Thursday, July 10


i am so proud of our little garden. we get a lot of sun in the sideyard so it was the perfect place to put in a few boxes. sunset magazine had directions for putting the garden boxes together as well as a list of materials. this year we planted tomatoes, pumpkins, cilantro, carrots, basil, broccoli, arugula, lettuce, corn, zucchini and chives. the strawberries are a repeat from last year and sam loves to go out every afternoon and pick a few to eat.

have a wonderful weekend!
**friday favorites**
kiva is an amazing organization which enables every day people to loan money to an entrepreneur in the developing world. each entrepreneur has a description about the business he/she runs, the amount of the loan requested as well as the location. you can search by geographical region, gender, type of business as well as loan amount. a little bit can go a long way!
this blog shows photographs of little dolls left around london. the blog is described as "little handpainted people, left in london to fend for themselves". how fun to find one of the scenes!
(found via black*eiffel) 101 cookbooks chronicles a cookbook collection, one recipe at a time. heidi swanson has picked amazing recipes with a variety of ingredients and she will give you honest feedback on her experience. i have spent a lot of time sifting through all of the recipes. you can search by ingredient or type of dish (appetizer, dessert, vegetarian, etc.). you can also find lists of favorite food sites and favorite cookbooks. so many possibilities, not enough time!

who knew that gummi bears could be so versatile? this chandelier was created by yaya chou and a ton of gummi bears. her work 'combines humor and commentary on modern lifestyle'. very interesting...and yummy! do you think the gummi bears melt from the lightbulb?
