Are You This Contemporary?

Well, I'm not, usually, but this makes a pretty strong case. I am also not really big on the seriously liberal use of wood, but this has got to be the exception. This matte-finished walnut crowned with recessed lighting is compelling, indeed. The niches are custom sized for the owner's oriental art. The trend toward free=standing tubs is well represented here with this rather large Corian model resting on a  mahogany floor. I could live in this. It is purpose-driven, attention-grabbing and tasteful. Quite a combination. Click here for the article from Home Adore.

Local clothier, Fayettechill, blogged on the subject a couple of days ago. Guest writer Emalie Cockrell and photographers Jeff Rose and Heno Head make you want to grab the tent and go as they describe their favorite places to camp this time of year. Read the post HERE.

"From the" Gotta Try It" Files...

We had never heard of it - but we gotta try it! How about preserved lemons?  Writer Hank Shaw explains the impressive history of this uncommon treatment of this citrus. BY the way, these treatments work for limes, too.  It looks like the Moroccans get top billing for preserving lemons, but the Indians and even the British and early Americans used this method, too. Hank gives recipes for them: Russian Pickled Lemons, Moroccan or American Preserved Lemons and the Indian Method. See the article HERE.
