green offerings

Is anyone there? Late breaking news!



Today my brother's house was featured in the NYT Home section and my three pillows were stylin' in the great photos by Ethan Pines.

So Bruno thought it would be fun to give Uncle David something he made for the new house, too. He picked these unfired clay pieces. Bruno's teacher suggested the children return the clay to the earth eventually, so we're sending it to Los Angeles to melt into David's garden.

While Bruno and I were busy cooking up this scheme, my husband was in the kitchen whipping up his very own version of Green Tea Ice Cream.

1 cup milk
3 cups cream
2 Tablespoons matcha
1/3 cup agave nectar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Mix matcha with 2 Tablespoons of the milk to make a smooth paste. Add the remaining milk and the agave nectar and mix thoroughly. Add the vanilla and stir well. Add the cream and stir. Freeze in ice cream maker according to manufacturer's instructions. This is like the Fior di Latte of Green Tea Ice Cream, if you know what I mean. Now I really am gone.

Love the article and photos! Viva la textiles! We can't wait to try your green tea ice cream! It's on the schedule for tomorrow!
 
Holy shit! Really? I was reading the article and looking at the pillows and thinking - that guys got some crafty sisters. Wonder if they have blogs?

No lie. Very very cool. The house looks amazing!
 
The story and slideshow were wonderful! The textures in the house are really exciting (that sink in particular) - as were the pillows.

I will have to try the ice cream next week.
 
yowza, what a house!
