Holiday Gift Guide 2019 19: Memories of Milan Throw Blankets and More! [For Sale]

Holiday Gift Guide 2019 19: Memories of Milan Throw Blankets and More! [For Sale]

Includes throw blankets, duvet covers, pillows, hoodies, tees, and much more!

Milan made a great impression on me. We have visited Sicily to see the family many times, and Rome once, but Milan was something quite different. It was cosmopolitan but historical — a large city that felt like a small town — busy but calm — overwhelming yet welcoming. It was one of those cities I felt I could live in, which can’t be said for many of the places I visit. — Douglas

Holiday Gift Guide 2019 02: Temple of Castor and Pollux in Watercolor Tote Bag

November 2nd, 2019 Comments off

I don’t want to push Thanksgiving out it’s proper holiday alignment (see some Autumn/Thanksgiving products here!), but I know that the hunt for holiday gifts starts now. In that vein, I will be offering up some of my favorite items from my Redbubble store over the next few weeks. I hope you can find some excellent gifts for friends and family within. — Douglas


Holiday Gift Guide 2019 02:: Temple of Castor and Pollux in Watercolor Tote Bag

This painting always brings back fond memories of our Sicilian family and the trip they took upon to the Valle dei Tempi in Agrigento, Sicily. This is an amazing collection of Greek temples, many still in excellent condition (considering their age.) This particular scene is not original to the site, but rather assembled from various pieces the early archeologists found lying about. Their science and ideals weren’t quite fully formed when this was created, but it certainly makes a striking photo and painting.

You can see many more of my photos from this trip in this album

Recipe: Cacio e Pepe Pasta Pie via spoon fork bacon

October 3rd, 2019 Comments off
Yum! I love Cacio e Pepe and this sounds and looks like a great way to mix things up a bit. I DO love those crunchy edges. Ummm…nibble-y bits! — Douglas
 
I love love love Cacio e Pepe. Cheese and pepper with pasta, it’s like the pasta version of grilled cheese. Simple and delicious, and you don’t really need to mess with it. We however decided to slightly mess with it. We made it into pasta pie. I love this because you get some crispy pasta on the top, but on the inside you still get all that gooey cheesy sauce. It’s a pretty great combo. Enjoy!
