antique boulangerie boards (home decor)

Love these vintage european bread bakery boards. Each of these pieces, which range from 20-60 years old, are one of a kind and once lived an active life in a bakery in Europe.

fundraiser and contest for figs with bri

figs_with_bri_logo

bloggers unite!

one of my favorite food bloggers, briana brownlow of the wonderful figs with bri, has recently discovered that the breast cancer she battled two years ago has returned to other parts of her body. bri has been one of the most enthusiastic supporters of my blog, and even though we have never met i feel such a nice and genuine friendship with her (and consequently horror and sadness upon hearing the news of her illness). as it turns out i am not alone. bee and jai of the jugalbandi blog were also affected by the news, and have created a fundraiser for our foodie friend to help her pay for treatments that her health insurance does not cover. bri is actively seeking traditional and holistic treatments, and the cost estimates for one year of treatments are about twelve grand! almost $3800 has already been raised right now. as a person who strongly believes in equal parts of science and spirituality when it comes to treating illness, i am all for this creative way of reaching the goal!

figs_with_bri_post

bee and jai are dedicating this month’s food photo contest to bri. the theme is yellow, the symbolic color of the fight against cancer and of the livestrong foundation. you can click on the chip-in button here to donate, and click here to enter the contest, read the rules, and get a chance to win some wonderful prizes that bee and jai have gathered. the deadline for photography entries is june 30th, 2008. let’s all take a photo, send money if we are able to and support a witty, articulate, caring food blogger who provides so many delicious recipes for healthy organic vegetarian meals, and serves as frequent inspiration for all of us.
