I like the idea of having a colorful dinner table? paint a door and lay plexiglass over the top. Then collect different random chairs to go with the table. Eveyone picks their own?my wheels are turning!
For the beach house* river rocks in a box + garden hose = clean feet what a great garden idea! Placed in the sun will heat the stones as well. Great way to wash off little feet covered with grass and dirt before coming inside.
I make my Turkish Roasted Chickpeas spice blend from some beautifully aromatic spices that include toasted cumin, black and pink peppercorns, oregano and Turkish bay leaf, sweet paprika, cayenne pepper and sumac.
