Decoração oriental Há pouco mais de um mês nós publicamos uma matéria sobre organização da casa com a participação da personal organizer Claudia Moura, estão lembrados? Nessa mesma época um dos leitores do Casa de Valentina nos enviou um email com dúvidas sobre como resolver a decoração e organizar o seu quarto, que fica em um república de faculdade.

Agora confira as dicas que a Claudia sugere para o Mateus: "Olá Mateus, O pilar da organização é que todas as coisas (TODAS) tenham o seu lugar.

Food Librarian Broken Glass Jello Ever since I made the 5-layer Jello for Valentine's Day, I've been craving Jello. Recently, my friend gave me great notecards from JustJennDesign. On her site, she has a recipe for Broken Glass Jello. Broken Glass Jello (Adapted from JustJenn) Printable Recipe Here 4 small boxes (3 oz. each) of Jell-O or store brand "gelatin dessert" in different colors. 1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk (don't get evaporated milk) 2 envelopes unflavored gelatin (that Knox stuff) For each flavor, dissolve one box of jello in one cup of boiling water. Please note: Only add 1 cup of water to each box of colored Jello. After chilling the four flavors, cut them into small blocks. Carefully mix the blocks in a 9 x 13 pan. In a separate bowl, sprinkle 2 envelopes unflavored gelatin into 1/2 cup cold water. Cut into blocks or shapes and serve! Thanks JustJenn for this fantastic recipe and inspiration!

Today’s post is a super-easy and fun way to make a vanilla extract. You will need – 8oz vodka 6 vanilla pods (organic is best of course) Put the pods in the vodka and leave in a closed, labeled bottle / jar for six weeks. That’s it! Notes – 1) Making this extract should of course be done by an adult or with adult supervision as there is alcohol involved. 2) Important – this is not “Vanilla Vodka”. 3) To make sure no-one else attempts to take a swig, please don’t use the original vodka bottle for your extract! 4) As this is a natural home-made herbal product, the final strength will not be “standardized” and so the amount needed may be different from that called for by recipes.

Fieldstone Hill Design » Blog Archive » objects :: still suzani Suzani has been a decor trend for quite some time now. But I am still loving Suzani. “Suzani is a type of embroidered and decorative tribal textile made in Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan and other Central Asian countries. Suzanis usually have a cotton (sometimes silk) fabric base, which is embroidered in silk or cotton thread. Popular design motifs include sun and moon disks, flowers (especially tulips, carnations, and irises), leaves and vines, fruits (especially pomegranates), and occasional fish and birds.” – {see wikipedia for more} For me, Suzani is not so much a trend as it is a way of bringing beautiful, hand-embroidered, world influenced flair into your home. Here are some beautiful uses of this timeless fabric: Dongia fabric is used on the chairs. The same Dongia fabric is used here in a fantastic way. Here a Suzani fabric that is simply draped over a desk/vanity. Similarly, this Suzani is draped on a dining room table, adding detailed earthy-ness to a very elegant space.
