I make the most out of what we’ve got. Dinner? Let’s see…um I have a box of spaghetti, a hunk of pecorino, oh and I will throw in there some fresh herbs from the garden, halve some cherry tomatoes over it…with a drizzle of olive oil, hunk of crusty bread, done. Would you look at that, I did have something to make us for dinner.
German designer Samuel Treindl has discovered a way to make the most it of the existing furniture he had, twice! Parasite Production is a series of cabinets, shelves, and other pieces of furniture that have select shapes exactly cut out to create other useful objects. The brass shelving unit receives a “wholly transformation” after many, many recycled hooks and hinges emerge. Rather than discarding of the shelf, its new look makes for the most curious art form furnishing your living room has ever met.

Allison Parker is a proud stay at home mom maintaining a full schedule kissing boo boos and passing out hugs just because. Her days many times are spent between the garden and the kitchen. From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she's taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it's a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
