Blogs I Like: March 2011

flowerona blog header

Flowerona was created by florist Rona in Surrey, England with the sole purpose of celebrating all things flowers.  It’s an interesting read and it’s full of beautiful images.

haute nature

Haute Nature is a catalog of  smart creative reuse ideas, art, design and cutting edge eco inventions. The focus at HauteNature is on innovative methods of harnessing the earths resources without waste. The site is edited by Holland Seydel.

strawberry earth

Strawberry Earth isn’t just a blog, it’s also a film festival .  Mette te Velde and Ikenna Azuike (in Amsterdam) created it after being inspired by the green movement in New York. Wanting to bring New York’s optimism, creativity and green solutions to Amsterdam they created this daily source of inspiration for people interested in sustainable living, eco friendly design and a good laugh!

The Strawberry Earth Film Festival. (coming in June 2011) screens the latest and best films and documentaries with a focus on sustainability and the environment.

ready made

Readymade magazine is an endless source for on the cheap (but always clever) DIY projects.   Their retro styling and practicality is right up my alley.


The Ethicurian.  I am still on a kick to gain a greater understanding of our food system and its challenges and triumphs….this is my latest reading material in that effort.

rural intelligence

Rural Intelligence is the simply the best place to find out what is going on in Western MA. I live in East Central MA, but these eastern colonies aren’t like my hometown western states….you can cover a whole lot of ground (and state lines) in a little amount of time….so keeping up with the western mass crowd and all the interesting things that they are doing makes sure I always have a good reason for a short drive.

rural intelligence

Snug Harbour Farm is top on my list of new (relatively) local garden destinations. I have been eying those tall skinny myrtle topiary and their connoisseurs palette has me intrigued. Not so much to see at the blog per se….but I am hoping that the nursery itself is all it’s cracked up to be. Kennebunk Maine, here I come.
