brian andreas makes art from old barnwood and incorporates words about a specific moment or memory…
this is my favorite thing about his work, really, as mentioned on his site:
“we believe (fiercely) in the power of stories, not because they’re our stories, but because it is valuable & right to protect the precious connections between people.”
i made a pumpkin pie the other day, to ease into the knowing that autumn is slowly on its way.
i didn’t write the recipe out anywhere, but i’ll type it out for you, in case you want to make…
1 can pumpkin (i used organic whole pumpkin, but you can use whatever you like)
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
3/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp ginger
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1/2 tsp sea salt
* and if you’re so inclined, 4 oz of cream cheese!
mix pumpkin and spices together. add remaining
ingredients. mix slowly but thoroughly. pour into 9″
pie shell. bake at 375 degrees for about 50 min.
let cool for a smidge, then dig in. :)
if you’re in boston this weekend – sunday, to be exact – stop by the sowa open market!
you’ll find painters, sculptors, photographers, clothing and jewelry designers, milliners, handbag designers, house wares, florists, bakers, local farmer’s produce and much more every week!
