Probably Something You Would Like…

by Susan on May 27, 2009

I know it’s a little bit early in the week but since Erin and I are headed for the hinterlands tomorrow I thought I’d get ahead of the game. Happy PSYWL Day!

This is the coolest place to vacation or have a wedding.

I am dying to make these produce bags from this book

Rustic Fruit Desserts looks amazing! There are lots of recipes that you can assemble and then freeze- perfect for families that won’t eat a whole pie in one sitting.

I have no idea how I stumbled on Martin Meyer Imports but I could spend hours on this site. If you’re looking for a tiny camel for your diorama, this is the place. They have a whole section of fake mushrooms and moss!

Table salt cones. I am weirdly drawn to these…

Homemade Oreos. Why? Because you can.

Guinness Cupcakes. Too cool for school.

Ramen noodle knitting. Seriously.

That’s it for me? What awesome things have you run across this week? Link ‘em up in the comments.

I read about a designer named Christiaen Meindertsma who knitted a rug with organic wool from 18 merino sheep using HUGE needles, because that’s a LOT Of wool. Here’s her website with some pictures

and here’s the website of the ranch where the sheep live.

It’s all for a Nature Conservancy exhibit to be held at the Cooper-Hewitt in NY through January

I love the tree house place! I can’t remember exactly which book(s) I’ve seen about some crazy tree houses, looking on Amazon got me as far as it being one of Peter Nelson’s books, but there are some really gorgeous coffee table books about all sorts of great tree houses. There’s a Tudor tree house!

Great links, thanks. I’m reading Slow Money too, thanks for that too.

There is a great article about the Meindertsma rug and other sustainable designer goodies in the Nature Conservancy’s magazine right now. You can connect through their website and make a nice gift while you’re there. :)
