Our Back Patio

A blog about our life, clean food, inspiring interiors and our wonderfully varied community of friends and family who make it richer.

I’m thrilled to be working on my newest collection for @WearSleeveless which I’m calling Rosary&Smoke simply because I’ve been inspired by the onset of spring, a bohemian meets Almost Famous vibe…and the gun range where I recently went on a date with Dustin. #truth

The bottom left is a lambskin pouch that I made into a pendant that is hung by a chain drawstring and distressed with metallic paint.  The finished product incorporates the small pyrite beading that you can see on some of the other rosary inspired pieces.  Loving the endless options using bullets, chain and the oh-so-Sleeveless signature leather!

Pin these to pinterest if you like what you see…help me spread the word!

So D and I were craving cookies tonight after this spicy rendition of veggie gumbo on papardelle noodles that I concocted.  After realizing that we had no butter, I got on the trusty world wide web and googling “chocolate chip cookies no butter, I discovered this blog, with this delicious recipe.  I had a very small pat of butter so I used a little less oil and I added oats to mine (so they’re healthy now, right?) and here I am…Happy indeed.  Definitely give this recipe a try.  It took 10 min, and they are some of the best chocolate chip cookies I’ve ever had!
