All Works of Love are Works of Peace & 100th Post Celebration!! + giveaway

"All Works of Love are works of Peace"- Mother Teresa
Its time to celebrate! Today is a special day. In celebration of International Day of Peace and this being my 100th post I want to show you some inspiration to me and have a special giveaway for you.
Since today is International Day of Peace I want to let you know why I love Peace. In the photo above I have some things that inspire peace to me. Things I treasure like the Peter Max Peace poster. In 2006 I got to meet Peter Max and he signed it for me. It was the best. He is an amazing artist and a huge inspiration to me. A photo of my family in 1985- my dad, mom, me and my twin sister in bonnets. I love how young and happy my parents look and how tiny we are. Some books that inspire me- The Book of Peace, The Giving Tree, and Peace- the Biography of the Symbol. They are all filled of lovely images and beautiful stories. Other things that makes Peace special to me are: the 60s/ 70s era, artists/ inspirational people like John…

here is my favorite dish to make

Chilled Avocado Salad
1/4 cup olive oil
2 tbsp. rice wine vinegar
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. oregano
1 avocado, peeled, pitted and cut in bite size pieces
1 cup cooked brown rice
1/2 cup canned black beans, rinsed and drained
1 large Roma tomato, seeded and diced
1 green onion sliced steps to create this yummy dish: 1. whisk oil, vinegar, salt, and oregano in large bowl. Add avocado; toss gently to coat.
2. Add rice, black beans, tomato and green onion; toss gently to mix. Cover and refridgerate for one hour. *warning- this one hour will seem like forever after making this dish and wanting to eat it right away... but this is worth the wait because it tastes best chilled. You can serve this with some tortilla chips and a eating utensil. Yum.
(I am sharing this recipe with my dear blog friend Dee from Our Little Love Nest and I figured others may want to try it too. So here you go. Hope you enjoy this dish! I found the recipe card at Walmart. I found that cute vintage owl tray at the trift s…

peace owls need your vote for an eco tee shirt design contest

Acouple weeks ago I was stumbling around the internet curious to find a eco friendly tee shirt printer and i found a fun contest instead. It is from Planet Green and Hessnatur with a chance to win a dream prize: "The winning T-shirt design will actually go to print on hessnatur T-shirts produced at Grameen Knitwear in Dhaka, get embedded into Hessnatur’s collection and then go on sale worldwide. Talk about huge. The winner could very well walk away with an experience that not only boosts their career to brand new, more elevating heights but that also inspires the global community. Proceeds will help Grameen Shikkha, the education division of the humanitarian, anti-poverty organization founded by Nobel Peace Prize recipient Dr. Muhammad Yunus, help support students in Bangladesh." Sounds wonderful to me. I hope my Peace Owl design has a chance of winning. You can VOTE once a day until September 15th. The votes will determine the top 5 and then Planet Greens judges will announ…

Raindance Music & Art Festival #2

Well the second Raindance has come and gone just like that. This was a fun little 2 day hippie festival in Tampa Florida. The weather was full of sunshine with just a sprinkle of rain each day. The days were full of good music, good vibes, smiles, dancing, jam bands, sunshine, bubbles, art, floating in the pool, foam parties, peace and love. I wish I could do more festivals they make me happy. Making people smile from something you create is just the best feeling. I hope you enjoy these photos. I wish i had more to share but I was slacking on the photo taking this trip. peace & love!
