    Ceramics from Atelier Stella

    Looking at photos of these cheerful vessels makes me want to take a ceramics class. And then I flash back to freshman year of college and remember I am TERRIBLE at ceramics. Via Gems.

    Etsy Find: Industrial Garment Racks

    These industrial garment racks are relatively easy to make yourself with 3/4″ pipe fittings from your local hardware store. But, if you don’t feel like getting out the table saw, Stella Bleu Designs has a nice selection ranging in price from $230-$630.

    Or, you could go with a simpler pipe-only design like this one from Stellar Bex, $400. This could easily be put together in an afternoon with pipe fittings and spray paint.

    XOXO

    This is a fun way to make a bookshelf into a focal point. I think you could also install wood Xs directly on a wall for even more impact.

    Recipe Tested: Homemade Granola Bars

    My local market stocks these amazing, homemade-style granola bars that I love. Problem: when not on sale they cost $6 a box and a box only has five bars. No, thank you. So, on the spur of the moment, I decided to make my own. I found this recipe online and gave it a try. I am allergic to wheat, so I substituted gluten free oats and left out the wheat germ. At the time, I wasn’t expecting to like the results so I failed to take any pictures, but let’s just say it was much easier to pull off than I expected. The bars are absolutely delicious, even better than the $6-a-box bars.
