Build a $300 underground greenhouse for year-round gardening

Fantastic. This appeals to me in so many ways. Not excluding minimal weekend, energy efficiency, and I am guessing you could easily do a reclaimed-water sourcing. I am renting right now, but when I buy my next house, I will have this in mind along with the search for the perfect home. Here is more information on this great idea for year-yound fresh food.

therunnybunny



I will post more on this later, but to remind myself (often necessary when you have ADD) here are some pics - you can find therunnybunny on Etsy.

Pamela Tang





Another of the endless supply of great Etsy artists.

I love how Pamela Tang uses clean, natural colors, rich with texture, with a special emphasis on my favorites: raw silk and natural linen. She works out of Australia but her Asian influence is quite strong and moody, as evident in her beautiful photos.

Although she seems to be working more on paintings, her quilts have long been one of my favorite things on Etsy. However, her pinafores seem to be doing well and I love them as well.

Enjoy.

For the Love of Fabric







More fabrics.

I thought I was done, but it is hard to kick a good habit. I couldn't resist some of the new fabrics out, and now have a beautiful selection at my Etsy site AcmeBabyCo.

Both geometrics and florals, and some cute deer from Jay McCarroll's Woodland Wonderland line to top it off.

I think my new favorite designer nowadays would have to be Anna Marie Horner. Some of her stuff before was cute, but her new line Good Folks is a fabulous variety of rich and somewhat daring colors in designs that range from graphic to strongly geometric, all with a feel of nostalgia. This girl is brimming with talent. She offers not only fabrics, but gorgeous rugs and pillows, patterns and kits, paper goods, even a darling book, and much, much more.

Besides, I think I am a little fascinated as to how she can look 19 years old and appear to have several children whose ages range up to 10 years old. Her blog is gorgeous, too... just like her.
