Decora tu alma ~ workspace inspiration

I have recently made the goal to organize and make my workspace a place that will draw me in and inspire me. Decora tu alma blog from Spain ( which means decorate your soul ) had a post with several pictures of some home workspaces. The above is my favorite, I'm in love with that little red chair ! If you visit Elisa's blog you may see one that inspires you. Just click on the link or picture, enjoy !


Papas Andinas ~ Parque de las Papas

I want to share an interesting article that I came across on the Gourmet website "Peru's potato park ~ an eco-preserve that is a living monument to the descendents of the Incan empire—and their most prized food." The Andes is the birth place of the potato which makes it fitting that six Quechua communities came together in Peru to form the Potato Park.

" The qhachun waguchi is one of 200 varieties on display in the visitors’ center at Peru’s Parque de la Papa, a relatively new and little-known attraction near Cusco. The 22,000-acre potato preserve grows more than 1,300 varieties."

The Potato Park offers multiple tours a one-day driving tour, a three- and five-day trekking tours and a one-day cooking class. The park’s English website offers more details. What is a visit to the park like? Visit the Living in Peru site to find out.

Snail Love

OK it's true, looking in the garden at a snail who has been munching away at my tomato plant doesn't bring the word cute to my mind. But that's the odd thing about snails, when inspired by them creatively they take on a wonderful appeal. They're cute little feelers, delicate spiral shell and slow easy going style. I know I'm not the only one that feels this way, a perfect example is Joo Joo !

When I came across Joo Joo's art blog I immediately fell in love with her snails ! Made with polymer clay and real shells she decorates them with beautiful flowers, leaves, clouds and other fanciful motifs.

I've included a few pictures of my favorites.

She also shows on her blog how she creates them and her inspiration for a particular snail design.

 She explains, "The inspiration for these snails is a Korean historical drama that I'm watching called "Yi San". The colors that they use in their paintings, clothes and decoration always draw my attention."

To see more delightful snails and to learn more about Joo Joo's art blog you can click HERE or on any of the photos or links.
