Hippy Crafts on Pinterest

I don’t frequent Pinterest as much as I did over the holiday, I’m sure to start heading there now that spring has sprung and my garden beds are still empty. I love all the real cool eco gardening ideas, but I don’t know if I’m quite ready yet to have an herb garden on my bicycle.

The power that leads me

Behind the Wheel of My VW

Just a quick update: the weather has been amazing so the Peacemobile has been on the road this winter actually she’s given us 23,000 happy miles in the past 6 months, I don’t think she’s see that much highway in years! We’re still planning our summer road trip and I won’t go into a rant about oil companies it was bad enough they covered our beautiful beaches here in AL with oil, so let’s hope I can afford to keep her keeping on.

Happy Weekend Cruisin’

Love, Magic, Miracles

There’s not many hippie communes left in the world and as Andrew Jacobs of The New York Times wrote that, contrary to popular misconceptions, “most communes of the ’90s are not free-love refuges for flower children, but well-ordered, financially solvent cooperatives where pragmatics, not psychedelics, rule the day.”[1] There are many contemporary intentional communities all over the world, a list of which can be found at the Fellowship for Intentional Community.[2]

One of those is the Findhorn Foundation community who is celebrating their 50th anniversary year with a Love, Magic, Miracles conference to explore and celebrate the spiritual truth that love is the greatest power on earth.

Findhorn Foundation community is an experiment in conscious living, a learning centre and an ecovillage to read more visit them HERE.

How cool this toaster? This is an original item from Volkswagen Japan. This is a must for every fan of VW’s breakfast table. We can not think of a better way to burn your bread in the morning. Volkswagen Minibus official VW Toaster is an item that is not sold in retail stores, not offered by VW dealers in Japan every year to the first 5,000 subscribers who bring their cars for inspection.
