On the heels of Earth Day, two major forces come together to bring you a sustainable collection just in time to upgrade your WFH living situation. Dropping today, American fashion designer Joseph Altuzarra partnered with Etsy for an exclusive edit of home décor.

“I love nothing more than to be home with my family and friends, so designing for the home felt like something that connected with how I live. The idea of being surrounded by objects and furnishings that bring you peace, joy, and happiness, is so important,” Altuzarra stated in a press release. We can all use a little more joy in while stuck in self-isolation. What better way to do that than with a dog bed that is chicer than yours?

Partnering with eight Etsy makers from around the world, Altuzarra brings his runway aesthetic to the living room. From the beautiful color palettes to

Tulip Inspired Tablescape with Vintage Label Vases

frank lampard

 

The weather has been cold so far for Spring this year. It’s time to warm things up and think about ideas for my table. My inspiration for this Tulip Inspired Tablescape grew from memories of tulips in my mom’s garden each year when I was a child. Every Spring she would plant the tulip bulbs in different color. They were everywhere and Tulips has been one of my favorite flowers since for the spring. It’s perfect for the Easter holiday which is just around the corner. I am excited to share the details of my tulip inspired tablescape with vintage labels on the vases.

 

I was at my local flower shop and bought some really pretty white tulips. They represent two of my favorite colors white and green, prefect for my tables. I have added the tulips everywhere in the screen porch area, as well as in the kitchen. These

OTTAWA — Peter MacKay’s Conservative leadership campaign is walking back describing a transgender rights bill as a “bathroom” bill in an email to supporters, a term that one NDP MP says perpetuates a “derogatory stereotype” about the trans community.

MacKay sent a message to supporters Thursday attacking leadership campaign rival Erin O’Toole, widely seen as his top competition in the race. The barb was preceded with a comment calling O’Toole someone who was a “good friend” in the past.

5 reasons it’s important to get kids in the kitchen – Time & Money – providencejournal.com

frank lampard

Lack of knowledge and comfort level in the kitchen are primarily why Samantha Barnes founded Los Angeles-based Raddish, a monthly step-by-step cooking kit subscription service that provides recipe cards, grocery lists, kitchen tools and culinary education.

“Parents have had the excuse for years that there has been no time to teach their children how to cook,” said Barnes. “Now they have time. And kids experience a tremendous amount of pride and confidence when they plan, prepare and present food.”

She pointed out five benefits to getting kids in the kitchen:

1. “It’s a way for everyone to excel. They may struggle with fractions, but they read a recipe and use fractions in measuring and suddenly fractions make sense.”
2. “On a practical level, kids who cook eat. When we let kids make a salad dressing and wash salad greens, suddenly they are excited to eat it.”
3. “Skills last forever.”

Share my Garden

frank lampard

The seed swap in early March was the last time that I was out in public, and today, because the weather is cold and rather miserable, I’m feeling a little caged in. Not so the plants in the garden, the rain has catapulted them into growth. Every year I intend to stake the perennials in my borders before their heads flop forward or their stems break in the wind. Oh, I’m full of good intentions! But once again I got round to thinking about it only when the growth was already lush and threatening to be out of control. The wind broke off two delphinium stalks and I went online to see what supports I could buy.

The new supports came this week and now the delphiniums have been crammed into tall peony cages – if I have to be on lock down I’m not going to do it alone!
