A friendly hedge and a nod to Trogdor — in this week's reader photos #Pets#Reader Round-up#crafts#homebrew#pink October 3 | Cat Rocketship Hellllllllo, Offbeat Homies! Let's get the week going with a look at what's been going on in the world of our readers, taken from the Offbeat Home Flickr group and Pinterest. Kisså's brew board -- what's on tap and what's on deck and brewing. I need to make one of these. And also I want desperately to taste 'Burninator'.

Source: marginalia55.blogspot.com via Rachel on Pinterest Gareth caught this very interesting hedge in the UK. Katythezimmerwoman's very quiet, neat and tidy studio. Clicky links! Are you still trying to dig out from under all the tomatoes in your garden? I just picked seven today! Deena found Ample Harvest, a site which helps farmers and gardeners find food pantries in need of their surpluses. Thanks to Maggie for pointing out this Apartment Therapy link last week: How to build a ball pit on your balcony! Megan made sure I saw Curbly's How to turn a milk jug into a sandwich box, which is too damn cool. Bored today? I'm thinking about taking Offbeat Mama's hint and doing a little marshmallow construction craft to clear my head. Have you seen Catalogue Living? Lady Brett thought we all would like it: and who doesn't like sarcastic imaginary catalogue captions? Got something to share? See your options on our Submissions page.

Show/Hide comments [ 10 ] Oh my god, Catalog Living is going to seriously damper my productivity today. Reply Same here! At least I just got to cry with laughter at a few though after a taking a welcome break from university assignments, I call that progress. Reply Catalog Living is hilarious! I think it's time to catch up with Gary and Elaine again Reply Burninator was a doppel bock we brewed a couple years ago. Many bock beers are, for some reason, named with "-ator" at the end (Ayinger Celebrator, Bell's Consecrator, Troegs Troegenator, etc.). For us, there could be only one "-ator": Trogdor, the Burninator! Reply Pretty please tell us more about your beers? Read us beer-time stories every night. 1 agrees Reply Hahaha, "beer-time stories" made me think something like, "Oneth upon a tiiiime…HEY! Waitaminnit! Do you know who I am?! Do you you know…. Hahahaha, lookit this guy! I love this guy… you remind me of, uh…? Wait, what?" Which is how I imagine a beer-time story would go! 1 agrees Reply Wow! Those tree banisters look like something straight out of Lord of the Rings! Although the shot of the base looks more like some type of squid monster trying to steal the step. 1 agrees Reply someday the ball pit shall be mine! Reply TREE BANISTERS!!! If we had any open staircases in our house, I would totally install these. Alas, we do not. Reply We don't have any staircases at all, but that didn't stop me from trying to imagine ways of incorporating them into our apartment.
