Sick chickens, text art, and questionable piggy banks in this week's reader photos #Reader Round-up#art#chickens#curtains#photography#pink#walls February 27 | Cat Rocketship Hi Monday. Let's do this. I picked these photos from the Offbeat Home Flickr pool. Make sure to stick around for the Clicky Links at the end of the post, too! My e-crush aauumm.ru shared some several more glimpses of her Ukrainian flat. She's got sky-high windows! Teal walls! Pretty little painted illustrations. Pink. Curtains. Way rad text art, Eve! Katie used a super simple backdrop here: tin foil. I love the shabby-chicness of it, despite how much I dislike the term shabby chic. A savings bank for the express purpose of buying candy, NativeBacon? Whatever -- far beyond me to judge! Hello Droogie's hen, Red, convalesces after a dog attack in a stylish vintage tee.

If you've cooked Indian food, you've probably wondered how to make your own ghee. How to successfully circulate a neighborhood petition just seems like a good thing to have on hand.

NEXT Parenting without gender expectations means accepting all outcomes Show/Hide comments [ 12 ] Is that second piggy bank savings for somehown turning yourself into a dinosaur, or is the piggy itself expressing a desire to be a dinosaur? Either way it's awesome. 4 agree Reply The idea of a piggy bank wishing it were a dinosaur makes me laugh. Love it 2 agree Reply Oh that should of course be "some how", not whatever the disaster I originally typed says! Reply Not, sure but this was my initial thought: When I was little, there was a local children's musician named Bart Dentino. One of his more popular songs (and I think the name of one of his albums) was "I Wish I Was a Dinosaur." And I just realized I remember most of the chorus. Blast from the past FTW. Reply is that backdrop/wall covering foil, or an emergency blanket? my gut says the latter…and it's a neat idea, ESPECIALLY when those blankets are so dang cheap. …they also make the wearer look like a baked potato. 1 agrees Reply Call me crazy, but I think you just gave me my next halloween costume idea. Now if I can get my bf to be a steak … 4 agree Reply This ^ Is SO Brilliant! Baked Potato and Steak, OMFG. You are today's winner of "best thing on the internet" 1 agrees Reply HAH DO IT! and keep the blanket in your car afterward. those things are handy to have in emergencies. Reply Aww! Hope the chicky gets all better! 2 agree Reply The good news is, she totally did. I felt so bad, the day after. She didn't do anything but stand in front of an abandoned mirror and stare at herself. She has since made a full recovery and is happy as ever. 2 agree Reply I couldn't get the neighborhood petition link to work. =( Reply Thanks! Fixed.
