Roberts of Luxe House Photographic. That woman knows how to wield a camera like nobody’s business.
If you’d like to listen in, I’ll be chatting about all things pie today on The Town Dish radio show at 12:45 p.m. today. After that, Hubs, Huxley and I are headed over to the Ashevillage Institute to watch a demonstration on how to inoculate wood logs with shiitake mushroom spores, something I’ve long wanted to learn. We’re capping the day off by stopping by the Grove Arcade for the launch party of Asheville’s newest downtown events publication, Asheville Scene. Lots to do, lots to learn today!
Here’s a smattering of this’s and that’s that caught my attention this week:
*Our eggplant are finally coming in and I think this might be their fate.
*Digging this “winning” mix.
*My kind of way to use up an egg glut!
*Intrigued by this new Top Bar Beekeeping book.
*How to use your pressure canner.
*My love for Thred Up runs deep.
*Finally bought a new duvet cover after 5 years.
*Marisa’s tips for tomato canning season.
Tomorrow I’m joining 3 other ladies for a 1-hour archery lesson. Have any of you tried archery? I’m so excited!
