I love books. The thing is I find that I don't buy them for myself, but rather add them to digital or handwritten 'wishlists', passing them on to friends and family for special occasions like birthdays and Christmas.
How adorable are these little Dia De Los Muertos terracotta cactus pots! With a handful of supplies and a bit of creativity you can bring your own creation into being. Full instructions at the link below.
I love this Ikea hack! This delightful little house plant stand was put together using a bookshelf and the legs of an inexpensive Ikea Frösta stool. While the author sprayed it with a ombre finish I think it would look equally nice left raw or sprayed white. Detailed instructions on how to make your own are below.
As I look back on my tenure here at Curbly as a staff writer and foodie I thought it might be an idea to look back into the archives and fish out some of my favourite soup recipes that I've shared over the years that are perfect for Fall weather. So herewith my top 10 recipes for you to sink your teeth (and spoons) into.
Risotto can take a little practice to get right, but it's well worth trying your hand at this classic comfort food. The trick is in getting the rice 'al dente', cooked, but with a bit of firmness to it. The ingredients in this dish evoke memories of spring, but provide much needed comfort in this cooler weather.
I love this contemporary take on a floating bookshelf. It's hard to believe but the entire bookshelf is completely screwless! Simple timber studs and good old 'no more nails' is all you need.
It's no surprise I'm a fan on Scandinavian minimalism. These geometric planters are a spin on the classic Finnish Himmeli, refashioned as planters. Best of all they are made from cheap supplies from the dollar store! Detailed instructions on creating your own can be found at the link below.
I collect wall art. Curated of course, artists aren't hoarders, merely selective collectors. The problem is I'm forever changing my mind and swapping prints in and out. Framing can get expensive so enter this quick and easy DIY project: a simple magnetic frame that allows you to change out your favorite artwork! Follow the tutorial at the link below.
One of the things I enjoy about eggs is their amazing ability to hold things together. Frittas are a case in point, super easy to make, usually with left overs, set in whisked eggs. The perfect early dinner. To beef it up a bite I cooked it with bacon, hash & onions. A quick meal to have on the table in under 20 minutes.
Thrift shops are full of old curious finds, junk to some, jewels to others. I love this project that combined this old plate and leather belt upcycled into a Scandinavian inspired teak & leather wall clock. Details at the link below.
