Weekly Finds

It’s Friday, already? I have a long list of post ideas and notes, a big stack of photos to share, but somehow I haven’t found the time to get around to sharing them. The week has been a busy one, what with work and appointments. And studio time! Yes, you heard me right. I’ll share more on that situation soon.

Here are some finds for you, for now:


New favorite word might be culled. For some reason, it makes me think of this quote. (Which in turns leads me to think of the White Stripes song “Little Acorns.”)

Speaking of Jack White, this song keeps getting stuck in my head. And this one. And I’m also digging fun. and MB20.

You know what is another lovely word? Murmuration.

Came across these two (one and two) beautifully done how-to videos via My New Roots (found via my three boys.)

Newman’s doesn’t put enough Ginger-O’s in each package.

I wouldn’t doubt it.

This looks decadent.

In the past seven years as a vegetarian, I never really craved meat—except for rarely, when I would want a tuna salad (with onions, celery and grapes) sandwich. (OK, and maybe sometimes a piece of bacon, slathered in maple syrup.) So when I came across this recipe right after I began eating meat again, it seemed a bit like kismet. Must try.

I made the Maple Mustard Green Beans and Potatoes from Vegan with a Vengeance. Another blogger posted the recipe here.

What have you been finding and enjoying this week?

    Did you kismet is a Turkish word?

    Studio time? Wonderful! Can’t wait to see what creations come to light.

    Out of curiosity (I probably missed a blog entry) why did you go back to eating meat?

      Short answer: I guess it was just time. I’m hoping to go into more detail about it all (if anyone is interested) as soon as I can organize my thoughts into a post.

        Well, if I were to write about my vegetarian time, it wouldn’t be that interesting (five months?). However you went from seven years vegetarian back to eating meat. It’s interesting to me because I know it had to be an adjustment for your digestive system, your taste buds etc. Did you go full on red meat or are you taking it easy with less red meats?

        I’m not technically a vegetarian but I eat probably one serving of meat per day, if that. And its usually chicken. I just don’t have a huge taste for it any more.

    Oh, I remember Murmuration! My husband showed this video to me after we experienced something similar last year :]
