Tuesday miscellany

Our model is wearing a Strongrrl-made poncho and skirt. Accessories are model's own.

There is a bunch of this and that to share, so I thought I'd just do it all in one place today.

I've added a bunch of new bags and skirts to my etsy shop. Please go take a look. I probably won't be adding more for a little while, but am always happy to talk about custom orders. So if you love a certain skirt, but need it in a different size, just let me know! And special thanks, once again, to David and Duncan for the lovely photos!

I'm currently reading The Omnivore's Dilemma by Micheal Pollan. Have you read it? I think that this book, combined with Animal, Vegetable, Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver (which I've recently finished) is going to have a major influence on how I look at food going forward. These are important, accessible books and I'll definitely be writing more about them going forward. If you'd like to join me in some some of informal reading/discussion group, let me know and we'll figure it out.

On a somewhat related note, I've been experimenting with homemade granola bars of late. Haven't found true love yet, but I'll keep you posted. Have you ever made them? Any favorite recipes to share?

Lastly, I'll leave you with two new songs I've been loving:
Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Zero
Cage the Elephant, A'int No Rest for the Wicked

Enjoy! (oh, and play Zero as loud as you can!)
