a beautiful weekend!
PS My Dad bought a motorcycle!
I wonder what we were laughing about . . . . . .
Have a great weekend!
So for some strange reason I didn’t realize that yesterday was Wednesday . It has been a long week! But anyhow . . . . .
I cam across this BayanHippo a few years ago when I was still new to Etsy and I fell in love with her bags. Not only are they great quality, but they are super roomy, and using sturdy fabric in vibrant colors. I have the messenger and it is still like new!
Images and lovely bags from BayanHippo
PS Great customer service… the bags come from Turkey and you still get them fast…. lux fabrics …. I could go on and on!
I live in a world on contradictions.
I like to DIY, but I am lazy.
I like to travel, but I am a home-body.
I also like to eat local food, but I also enjoy a fast food burger more often than I would like to admit. (This I am blaming on my childhood, when going to McDonald’s involved a 30 minute drive and good behavior on mine and my sister’s part all day. It was a privilege not a right!)
I generally try to stay off the soap box and not tell people what to do, because I may do that wrong thing tomorrow (and it is really none of by business).
I read last week that Minnesota, along with Florida and Iowa, is working on legislation that would ban people from filming the conditions at factory farm in the state.
It is really all about information.
Sometimes all it takes is one photo and someone can become a vegan for life. And sometimes people will look away and choose not to know.
I know where my meat comes from, and when I hear news about meat recalls and people getting sick from meat they bought for their families and do not have to worry about my family.
But everyone should choose for themselves.
Don’t let someone decide what you should eat or what you should know about your food.
What it comes down to is:
If you want to know where you food comes from: find out
Generally any farm worth his salt will let you see the farm (with in reason, mind you!). Most farmers are proud of what they are doing.
Hello everyone and Happy Friday! We are finally going to have a little sun and yard work beckons, not before enjoying some good company and cocktails. (everyone wants to check out the new floor).
Here are some interesting things going on around the interweb this week:
Check out Jenna’s post on farm snobbery. She is right: it is not a hobby.
I came across this cool site this week: One Dress Protest. Here it is in her words, “One Dress Protest is me, Kristy Powell, wearing one dress for one year in order to protest the ideas and motivations behind how and why I wear my clothes. Over the year I aim to challenge the ways identity is constructed through clothing, what sustainability means for consumption, how our perception of others is so often based on external presentation, and what “fashion” ultimately means for me going forward.”
I was super excited to get Megan’s Best of Crafting an MBA. Two words: Awesome and Inspiring
