These brownies are just so delicious! The beets keep them nice and moist. I melt the butter with the chocolate and don't bake them quite as long as the recipe suggests so they are a bit more fudgey. yum yum yum!
natalie perkins is an australian graphic designer and illustrator, specializing in hand drawn fonts. she uses ink on magazine pages - perfect for learning how to compose letters and work on kerning and style. i'm going to try this!
Friends from home are coming to visit over halloween. One pal - Vicky, is going to be Amelia Earhart - what a great costume! Flight cap, leather jacket, silk scarf, wind tousled hair and she's set. I don't know what I'm going to be yet.
this looks most like our chair - meghan and i were lucky enough to find a great chair one night walking home - upon further research, i discovered it's a tripolina chair. these kinds of chairs first presented themselves around the 1900's, and were used by english troops.
i made several unsuccessful searches about butterfly, or BKF chairs, and couldn't find any with a wooden frame like ours, until i realized the BKF chair was inspired by the original tripolina. i can't say for sure how old ours is, but judging by the wood and hardware, it is definitely 20th century. this website suggests it could have been made in italy in the 1930's.
this kind of chair has evolved into the less-pleasant looking backyard folding chair, often seen around camp fires with aluminum cans tucked into the pockets.
ours still needs a seat made - the leather ones look beautiful, but something like canvas would be perfect for our house.
