The Other Boleyn Girl :: fire bowls :: Minimahue

This is my daily collection of noteworthy stuff that I saw online.

+ I recalled the story of Henry VIII and the Tudors from my history class in high school. I watched The Tudors TV series with the intrigues of Anne Boleyn. Now, I am curious to read about the sisterly rivalry and the intrigues in The Other Boleyn Girl by Philippa Gregory. Via Junebug Weddings

+ To continue with a burning question, let’s talk about the joy of a fire bowl to prolong the outdoor living this autumn. Before you buy anything, check first the city bylaws and talk to your insurer. You may need to put a metal grill, as open flame is often not allowed by fire departments in the city. If you live in the Los Angeles area, check out the precast fire bowls made by concrete artist Seth Ernsdorf of Ernsdorf Design. See more fire pits here. Via Dwell blog

+ I introduced on Style Sheet how Kathy Scully converted incandescent light bulbs into vases to start her plant cuttings. The big design issue is how the light bulb will stand. The design studio Minimahuella of Buenos Aires provides an answer with this stand. Via Inhabitat

+ I do not present products from Wal-Mart typically but when they carry a cute bamboo and fabric cat bed, I do have a choice. Unfortunately, it seems that it was a limited time product. If you know a source, please let me know. Via moderncat

+ olivelse features beautiful pictures of her family vacations. Look at le retour and the four previous posts. I selected those because they fit well for a Labor Day.
