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.”
kind words will unlock an iron door…
be nice today. be nice every day…

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!
540 harrison ave. boston, ma
in case any of you are interested (and i suspect one or 2 of you are, especially if you’re my mother), i am accompanying 2 friends on a drive cross-country next week. :)
