This week, we’re toasting our readers–thanks to you, we had a wonderful year!–so curl up with a few good holiday reads:
- San Francisco architect Olle Lundberg built a house with his own hands–and scavenged materials–in northern California. (He and his wife slept in a tent in the living room until the roof was finished.) Read about their adventure in this week’s Architect Visit.
- To burn or not to burn? It’s a moral dilemma in this day and age, and Michelle searches for the answer in Domestic Dispatches.
- With Amanda on her way to California to spend Christmas with Michelle, who’s babysitting The Orchid That Owns Me?
- Our favorite Brooklyn blogger moved to Harlem to garden. We’re visiting Marie Viljoen’s new digs–and getting design tips for planting spring edibles on a city terrace–in this week’s Garden Visit.
- Wishing everyone joy, peace, and a glorious ranch. We’re visiting Slide Ranch at the edge of the world in today’s Garden Visit.
- The party continues. We’re rounding up the 7 Best Holiday Cocktails with ingredients from the garden in this week’s Holiday Recipe.
