Artist Spotlight

Here are some artists I find intriguing. I admire people who
come up with interesting and new ways of expressing themselves.
But first, here is me with an orange bull:

The Embroidery of Sarah Hennessey. Found on Mr. X Stitch.
Photo links to her Flickr.

Cement Eclipses by Isaac Cordal. I have seen some of these photos
in the past but just recently came across his Flickr through this
article on Visuall.
NotCot gives me all my favorite images. Always.

National Geographic's Faces of the World Galley.My favorite photos were this one above, taken by Phillipp Aldrupp
and below, Camel Seller, by Soumya Bandyopadhyay.
And I can't deny that I love this one called Boy Wearing Mask, by Jessica Collins.
Quentin TrollipI've seen his work popping up all over the internet on different
blogs I follow and I just can't help but love it.Making such accurate and adorable sculptures out of toilet paper rolls
cannot be easy. I love the bear most.

Playlist Thursday

I have been listening to this playlist most of the year, but it feels
like a very fall playlist, therefore appropriate to post in
the last days of September.
My favorite song on the list is Ellie Goulding's cover
of Only Girl in the World by Rihanna. Its so much better.

Baking in Fall

This fall I want to take an adventure in baking.
I have never tried making things from scratch
on my own and I think its time to get started.
Pixie Crust
These look like so much fun and I bet they taste amazing.
Here is the recipe:
3/4 cup whole or low-fat milk
1/4 cup sour cream
3 heaping teaspoons instant coffee
1 tbsp vanilla
3 cups cake flour
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons very finely ground coffee
2 teaspoons unsweetened natural cocoa powder
3/4 cup butter at room temperature
1 1/2 cup white sugar
4 eggs, yolks and whites separated

I need to get in the kitchen. Like today. Its a rainy gross day
so some baking could get me in a better mood.
